I've been to Valenza atleast 30 times and I don't know what happened this time with the food.. whether they changed vendors or chefs but the buccatini was super bland/dry compared to what I have experienced in the past and the pork tenderloin entree was the worst pork tenderloin i've ever had.

Not taking social distancing for COVID seriously. Way too crowded and tables too close together. Love this place but won’t be back until after pandemic.

Went out for my wife’s birthday. We only eat outside these days and Valenza accommodated. The outside space is heated and has good ambiance. The waiter was attentive and food was great as always. My wife had the branzino fish special and I had the strip steak. Both were excellent. The waiter surprised us with a special dessert for my wife’s birthday. Thanks for making this a “normal” evening for us. We miss those and all the wonderful restaurants in Atlanta.

We visited Valenza on a Wednesday evening to take advantage of their wine, chicken parm & spaghetti special. The serving size was large and the quality of the food was excellent. The meal included a glass of Chianti which was delicious! All for $25! Service was great too! We will definitely go back!

Food and ambience were great as usual. First time I've had slow service at Valenza (and I've probably been there 50 times). And worst of all, it was slow on the drinks! Twice, for at least 5 minutes, we were sitting with empty wine glasses. And this was on a Monday night! Not that busy.

This was an unexpectedly fantastic dinner. Excellent pasta, out of this world saltimbocca, and perfectly made drinks. The service was outstanding and the outdoor setup is well executed during this crazy Covid year. I can’t wait to get back again soon.

I was really disappointed in how Valenza is handling Covid. while the staff was masked appropriately, the dining room was packed - every table full and not spaced out

Food was great! Great disappointment from the recommended wine - we expected good quality at $18 a glass....both of us ended up with a an after dinner headache which is a symptom of a poor wine quality. There was very little attention to COVID-19 restrictions and minimum required distance wasn't respected at all times. Service was clumsy, waiters fell down, dropped utensils on the floor, late serving us...etc. Other than the food itself, minus the wine, nothing exciting.

Everything was great except for the wait for our table. We had a reservation for outdoor dining but were seated late as we were unaware that outdoor dining is first come first served. That is not on open table so just be aware - if its a nice night you will probably have to wait and there were several parties before us who had to wait as well. Once we were finally seated everthing was 5 star!
