Food and service here were top notch even on a very packed Saturday night. Jessica did a great job as our server. If you're a fan of seafood pasta dishes, you cannot go wrong with the Lumache Nero dish -- superb! Only recommendation is that some pasta dishes could be improved by having the noodles a little more al dente. The Lumache Nero dish was spot on, but if our other primi order — Pappardelle — would have been more al dente, it would have been difficult to choose a favorite.

One of the three best Italian restaurants in Atlanta. Food is delicious, servers are friendly, helpful, and humble. Convenient location and easy parking. N.B. If you played next to the bass guitarist in your garage band, and have lost some hearing, either go to this restaurant very early in the evening or at the end - it's energetic and a challenge for old rock 'n rollers!

Our waitress was attentive at first and then seemed to disappear after we got our food. We told her it was our anniversary and she did nothing special for us. The food was okay. The spices were off and the desert was not very good. We had the chocolate pudding with salted caramel. I think they use olive oil and way too much salt. Not pleasing to the pallet.

Love Valenza! This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Atlanta in my opinion. I love that you can order half portions of the pasta, so they then become great for sharing. Service is always wonderful and the atmosphere is beautiful as well. Highly recommend!

It is a bit pricey, but it worth a visit. I would have expected a better bread variety and quality for an italian restaurant. The waiters are all very nice and the ambient is very good.

Valenza serves excellent food. The Saltimboca was delicious. The Spaghettini with meatballs was phenomenal! Best meatballs I’ve had in a long time! Wonderful Italian wine selection! We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back!

Went on a Sunday so could take advantage of their Sunday supper price fixe menu. 2 of my friends got the butternut squash entree which is excellent. Other friend got the silver hake and was underwhelmed. Small piece with not much flavor. I got the flat iron steak which was not part of the Sunday supper and it was excellent. Nice atmosphere, definitely worth the price.

Valenza never fails to deliver. The food is always great, service friendly and efficient and the prices very fair. At dinner we actually said "Have we ever had a bad meal here?" and the answer was a resounding no! One of our favs.

Good authentic Italian food. I had the ravioli which was very good and others in the party had the spaghetti which I tried and was very good. Service was nice and friendly and food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time. Use the valet parking because i tried parking on the street and gave up after looking for a reasonable place for 10 minutes. You just pay a tip to the valet. Highly recommend!
