We dined with some good friends last night at Valenza. The food was perfecto!!!
Some of the delicious salads and entrees we shared included:
Panzanella salad - we all agreed, best salad we have had in years! it was a delicate blend of heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, melon, onion and garlic with burrata. So yummy!
Pappardelle - an Italian favorite that was so flavorful, we can't stop thinking about it!
Capellini - simply delicious and a delicate and light blend with fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil
Lumache Nero - best version of this we have ever had! Seasoned beautifully!
Saltimbocca - Pork lovers dream! Very tasty!
All ingredients were so fresh, plates presented beautifully, and warm ambience of restaurant all added to a delightful evening! We highly recommend Valenza

First time back since COVID. Surprised to find the cleanliness rating was an 85! We stayed anyway because we had made a special trip.
Waiter was pleasant but stretched very thin (on a Tuesday night) so service was uneven. Food was reliable and good, but Gin Gimlet was bland and disappointing. Liquor is expensive. Rye cocktail was $16.00! Asked for bread, which I didn’t see on the menu. Assumed it was included, but it turns out that it showed up on our $150bill and was $8.00. It was good though.

Going to give them more time to get their act together before we decide to try it again.

We had a great time. A bite loud but it is a small place. Valet is crazy as they need to move off the road as cars can block the street and opening. The food was great especially the mussels. David S is a great waiter. Ask for him as he won’t steer you wrong.

The ravioli was wonderful as always. However, the mista salad was swimming in a balsamic dressing. I would not order that again - a terrible salad.

I had my first visit to Valenza last night with a friend and we had a reservation. Seating was prompt (there weren't many there), and we sat outside. It was a hot evening, but they had lots of fans going, which was nice. Took waitress a while to get to us, and when she did, she was such a "low talker" that we could hardly hear her and she never introduced herself (I had to ask her name). The food was just ok.... I had the "special" heirloom tomato salad (appetizer, not an entree-sized salad), which had about a cup to cup-½ of greens, the tomatoes, about 4-6 small chunks of honeydew and cantaloupe, with a nice vinegarette dressing and wonderful creamy goat cheese on the bottom. Delish! But guys, this starter salad was $17!! SEVENTEEN DOLLARS?!? Absolutely ridiculous. I got the mussels (appetizer) as my entree and they were good, but the sauce was rather heavy on the Sambuca and fennel, which made it a bit too licorice-y for me. There were a lot there, but the mussels themselves were tiny. However, they cost less than a dang lettuce/tomato salad! The service could've been a bit more attentive, and my goodness, the flies outside were horrible. You could hardly eat with having to wave them off so much, which surprised me with all the fans going. The wait staff wears jeans, which I found it a bit sloppy for such upscale prices. It got really crowded and really loud, which I don't mind at all, but I always fail to understand parents who bring young, shrieking kids to a restaurant like this (and fail to leave the table with them). Not the restaurant's fault, but detracted from our experience. Of course, the parents were oblivious. I may try them again, but I won't be rushing back.
