    I’m running out of wonderful things to say about Valerio’s. It is our favorite Italian restaurant for good reason…the food is delicious, the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient (especially Salvatore), and the service is excellent. It’s the kind of place where you feel as if you are family!

    Food very good but not great. Food served promptly. Service very attentive. A very comfortable environment but old looking. The restaurant was filled and it was very noisy. Prices a little high for the quality. There were many specials, it was difficult to make a judgement because they were presented by the waiter without prices. They would be better off printing a single sheet with the daily specials so the customer could make an educated decision.

    Superb food & service. Many chef’s specials, mostly seafood, sounded delectable. Cioppino and stuffed rainbow trout dishes were outstanding. Staff split a large salad in two for us. White wine choices by the bottle are lacking which challenges pairing with seafood.

    By far the best, Italian restaurant in Cleveland. And this is coming from a Sicilian, the only searches for the best Italian food. Valerio is always my first pick coming into Little Italy reminds me of the food my grandmother made decades ago.

    Very good food. Orecchietti was delicious. Lovely dinner salad with a delicious vinaigrette. Server recommended a delicious Italian glass of wine to accompany my meal. One thing that surprised me. Bread was really cold in the middle. Surprised it wasn’t warmed or at least thawed well. Good though. We will be back. Now a favorite in Little Italy.
