Four of us had dinner for the first time at Valerio's and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I cannot think of one possible negative. We were warmly greeted by the owner/chef, taken to a cozy corner table, again greeted by a very pleasant and knowledgeable server. We were given PLENTY of time to enjoy our drinks and meal. Our mixed drinks were perfectly concocted, the appetizers and meals were all so good that there was hardly a crumb left. Dessert was also delicious and light. (It would take too many words to describe all the food we ate in detail.) Extremely fun and enjoyable evening spent in Little Italy.
Arguably the best Italian in Cleveland. Everything is great, Apps, Mains, Deserts.
Food, atmosphere, and service are top notch!! Noisy on Saturday night, but that’s part of the New York vibe.
Manuela was a wonderful waitress!! Loved the wine, food, and ambiance!! A true gem!!
As always a great evening and fantastic food.
Got two of the seafood specials and prepared to perfection.
Food was outstanding. Our reservation was for right when it opened so it was a bit quiet in there but overall the experience was good.
Food was great
Wonderful atmosphere, authentic and exquisitely done food.
Quaint and fantastic food, really loved it, great service
This is one of our favorites in little Italy. Service was great and the food was amazing. The had squid ink pasta with mussels which I have not had in years and it was as good as I have ever had. Definitely recommend.
This is a wonderful place! Had the best Gnocchi I have ever eaten! My husband got the black spaghetti and Mussels, it was fantastic!! The owners are so gracious and Kind, even came out to meet us! Definitely going back to Valerio’s!! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!
Great food and a great experience. Even what seemed like a simple dish was done extremely well and was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!
We tried Valerio for the first time. We chose an excellent appetizer of grilled eggplant and tomatoes, actually bruschetta without the bread. I enjoyed the Insalata Silvia . It was a nice change from a traditional lettuce salad. For my main dish I had veal piccata, and my husband ordered the special of black pasta with mussels. There was more than enough in our portions, so we carried leftovers home to enjoy later.
The service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant.
My only disappointment was that the coffeemaker was out of order so I was unable to have a cappuccino.
We will most definitely return to Valerio’s.
In our opinion, Valerio's is the best Italian restaurant in Cleveland - very authentic. The menu is very interesting and they always offer amazing specials.
ALWAYS a great experience at Valerio’s!
When traveling to Cleveland it is the ONLY place I have dinner!
Without a doubt, it's allways an enjoyable and delicious meal at Valerio's!
As usual, excellent food, staff, and service. They do a great job. Even my grandmother couldn't do better (don't tell her)
Great food and great service!
Outstanding food and service. I would happily go back.
Outstanding attention to detail. Service second to none. The selection of seafood was plentiful and each dish was served piping hot. I love the mussels, chicken liver special and the procutto and melon. The bronzino was served whole but the kitchen didn’t hesitate to filet it for us. One of Cleveland’s finest restaurants. Bravo to the chef Valerio.
This was the first I came back since Covid restrictions…what a complete joy it was. The food is still amazing and nothing beats the gnocchi! The wait servers are attentive and helpful. I’m glad to be back!
The food was spectacular! However it got too loud as the night wore on. We will come earlier next time.
Great Mother's Day dinner at Valerio's. Always delicious and enjoyable.
We had a wonderful for Mother's day brunch. Pace was perfect, service was great and food was delicioso!!! Will be back as often as we can.
The overall service was excellent from the Valet parking to the restaurant staff. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful and the food was excellent! We will be back!
This is my favorite restaurant in Cleveland. Family owned and operated, wonderful food and service! Fantastic wine list too! The best you’ll ever have! My favorite is the lobster pasta!
So many specials ( almost too many to chose). Food so good. Will be back and recommend
We had a wonderful meal. Service was great!
Excellent food and service. Try to get here every time we visit Cleveland.
What dinning used to be. Like traveling back in time of the days of really good food, PROFESSIONAL waitstaff and overall great dinner experience. One of our newest favorite places!!
Absolutely amazing! The service was some of the best that we have ever had and the food was perfection! I was so impressed and everyone who worked there was so incredibly kind and wonderful! They also make a really good Old Fashioned!
awesome food without a doubt we will be back. teen athletic girls split spaghetti and it could have fed another with the amount of food. wife had the mushroom ravioli and the flavor of the mushrooms was from another planet. the earthy rich mushroom flavor explodes in your mouth. Money well spent! small place that fills up fast. good luck with your timing if you don't have a reservation.
The chicken and mushrooms dish was delicious! Everything was perfectly seasoned. We really enjoyed our meal!
Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. The food is exceptional plus the restaurant is intimate yet warm and friendly.
Went with a group of 5 of us and enjoyed an amazing dinner. Great appetizers, wine, dinner, and dessert. Fantastic authentic Italian cuisine. We will return!
We are returning diners,brought friends and impressed them highly. Excellent food and service.
Excellent waiter(Owen), fabulous service, all food served was as stated and piping hot. One of Cleveland’s friendliest restaurants!
