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.

Food, atmosphere, and service are top notch!! Noisy on Saturday night, but that’s part of the New York vibe.

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.

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.

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.

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.
