    A hit in every aspect- food, service, atmosphere, low noise level and excellent wine and mixed drinks. The waitstaff was exceptionally well informed in providing background and guidance on food and drink choices- very professional. Chef Velario stopping by to check with us on our experience topped it off.

    The food and service at Valerio's were absolutely amazing. Our server could not have been better. He was superb. So friendly and attentive and he really knew the menu and took the time to explain things and make recommendations (at my request). Our meals were fabulous. My husband enjoyed the salmon cioppino special, and I had the tortellini. The gelato was also amazing. The restaurant is small and a bit crowded. Unfortunately with a table of two, we found ourselves crammed in a corner near the kitchen. That's a bit disappointing when I made a reservation a month ago on Open Table. But the people there are fabulous and the food is wonderful.

    The food was very impressive. We made a reservation and arrived a few minutes late with no issue. We didn’t have a server it seemed and the bartender ended up serving us. It took about 20 minutes to be asked what we wanted to drink.
