Welcome to Valle Cucina, Delaware's best kept secret for thirty years! Our name suggests Italian, and it is the best around, but we are also known for our seven time "Best of Delaware" award winning 100% jumbo lump crab cakes, seafood dishes and the area's most amazing dry aged steaks. Valle also showcases a 200+ bottle wine list.


Come as your are or formal, everyone feels at home. We take pride in our friendly service.



Located in the Pike Creek Shopping Center, off Limestone Rd. Valle, opened in 1981 as a pizzeria and has become a must try. We are inviting you to experience what many have called their best dining experience.

Valentine's Day dining so you expect that things will somewhat slower than normal. Our reservation was for 6:45 pm and we were seated about 10 minutes late. Not bad. Our seats were next to the kitchen entrance. Not good. A couple came in shortly after our arrival, complained about the seating and slow service, then got up and left. Service was exceedingly slow. The food, once delivered, was excellent. It was hot, prepared as requested, and was delicious. Overall, a better than average experience, but service really does need an upgrade.

The ambiance was very nice for a romantic Valentine's dinner with my husband. We highly recommend the calamari for an appetizer. It was probably the best I've ever tasted! Each of our entrees were equally delicious. The service was awesome as our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner out!

Once again an excellent experience at Valles. Excellent food, this time I had the Chicken Parm with a side of crabcake, both were excellent. The wife went with her usual crabcakes.

When we eat out chances are good that it will be at Valle's. The food is good, reasonably priced, and the wait staff is super. Their service, attitude and professionalism is outstanding. What can I say Valle's is our favorite restaurant.

Dinner was disappointing. Steak was tough. Broccoli was barely cooked. Brought it home and microwaved it. The cookie with ice cream dessert was also below par. Cookie was cooked to the degree of being HARD.

The food was delicious. The service was slow which I could understand if they were busy, but there were very little other diners there at the same time that we were. When we got there, there were only 4 other people dining there and by the time we left there was no more than 10 people there. Also felt the shrimp cocktail was over priced. We ordered two of the shrimp cocktails and a flat bread to share for appetizers. The order was placed all at once but the second shrimp cocktail didn't come out until way after we finished the other appetizers.

We have dined at this restaurant many times over the past 20 years and find the food to be typically good. Food was good on this night as well however the table was awful. We had a reservation for a group of eight to celebrate a milestone birthday and they seated us at the back where two tables for four are crammed into a niche next to the kitchen and takeout counter. There is loud kitchen noise, constant traffic and cold breezes when the outside door opens. This set up is totally inappropriate for a restaurant of this price point. Unfortunately there were no other options for seating our size group at that time. We made the best of it, but it’s unlikely that we will return. I’m sure that our $300 could’ve bought a better experience elsewhere.

Food is always excellent. Risottos are always a favorite. Appetizers are large enough to share. The calamari was perfect; the shrimp and scallop appetizer is great. My husband and I both had a steak and their filet is outstanding. And the staff is great..Jen is always the best.

Overall a good experience,especially for NYE.
Stephanie was our server and she was very good.
I ordered a meal which was served in one plate and it wA fine (the salmon was perfectly done-the large cashews on it was weird but I didn’t mind-served in a bed of cauliflower, which was done well too). Hubble ordered a barrel cut ribeye-but I’m pretty sure he was served a sirloin-or it was a pretty poor piece of ribeye. He ordered a side crab cake (this was very good with large pieces of crab) and a side of smashed potatoes. All came on large plates, but we were seated at a small table. Silly.

Went for New Year's Eve and even with the limited menu the selection was varied. I had the Veal Saltimbocca which was delish. Different from the normal presentation but delicious. We both enjoyed our meals and will return to work our way through the menu.
