Valle Cucina Italiana Ratings and Reviews
Valles never disappoints! It's my "neighborhood" favorite for a really good meal and great value. Tried something different. Was OK but not my favorite. Love their chicken parm, veal parm, eggplant parm, lasagna, scampi, steaks. It was another great evening. You can NOT go wrong dining here.
We enjoy Balles quite a lot. My only major complaint is I cannot bring my best freind with garlic allergy here. Literally there is nothing she can eat here without garlic in it. We went to Italy and she was always accommodated easily for her garlic allergy.
Valle's is an excellent restaurant. Good service and ambiance. However it is the food that makes the experience. The crab cakes are the best I have ever had anywhere. Simply outstanding. The pizza is also excellent. The prices are not bad, specifically when compared to the quality of the food. I highly recommend it.
Was on a date with my husband. Food was excellent and wine list was great. I had the filet au poivre and my husband had the veal parm. With the size of the parm, we took half home. The waitress was very nice but seemed to want to rush us a little.
I wish the restaurant was bigger. The noise level of the screaming toddler next to us who wanted her meal NOW made it tough to talk. Parents were not interested in stopping the tantrum.
You wouldn't expect to get an excellent quality steak at this strip mall restaurant, but the steaks are definitely top notch and always cooked to perfection. I like to pair with their amazing risotto and Brussels sprouts. Manager Dean is always around and knows what's going on, and wait staff is always on point.
We have been eating at Valle's since 1987 and have never had a bad experience or ordinary meal. Great local resturant a real find, and good value for your meal.
Friends from out of town, comment that it must be great having such a great resturant located so close to home. Valle's has a second to none wine list and great mixed drinks.
Valle's is our go to resturant for business , family dinning , and special events.
Nice Italian restaurant. We came for a post college graduation dinner with a party of 10. Atmosphere was nice and quiet with dim lighting. Food was delicious with generous portons. A little pricy but not out of the ordinary when comparing to similiar restaurants. Only complaint would be that it really doesn't accomodate bigger parties. We were all together but at a table of 4 next to a table of 6. Not good for conversing with each other and it felt very tight all around us. We made due and had a really nice dinner. They allowed us to make reservations....a plus in my book. I would highly recommend.
Inexperienced bartender, Husband ordered salmon bites in vodka cream sauce, but they just doused it in oil and forgot the sauce! Skip the chicken Ava- it was awful and so overpowered with rosemary. We used to enjoy this restaurant but the food was poor. Also, we had reservations but had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Bread plate was dirty and no one wiped the crumb- covered seats when they cleared the table.
Just a standard neighborhood strip mall place. Actually the fresh veal, gnocchi, and mussels were very good. Unfortunately the mussels' white wine sauce was too salty. The red sauce for both the other dishes was quite poor to terrible. If this reataurant decided to pay attention to sauces the way they handle the fresh base dishes then this trattoria would be an excellent value! Trying to help here, but they do a very solid local business and probably won't be open to change.
Valle is a great neighborhood Italian place. It's relaxed but nice, not too noisy, and the menu has something for everyone. The pizza is great, but so are the entrees (several come in half-portion sizes). Best crabcakes anywhere (entree or appetizer). I took a friend for her birthday, but it's a good family place (my kids are older). I also enjoy Valle for lunch.
We live close so go often. Everything is excellent! Try the crab risotto ...it is full of crab. Their appetizers could be a dinner and definitely can be shared. Salmon choices are amazing. We also had the filet which was well worth the money. Service from Hannah was outstanding. It was a bit noisy on a Friday night, but they don't rush you. Our favorite go to place!
