We visited Valentinos about 7 years ago which from memory was disappointing (which is why we had not gone back) but we thought we would try the restaurant again recently. The entrance is a rather dilapidated affair from the car park and oh boy, watch those steps on the way in to the restaurant itself from the entrance. The overwhelming... More

Dear John, I'm sorry we were not to your taste however as you can see from most of our reviews we are quite confident in the style of Italian food and ambience we provide. You seem to be a very unhappy reviewer ( 4 out of 5 are very angry). Could i suggest that you maybe spend some time praising... More

The pizza in Valentino's is the best I've ever had. Thin and crispy with fresh tasty toppings. Not over cooked and really really tasty. It's the only place where I can eat a whole pizza because it's not made of doughy bread!! Service was good and they made sure we were in time to get to the cinema. Would definately... More

A few of our friends came to Ripon for some food and a few drinks in the spirit of Christmas. We all went out in Christmas jumpers and started our night here...well I can honestly say I'm so glad I did my wife and I could not decide what we wanted pizza or pasta! The waiter over heard this and... More

I don't always want to go to ultra post restaurants or gastro pubs - but I never want to go to eateries where the food is rubbish. Valentino's is a totally unpretentious destination but prides itself on some key features of a good food destination. Fermino especially, and Daniel and Richard always make us feel welcome - and sometimes Manila... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I was a baby 28 years and it has never been better. The fish dishes are the best I have had ( better than a French port) the staff are friendly and polite but the food speaks for itself. The puddings are made by the Italian owner personally love the banoffee pie... More

I can't big this place up enough!! Most authentic and best tasting Italian in Ripon without a doubt. But to top it off, they are the most family friendly place too. Fantastic staff who bend over backwards to make you feel welcome. We will always keep coming back!

This is the best and most authentic italian restaurant in Ripon. It is simply super. The food is ridiculously good, the ambience and atmosphere feels comfortable an as if you were on holiday. Have been visiting for years and have never been disappointed in any way. Relaxed and easy going but with attention to detail and diners experience. Early doors... More

A group of us ate here. As there was a four year old in our party we arrived at 5.30pm. This is obviously the time for those with children as there were lots of children there. Our meal was served by an extremely friendly Italian gentleman who was very good with the four year old in our party. I will... More
