My wife purchased a Valentino dinner package online. This was the best meal I have had in LA since we married 6 years ago. We live on Maui and spend time in LA on a regular basis. Valentino has a warm and old style Italian...More

We ended our business meeting with folks from all over the US with a great dinner at Valentino's. From the appetizers to the deserts, the meal was the best. Highly recommended for groups and small tables.

This is an old timer and is no longer fashionable, simply because it has been around for 40 years. Nobody bothers to write about it any more. But the food is still innovative, authentic and of outstanding quality. This is what you get in a...More

famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa

How can a reviewer describe Valentino "Horrible"! Supposedly he dined at Valentino for Restaurant week June 5 (DineLA restaurant week). Valentino has not participated in Los Angeles Restaurant Week in about 3 or 4 years. Wrong restaurant, perhaps? Or just in the mood for some negative posting, which is all too common with many people.
