Great ambiance. We had a drink next door at one door east first and then went to dinner at Valentinos. Food was amazing and I loved the open kitchen concept.

Wow. This was the perfect night out. The food and the service were both superb. I loved the open kitchen, as I like to see what the Chefs are doing. If you love fine dining and Italian food, check this place out!

This place is a very wonderful Italian restaurant. It had a lively big city buzz and the food was excellent. It is a little bit off of the beaten path and definitely a place known by the locals and not at all touristy. We started with the house made ravioli with shaved black truffle and egg yolk. One of the... More

I really enjoyed reading Valentinos menu, hearing the specials from the wait staff and enjoying the elegant setting. I loved the food pairings. Had Fois Gras with chocolate and berries...amazing. Had sushi tuna, caviar and wasabi appetizer...delightful. My friends rib eye was really interesting with pepper crust and roasted greens. But for $56 it seemed high. And the rest was... More

I drive by Valentino daily and I'm looking at it from my office window as I write this review, but somehow never tried the place until last night. And last night was a challenging night for anyone in the restaurant business - Valentine's Day. Trying out a new restaurant for a Valentine's dinner is only a little less foolish than... More

Everyone in our large party had a great meal at Antonio's. We were in the private dining room, which was beautiful and the service was great. Very fun evening!

We really enjoyed our dining experience Here for my wife BD. My wife thought the shrimp fusilli was excellent. I had bronzino and the fish dish was probably one of the three best that I have tasted in my life. My son loved his pasta dish with scallops. Savory chocolate cake for dessert. Go there.
