Whenever people ask me to recommend a good Italian restaurant, I always say Valentino's. Their pizza is great, but I especially love their dinners. My favorite may be chicken cardinal and my husband's is chicken valentino. I think we've tried just about everything on the menu and can honestly say we've never been disappointed.

As a New Yorker I have learned not to expect great pizza in Florida. Been down here 13 years. Just tried Valentino tonight- and let me tell ya- THAT is pizza! Perfecto!!!! We will be back to try other things. Calamari with spicy marinara was also good!

The Fetuchini Alfredo was excellent. The Steak Sandwich was something to behold. The portions were large.

There are times when one doesn't like to cook, so a takeout pizza is a good filler. We choose Valentinos because it is the closes one to us. I am spoiled by the New York pizzas and always find myself not enjoying it when we bring it home. Sorry about that Val - you need a better pizza maker.

We went for an early pizza and caught happy hour. The pizza was crispy, the sauce was tasty and the cheese was plentiful. One of the best pizzas around. The menu included a large variety of appetizers, specialty pizzas and entrees. Happy Hour was a bonus making for a very affordable meal. The Italian dishes I saw being delivered to... More

Had a wonderful dinner here on a recommendation from friends that live near here. After ordering, we were given a plate of garlic rolls that were to die for! All of our entrees were delicious, three veal dishes and lobster ravioli. We are going to try their pizza next week. Looks incredible!

You know the scenario...we spent too long at the beach watching the sunset - and after finally getting showered, we looked for someplace close to our hotel to get some decent food, because we are starved at 8pm. As we were leaving the hotel, we saw a woman with a pizza box - she was trying to give away leftover... More
