Valentino’s was on the list of places to try whilst out in albufeira and I’m glad we tried, proper to visiting the reviews had given us an insight into what we could expect.

It was a good visit, the waiting staff were very friendly and attentive catering to us well. We originally sat inside on a table towards the middle but a table by the terrace windows quickly became available and they moved us swiftly there before taking our orders.

We both ordered the bruschetta with tomato starter, although small and light it was very well presented and very tasty.

Mains courses we had the tomato and basil gnocchi, and a calzone with a side order (of the main course macaroni and cheese) again, all presented very well and all delicious, only issue for me was the portion sizes of the gnocchi and macaroni, between 2 of us we easily managed 3 main courses and then a pudding.

We tried the cheesecake, which we were told that along with all the other puddings were all home made - it was tasty and presented well!

A very good visit all in all!

After a recommendation about this place,
me and my boyfriend decided to check out this place and we were not disappointed.
From the second we arrived a very friendly waiter was waiting outside to welcome us. His name was Luis Miguel and he honestly made our whole experience a night to remember. The resturant was stunning inside and outside surrounded by a huge wine collection, a selection of different hams and a gorgeous outside seating area, overlooking the breathtaking views of the beach and sea. Luis was very friendly, bubbly and made both myself and my boyfriend feel like we were the only two people in the resturant. He had a lot of passion about his job, italian culture and food. You could really tell he was happy to work there and cared about customers having a great experience. The whole night from beginning to end was flawless, a strong 5* experience and we would honestly come back to albufeira just to eat here again!

Very happy customers
Danielle & Joseph

We always look at trip advisor to recommend places to eat on holiday and this place never came up in our search which surprised us both as it's fabulous. We wanted somewhere special for lunch where we could enjoy a relaxed lunch with our baby being accommodated and a view of the beach/sea. We had walked down to the beach and saw it on the left, at first assuming the street side area was the restaurant we then saw it has a beautiful and large terrace dining area. Just what we were looking for! The place is beautifully decorated and the menu offers extensive Italian cuisine. We enjoyed everything from the mixed seafood appetiser, vongolese and fritto Misto. We finished with tiramisu which was as good as any I've had. The staff were friendly and allowed us time to take in the atmosphere, view and the baby napping. It's not the cheapest but worth every penny.

Valentinos certainly looks the business. It is surprisingly large with both sheltered seating and tables overlooking the beach. There are flowers (mainly Petunias) everywhere which makes the place look nice. Service was good but quality of meals did vary a bit. One meal I particularly liked was a prawn curry risotto. Curry flavoured risotto may sound odd but it actually worked. The only bad meal was mushroom ravioli which was smothered in oil. Food was reasonably priced for the resort but like many Italian restaurants in the UK beer at 5 euros was expensive. Other restaurants charged 2.50 to 3 euros.
