Traveling through from Wilmington to Charleston and decided I'd had enough of fast food this trip! Asked locals where to get "authentic" Italian food and they sent me to this place in Surfside. Now, this is a little over the normal budget for a business traveler but WOW was it worth it. Greeted at the door by Sal (turns out owns the place) and I spoke a little Italian with him. The bread is brought in from Jersey (amazing) and the sausage (sweet italian) was just like home! I had the alfredo special which was supposed to come with salmon (i get fish ALL the time) but I asked to sub in the sausage instead and it was a HIT. The pasta e fagioli was unbelievably good.

While this place is a little out of the way from the I interstate and more in the tourist area..I will go out of my way to eat here next trip!

They certainly were ready for us, with our name on the table. We were greeted warmly. Danielle was most attentive, very friendly and played along with all the joking around. She was very patient, since two of our party were held up in traffic due to a serious accident, and we really kept her waiting. She didn't miss a beat!
We pre-ordered two stuffed veal chops which were excellent with enough to take home! Everyone was happy with their meals, the excellent breads and salad. Thanks again! We'll be back!

Food was great ..Owner was pleasant and took time to share his story from Sicily..pasta's were made fresh along with pizza. It's great to get quality Italian food.

I selected Valentino's for my birthday with friends because of the decor and the expansive menu they offer. All entries on the menu from appetizers to entrees are a gastronomical treat.
