    We chose Valentina because I had never been there. We were celebrating my birthday. The food was unique and delicious! Service was great and very friendly. Price reasonable. It was very hot in the covered patio, but still good ambiance. Air conditioned inside. Highly recommend Valentina in Leucadia!

    Valentina is phenomenal and easily one of the top restaurants in the area. Go with (fun) people who like to share so you can enjoy more of the menu!

    Henry, our server, was amazing from the git go. It was our first time there and he explained how the menu worked. His service throughout the meal was both patient and inquisitive, cementing our delicious experience. Our choices included the quail (5 stars), meatballs (5 stars), artichoke (5 stars), bread (5 stars), gentlemen’s rice (5 stars), and finally green beans. All tasted beyond any expectations. Kudos to the chef!!! Since we live nearby (Cardiff), we will be proud to return.

    We have always had good meals here. Last night Wednesday was an off night. The grilled squid was tough and a bit overcooked. The chicken paillard a bit dry and too much sauce. The salad cherry tomatoes hard and not sweet.

    It’s a great little local restaurant. Menu is good. Only issue is it’s a bit noisy on the inside (it’s a small place ) so if that bothers you go for outside seating

    We shared the broccolini, the octopus, and croqueta tapas, as well as the sea bass and the steak entrees. Broccolini was good. All the others were excellent! Thank you!

    It was our 21st Anniversary we were celebrating. We had a fabulous dinner as always when we dine here. The food is always on point and can’t wait to try their new location in Solana Beach.
