                                  Great Food and ambiance with exemplary service!! In town from Philly celebrating son’s advanced degree Graduation from Vanderbilt. Originally was recommended other Italian restaurants, but GLAD I picked here. Seems the locals always know where the best places are, as seen in reviews. This place did not disappoint!! Old world Italian done WELL!

                                  Fabulous dinner in quaint historic building that has been beautifully updated. We started with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Lodi region of California to pair with the yummy burrata appetizer as well as our entrees (veal saltimboca and the evening’s veal chop special). We finished with after-dinner drinks in the bar

                                  We dined for Mother’s Day! I definitely recommend the table side Caesar salad and the lobster ravioli!

                                  Had wanted to go there when visiting Nashville and finally got around to it for a special celebration. We enjoyed our meal. Food delicious, service was great, restaurant has great ambiance. The only negative was the noise level of our room was really loud so it was not easy to carry on conversation. But we will definitely go back next time I visit Nashville.

                                  Celebrated my birthday there last night. It was PERFECT! the ambience, the food ( lasagna / seafood risotto amazing) & wine plus the outstanding service. I would recommend this place to anyone and will return when I am back in town.

                                  Valentino’s is fantastic. Coming from NY and trying several Italian restaurants in Nashville, nothing compares to Valentino’s. The food is incredible along with a great staff and ambiance. This is the best place. The waiter Limeann is absolutely incredible. I will be coming here whenever possible. Thank you Valentino’s for bringing what Nashville needed, A great authentic Italian restaurant.

                                  Charming Italian restaurant in a beautiful old building. Our waiter was the best, and the food delicious...every mouthful! Our only complaint was that the portions were not just generous, but enormous! It seemed like such a waste of food. We would go back, but we would split one entree instead of each ordering our own!

                                  Very classic Italian. Great service. Risotto was clearly made with care and all the seafood was perfectly cooked. Tiramisu had great espresso flavor but seemed like it didn’t set quite right. Wine selection just ok.

                                  We had a terrific dinner and an outstanding dessert at Valentino's. My wife and I went here for the first time last week, and were so glad we did! The food was terrific and the service was outstanding (probably some of the best service I've had in Nashville). We both had pasta and received generous portions that were delicious! The real special part of the evening was bananas foster created and served table side. It was the best bananas foster dessert I have ever had! I highly recommend this restaurant and we'll be back very soon!
