Overpriced and snobby, rude waiters. Will not go back.

Wonderful food, great wines and they know how to recommend and serve the wines. Incredible selection of Italian wines. We have experienced impeccable service there.

The cuisine is not what it once was, but the service remains outstanding and the wine list remains deep and reasonably priced. I have a soft spot in my heart for Valentino to this day, even though I think it has been coasting for a while on the food side.
