Went with my daughter to get a bowl of pasta. Arrived at restaurant around 1605hrs. We always get the same thing. Ordered a salad, 2 penne pasta and 1 pasta to go. There were 3 other tables of 2 people in the restaurant. We ordered right away. We sat for almost an hour for 2 plates of pasta. The waitress... More

Took my family here for a mid week treat. The restaurant is clean and acoustically good which is important to me. Garlic bread and bruschetta to start which was really good. However, the main course took too long to come and was not hot enough which was a shame because the restaurant was basically empty by that time. Service was... More

Valentino's was recommended by hotel front desk as one of the best Italian restaurant in town. I made reservations for seven of us for dinner. When we got there no one was there to receive us. I grabbed one of the server and told him about our reservations. We were reluctantly told to go and sit on a table, which... More

Valentino's was in its hey day during the 1980's and even the 1990's. I guess the owners are not interested in who they hire (I assume they are hiring family and/or friends) because you really don't get that warm welcome when you enter this restaurant. The food portions have also decreased in size yet have kept the same price. And... More

Valentino's location is off the beaten track. It deserves lots of business. We ate there on a cloudy evening. The restaurant has recently been redone inside and out and looks quite smart.Our server, Kayleigh, was superb. She was attentive but not obtrusive. She had a pleasant, friendly personality. We ordered pizzas and a chef's salad each. The ingredients in the... More

I ordered from the lunch menu. Veal and a Valentino's signature salad. I have enough left over for another lunch. Fast polite services, delicious food and good prices. Relaxing atmosphere. One of my favorite restaurants.

Went in on a very busy night for a quick take out. Long wait, but understandable on a busy night, and hostesses checked frequently on my order despite the busy evening. Price seemed a little steep at $15 plus tax for a small piece of lasagna, and 2 cold stale pieces of focaccia. However, lasagna was DELICIOUS, worth the wait,... More

This place is a Hamilton institution, and deservedly. It's on King West at Paradise right on the eastern edge of Westdale Village, awkward to access from the west (but easy from the east), and with limited parking in a small lot at the front. (You can park on the residential side street). Go for the pizzas with their homemade crusts,... More
