Easily the best family run restaurant in Hendon. Decent specials board with 3 or 4 choices per course and they were flexible to change and mix up things if when asked. Easy parking close by by check google.

This is an absolute gem of a local restaurant and we often take family when they visit. Prices are very reasonable, there’s lots of choice and the food is all fresh, and Neal is SO attentive and just a joy to chat to. Just perfect.

Had a lovely meal at Valentino's last night. We went with our son and daughter-in-law who live locally. Neil, the proprietor welcomed us like old friends. The food was excellent, the service good and it was not over-priced. Will definitely go again.
