Lovely setting. Older building but very clean. We were the only ones there for dinner at 6:00 pm on Monday. The lady took care of us was extremely polite and everything came out very timely. My wife's chicken parmigian was good but not anything special. I had a french prepared steak which was good but a little over cooked. Prices... More

Good food. split the dinner. very large portions like all Italian food. nice view... great View! The hosts were very nice. According to a local couple who makes the best Manhattan around. We had the key and a half carafe it was $10 or dinner was $30 total. It was a quiet setting due to the time of year, but,... More

Been here many times and have never had a bad meal. The restaurant family owned by the chef and his wife. All veal recipes my favorites. Everything always fresh and side of homemade spaghetti excellent. They never seem to have many customers and this is a shame as they have a good bar, nice atmosphere and some of the best... More

Decor is definitely dated but really cool and clean. Someone mentioned a James Bond movie and I definitely see it.... was surprised to see only 2 cars in parking lot but went in anyway, glad we did. The 60's-70's bar was really cool, my parents would feel rate at home here. Service was friendly and prompt, however there were no... More

This restaurant dates back quite awhile and the facility itself could use some tender loving care. However, the food was excellent and the presentation was wonderful. The service exceptional and although we dined in the dated dining area ,like going back to the "Madmen" years, we all found the red leather chairs were extremely comfortable. The views are out over... More

Family owned restaurant which in my opinion serves THE BEST chicken cacciatore I have had. I have also recently tried the stuffed sole and that was also very good. Your meal is started out with a vegetable tray, homemade pepper biscuits and homemade bread. This is followed by a salad. I like my cacciatore with spaghetti and you also get... More

My husband & I were there about 18 months ago. We went back this past weekend and were pleased that not much has changed. Still a complimentary plate of crudité on being seated. Excellent Bruschetta warm and crusty & Eggplant Rolatini appetizers. Complimentary house baked biscuits with fennel, house-baked warm bread. Home-baked lasagna daily special inexpensively priced but very well... More

I had the chicken Marsala, it was awesome, best I have ever had. The salad was awesome, and I don't even like salads, the entire meal was perfect, the tiramisu was great. It's an older couple that runs the place, they are very nice and attentive. I look forward to my next meal there.

Valentino's sits atop a hill off Route 5 in the little hamlet of Cranesville. The owners are delightful people who strive to please your palate. Before your meal you are served a relish tray with homemade pepper biscuits. Then comes your salad. Then your meal. I have never been able to finish this dish and always have enough left for...
