Hanging at Heartland Rehab. and my honey needed a break from the food. Menu choices are great from pasta to pizza. One night we had a meatball pizza to go asked for well done it was perfect.

Well, service was poor, missing sugar at the table, no olive oil or Balsamic was available as well, upon request. Waitress needs little more attention on simple details. The taste of the Pizza is great, very well made. Price is okay, but $ 5.00 per extra pieces of Prescuit and other $ 3.25 for arrugula makes the whole deal a... More

Whenever people ask me to recommend a good Italian restaurant, I always say Valentino's. Their pizza is great, but I especially love their dinners. My favorite may be chicken cardinal and my husband's is chicken valentino. I think we've tried just about everything on the menu and can honestly say we've never been disappointed.

As a New Yorker I have learned not to expect great pizza in Florida. Been down here 13 years. Just tried Valentino tonight- and let me tell ya- THAT is pizza! Perfecto!!!! We will be back to try other things. Calamari with spicy marinara was also good!

The Fetuchini Alfredo was excellent. The Steak Sandwich was something to behold. The portions were large.

There are times when one doesn't like to cook, so a takeout pizza is a good filler. We choose Valentinos because it is the closes one to us. I am spoiled by the New York pizzas and always find myself not enjoying it when we bring it home. Sorry about that Val - you need a better pizza maker.

Thank Lucelle R
