We decided to get pizza and undoubtedly it is the best pizza I have ever had Best ever food and service. We had enough for leftovers and it was even better the next day.

Stopped in on a whim..great food, waitress ( Gwendolyn) was wonderful. Owner (Sal) stopped by several times to make sure everything was good. We got ziti and meatballs and spaghetti with meat sauce..both were excellent. Bread and garlic knots the best around. Definitely recommend..

Our party of 15 all had something different and everything was delicious! Very generous portions and the garlic knots were great! Danielle was our server and she was awesome! Will definitely return on our next trip to Surfside Beach.

Awesome experience! The service and food was phenomenal. Kristy our server was top notch. Sal the owner made us feel like family. Everyone in our party was extremely satisfied with our meals from the appetizer to the desserts. 5 stars plus. Will definitely return.

While visiting the area my sister and I were craving an Italian meal. We went to Valentinos for a late lunch. We happened on their lunch specials. The menu has about 10 items priced at $10.99. That includes bread and salad! The portions are smaller...More
