“Excelent food, oustanding staff”
Review of Valentino's

Valentino's
Ranked #113 of 943 Restaurants in York
Certificate of Excellence
Description: At Valentino's we believe in "CIBO PER L'ANIMA" ("FOOD FOR THE SOUL"). The journey begins with an array of delectable starters (antipasti), followed by desirable and sumptous chicken, fish and meat dishes. And of course not forgetting to capture the true essence of Italy with our selection of vibrant pastas and divine pizzas. Our desserts are also made with the same passion thus ensuring you finish off your meal in true STILE ITALIANO (ITALIAN STYLE).

Last Sunday I went with my family to Valentino´s restaurant for the first time after the long lockdown. We really enjoyed it. We received an outstanding service from the waiters. They are very attentive to all details, very kind and polite. They can be internment sometimes. We love when Franco sings in Italian. We feel like we are in Italy!
They had Clear screens to protect customers from Covid and all staff were wearing appropriate face masks.
The food...yam yamii!! Absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The portions were, OMG! massive! We ordered 1 garlic bread with tomato and one calamari as a starter, both delicious, the dought of the garlic bread was thin, crispy and light, we ordered a second one :P. I had an outstanding lobster ravioli, and my husband had sirloin steak medium with veggies and chips. The steak was lovely, cooked as requested, and could taste the good quality of the meat. My daughter had spaghetti Pomodoro and chicken which she loved but did not finish, she had loads of garlic bread. Then for dessert, we had a spectacular cassata siciliana, hard to find around here, We were amazed. And a chocolate fudge with ice cream. We stayed even if we finished eating, It was a very nice atmosphere made from the music, the lovely smell from the kitchen, the staff, and also we felt safe from Covid, we just felt like home. To end we had coffee and two limoncellos to help with digestion :P.

Food was okay but small portions . Ordered seafood tagliatelle- it was quite bland with some shelled seafood on and portion size was small for a main meal

A nice authentic Italian restaurant, offering good surroundings and reassuring covid precautions.
The staff are welcoming and sometimes entertaining, but it is the food that really matters, and on that score we were most pleased.
Good portions, my caprese starter put an end to any ideas I might have had of a dessert! My wife made a good choice with the sea bass, if we return that will my choice too. The menu is extensive and the house wine pleasant enough. I have no reservations in recommending this lovely restaurant.

Whoa, Valentino’s was extremely noisy. The staff were very crude and had no respect for the clientele whatsoever. They had the air of being above the mere English patronage. The COVID regs were not observed at all even though they looked like they were. Staff were belligerent, masks down by their chins, talking and shouting loudly to other members of staff. Guffawing. The food was slapped down it was stale, it was frozen and it was over cooked. The worst Italian food I have ever experienced by the very worst Italian staff in the very worst Italian restaurant I have ever been in. Disgusting experience and one that is quite laughable to say the least.

Came here with friends great welcome and very friendly staff, sat upstairs and had really nice meals. All trying different meals from the pasta ravioli with spinach and cheese to the lasagna.
