The Best Italian Restaurant

I just bought a place a couple blocks from Caffe Valentino. When I moved in, I thought, great, when I'm hungry and have no food in the house, I only have to walk a couple blocks. My first weekend in the neighborhood, my friends and I decided to try it out, because none of us had ever been there. When we got there the place was pretty busy, (which surprised me because I hadn't heard of it until I moved up the street).

Once we sat down, we were eying up the tables around us to see what they were eating. Everything looked and smelled great. We all got different stuff, and loved everything. I got Gnocchi with Red Sauce. It was clearly homemade and light. Probably the best I've ever had, and I love gnoochi. My other friend got the pasta special, which was Black Fettucini with Shrimp in a spicy red sauce. He said it was great. For dessert we had Tiramisu, also excellent. The service was friendly and accommodating. Any foodies who that haven't found this place yet, should go check it out.



Beautiful Valentine's Day

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Dinner and had an absolutely great time! The Valentine's menu was delicious, the service was great, and the complimentary lemoncello and chocolatecello (sp?) were fabulous! If you haven't been here yet, you must go try it out.



You better think twice....

A group of my friends get together for dinner a few times a year. In December of 2009, we chose Caffe Valentino. It will be the last time we dine there. The caesar salad was small and bland. I had to put salt on it (I never use salt). The tomatoes on the tomato/mozzarella appetizer were not ripe and hard as a rock. My chicken marsala sauce had no flavor at all and hardly any mushrooms. Everyone was disappointed. It is a BYOB and we brought wine with us. We all had an appetizer and entree (no dessert), most prices low to mid. We ended up paying $80.00 per couple. RIP-OFF !!!!!!!



Great BYOB

I just went there last weekend for the first time, and this place is great! It's beautiful, the food is delicious, and the service is very attentive. I have to say, I was shocked at how good the service was, because they were really busy. We lucked out and only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, even though we didn't have a reservation. I highly recommend this place, and next time I'll make a reservation for the weekend!
