Brilliant service, amazing food, lovely restaurant with staff who are very knowledgable about the food and wine. Would highly recommend a visit. Worth going for the early bird menu as they will accommodate from main and specials menu.
Great food, friendly staff, I would highly recommend a visit especially on a lunch time, I use this venue as a great place to entertain clients and friends, nothing is ever too much trouble.
Excellent Puglian cuisine, with excellent service by an Italian waitress. Good ambience in the restaurant, with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Dishes on the daily "specials" board were very good. Good value for money.
ALWAYS EXCELLENT QUALITY FOOD, SERVICE AT REASONABLE PRICES. TASTED HOME-MADE TIRAMISU ON SUNDAY AND IT WAS "TO DIE FOR". SUPERB PULLED PORK MELTED IN YOUR MOUTH, WITH CRISPY CRACKILING. LESS THAN £40 FOR 2. WHAT'S THERE NOT TO LIKE!
Another lovely evening at Valentino. Recommended to have Sirloin and none of us were disappointed. Always a nice atmosphere even though it was reasonably quiet. Also able to take our time and ordered each course individually so we were in control of when our food came out. Thanks Valentino. See you again next time. Highly recommended.
The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming; the food was excellent,and to have a jug of fresh water placed on the table before we had ordered was a very nice touch that was much appreciated. The special Sunday Lunch menu was just right for our needs. Our grandchildren (ages 7 and 9) were made welcome and the requirement to cater for "dairy free" for one of them was made easy by the choices available on the menu. A great experience that will definitely be repeated.
How great it is to visit an Italian resturant that is what is says it is. Very well cooked food and a delight to be there with wonderful service. Recommend it. Just wish I live nearby. We visited before going to a concert in Bristol one evening. Just wish we had longer and lived closer.
Very friendly attentive service. Made to feel very welcome. Nice to have chef come out and discuss the menu on the specials board. The only issue we had was we were unaware that they added a 20% service on the bill as we were 6 people in the party.
Excellent. Not overly busy but good atmosphere, Attentive service. Food excellent. Sat in bar area and had a drink and placed our order then food was ready moved to restaurant area.
Very friendly. Food lovely. Had to remind waiting staff a few times about a couple of things though. Very loud and struggled to hear conversation with my partner a few times, but the place definitely had atmosphere.
A lovely friendly neighbourhood restaurant. The food was excellent and my wife and I both enjoyed our classic Italian dishes, the sea bass was delightful and the pork was delicious. I would happily recommend.
From start to finish everything was wonderful. Great place with lovely staff, who selected a great wine when our first choice was sold out. Look forward to returning.
A great restaurant - good food, friendly and helpful staff - a nice ambiance and easy to park. Good choice and great specials - highly recommended
This was an excellent experience as ever at my most local Italian restaurant. Friendly and efficient service and lovely meals at a reasonable price. Thank you!
Great food, nice atmosphere. We had a lovely romantic meal. Would have been 6 but they were understaffed at the time and the menus were very old and needed replacing.
the staff were very friendly and efficient. the restaurant itself is very nicely set out and relaxing. the food was good with a varied menu.
Generally good. There was a large party in, and that seemed to slow the service down a little, but the food was very tasty and well presented.
Service was slow Took ages to ask what we wanted to drink No cocktails as Barman didn't turn up No atmosphere We thought it was quite expensive for the food we had in comparison to other Italian restaurants We wouldn't rush to return
