A Follow Up to my Previous Review
In my previous review, I gave Valentino's a well deserved 5 Star review based on their excellent pizza, accompaniments and the fact they have live music several nights a week. What we never had were any of their other dishes. We remedied that last night....And once again, Valentino's shone brightly! Last year we were in Italy on our ... read more

Probably some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had. Kim the waitress was amazing and always a great sign when the owner is out on the floor interacting with patrons. This is a true sign of someone who cares about their establishment. If you’re in the MB area and have a hankering for some Italian food, this is 100% worth a stop.
