My husband and I haven't been to Valente's since we were in high school (now in our late 40s). I wish I had read the reviews before we went. Overall it was terrible. The waitress was very nice and attentive, but it was less than average italian. We opted to try the recommended Lobster and Crab Mac 'n Cheese. The appetizer portion was $12.95 and only had two slivers of lobster and no crab to be seen. The waitress said she would tell the cook since he is still perfecting the recipe. We paid $13 for a small bowl of pasta. Big deal that she told the cook, he should have sent out some seafood! A competent chef would have seen the problem before he sent it out. The sauce on my husband's dinner was just okay and my steamed clams were soggy and tasted boiled, not steamed. My husband and I are usually pretty easy to please, but SAVE YOUR MONEY on this place.
I brought my family out to dinner at Valente's as a nice change of pace for us. However, my daughter ordered a hamburger off the children's menu and got a cheeseburger, not a huge deal but when she peeled off the cheese the hamburger that she found underneath was charred to the point that i couldn't even cut it with a knife. My friend who went with us ordered a cheeseburger cooked well, it was red on the inside while charred on the outside. The waitress only came to our table once, even after asking if we needed ketchup failed to bring it to our table. Also, we were not given napkins, which are generally helpful with 2 small children, even after asking for them. Overall it was a horrible experience and I don't think that I will ever bring my family back to Valente's.
There food is pretty good, but there online menu is less than they charge. I ordered steak and pork chops, it should have come to $ 31.00 but when the guy got here the bill was $38.98, so beware of what you are charged.
I love this restaurant, but have never set foot in the place.
Once or twice a week, we order takeout from Valente's and we love their food.
The wings are the best in the city and the potato skins are amazing! I also highly recommend these guys for their quick delivery service.
