Valentino's is the spot where you go when the club close at 2 am. They have a variety of food. To me the food is not the best and it's also not the worst. I really do think the food quality has changed over the years. They also have drinks which are pretty good.
While this is a restaurant. I see many more people taking advantage of their carry-out ordering than sitting down, and eating. Even though I've lived in the area a majority of my life I have never seen a full house maybe half-full is the most I've seen it at any time of day. The restaurant itself is nice with a helpful waitstaff. Actually a majority of the time I see the waitstaff just standing around due to lack of dine-in customers. There are two dining rooms and a bar. The interior is nice, but nothing spactacular just clean and serviceable. The food is good, but it's just sub-shop good not restaurant good. The prices seem a little high for subs etc., but after a certain time of morning they are one of the few options this side of town(NE Baltimore). They do a ton of buisness of weekends from the club/bar crowd after 2AM when drunk/tired people look to eat. Not a great value in my opinion, but if you have the munchies at 4 in the morning you'll pay a premium for a good chicken cheesesteak. Might be good for a non first date or taking the kids for some pizza, but you definately won't impress anyone taking them here.
