My husband brought me here for an anniversary, and although I had high hopes, I was so underwhelmed and disappointed with my meal. I ordered the classic Veal Ossobuco With Risotto Milanese. Nothing was seasoned properly. Perhaps it was an off night, but the prices are too high for off nights.

Excellent italian ... taste is superb ... little "plates" but every bite a dream.

For Italian food (*not* Pasta and pizza), this is as good as it gets. The only way to improve on Valentino is to go to Florence (Italy) and eat at the Enoteca Pinchiorri, which will cost you upwards of $150/person. Mushroom tortino is simply heaven. Best osso bucco I've ever tasted. Hell, the "amuse bouche" they serve before whatever you ordered is almost worth the price of the meal.

Valentino has amazing food and it is a very quiet, intimate setting. A great place to have a dinner where you need to actually hear the person talking to you!

After giving this place numerous chances, I now feel safe to say it is SO overrated. Last time I was there, I sat at a table next to several celebrities and thought "what do they like about this place?". The food is mediocre and bland. I think it's all hype because a few undiscriminating stars like it.
