Homemade pastas & a salad bar are the draws at this family-run Italian place with old-time appeal.- Google
"I must say, the food is simply delicious and the service is fantastic."
"Due to being a vegetarian the salad bar is a plus."

I went to Villa Valenti for the first time Sunday night and I loved it! Their Chicken Parm is to die for! Not to mention, the portions are quite decent. I had the fried calamari as my appetizer which was also delicious. The service was friendly and fast. Definitely coming back for some more delicious Italian cuisine.

The Villa Valenti is my favorite restaurant in the capital district. I've been dining there with my family and friends for as long as I can remember. Their meals are always outstanding as usual and the service is fabulous. I love all their dishes but my favorite would be any one of their pasta's. Even though it was very busy, all the waitresses calmly took their time to sing happy birthday to me and served me a delicious desert. I love it their so much I was there Friday and Sunday. Once with my boyfriend and last night with my family. On the first night with my boyfriend we split the tiramisu which was out of this world!!!! I was there last night for a surprise birthday dinner. I am not big on surprises but I had the best time. And for the family dinner we had the chocolate Kahlua layered cake which was to die for. Due to being a vegetarian the salad bar is a plus. Their vegetables are so fresh it seem as they were just picked out of the garden. In addition, the selection of dressings are impeccable. I have never had a problem at The Villa other than the portions being so large that I always leave with a doggy bag and a full stomach! I promise that once you dine there you will definitely want to experience it all over again. I give them 10 thumbs up!

Fantastic food. Very friendly waitress. Food arrived 15 minutes after we placed our order. By far my favorite restaurant. The portion was great too. I saved the left over's for lunch the next day! Fantastic!!!! Great pricing. Excellent variety. Recommended to all of my family and friends.

Made reservations for 7pm on new years eve 2012. Was made to stand for an hour in an over crowded bar where everyone else had 7pm reservations as well and were none too happy. Finally seated at a table with not one but 2 ac vents running at full blast right under us. Ordered our food about 10 min later. Waiter brought out bread and dip and we didn't see him again until complaining around 9pm. Miraculously the food came out right after complaining, manager came over to find out what the problem was but didn't seem to really care, instead moving to the next table to see how they were. Needless to say our bill was comped but we walked out with 1 dinner and no where else to eat at 930pm! Overheard another couple leaving, saying they would never go there again after giving it a second chance. No 2nd chances here...public be warned.

This is by far my favorite restaurant in the history of restaurants. I must say, the food is simply delicious and the service is fantastic. Being the owner and manager's daughter, you'd think I'd get tired of eating there; although after years and years of being around this place, never have I once got tired of the food or atmosphere. The chef's put in 110% effort in making and preparing each and every dish. The service is unbeatable, the food is top notch, and the portions are beyond belief! Don't get me wrong, I've been to other places and I must say you haven't had Italian-American food if you haven't been to the Villa. Choose villa (: I promise you won't regret it.

have been dining at The Villa Valenti for well over 20 years and they are by far my favorite restaurant in the area . My whole family loves to go there as they offer something for everyone for my children to my parents ...We love all their dishes so I cant pick just one ...The salad bar is outstanding and the deserts are to die for ...Id also like to mention that every time we go their they are always busy and staff still treats us if we are her only table ..The drinks are also delicious ...I really cant say enough except you have to try them just once and you will be a life long customer as we are . Overall, the food is excellent from start to finish. The service there is very good. The servers take care of our needs by checking up on us often, refilling the glasses with ice water, bringing food out in a timely manner, offering fresh ground pepper & grated cheese on the food, clearing used dishes between courses, and brushing off the table cloth. I Thank you Villa Valenti and will definitely see you soon !!!

The worst dining experience ever!!!! Went their NYE 2012. We made 7PM reservations for a party of 6. Waited over an hour to be seated, which was somewhat understandable on NYE. Once we were finally seated it took over 45 minutes for a member of wait staff to acknowledge our table. And that was only because someone in our party flagged her down. We were not supposed to be her table but she took us anyways. So it is now 8:45PM and we are just ordering...9:15PM, 9:30PM, 9:45PM...still waiting. 10:00PM yup still waiting...two members of our party just leave they couldn't wait any longer as they had another commitment. 10:15PM finally our waitress on the verge of tears brings our food. The food...Less than stellar. Actually sub pare to be honest. Parts were cold, parts were hot. Not the quality we had gotten many times in the past. Needless to say even though they comped part of the meal and gave us a couple of gift cards we will NEVER go back. And I would not recommend going there to anyone else.
