We have eaten at Vallini's several times now. It has been excellent every time. The prices are very good and the quality of food and service are top notch. Highly recommended

There were 4 in our party and we all ordered something different. No food envy as every dish was amazing! We all shared a little with each other and just loved it. Our waitress was attentive but not over bearing. Thanks again for a delightful time!

We all four had a pasta dish—lasagna, ziti and lobster raviolis. The were all wonderful! It was a birthday celebration and the birthday girl had the day’s special cake. It looked quite good.

Service was terrible. We were told bread did not come with the meal. We had to ask another waiter to bring more water, and the food for the quality was very overpriced. My pasta was hard and not even hot...but the server couldn't be found to have it reheated. I brought my brother, who never goes out with us, and his chicken parm was a patty, NOT real chicken. For $26.00 that is disgraceful. We will never patronize this restaurant again and I'm so sorry that I wasted $100.00 hard earned on a poor quality meal!!!

The Brussels sprout and the Calamari appetizers were the highlights. My wife enjoyed her lobster ravioli. I thought my seafood with pasta in red sauce was good, not great. It benefitted from grated Parmesan, but that came late (they were very busy). The wait staff was pleasant and professional, but a little slow - perhaps they were understaffed. Prices were fantastic. Portion size was perfect

Dinner at Vallini was very good. Love that is BYOB. Our server was very attentive. We were a party of 8 and we were able to hear everyone at the table which is sometimes difficult with a larger party.

So so
Last 2 times we were here it was better quality food. Maybe they just had a bad night. We will try again but not too soon in the near future.

Good meal. My only complaint is that instead of Shrimp Alfredo, I asked for it without the cream. They have a shrimp appetizer with a similar garlic sauce or they could have just tossed in olive oil. The server came back and said they were too busy to make such a request. It wasn’t that difficult of a request. I happen to be a bit lactose intolerant. I ordered something else that was fine but was quite disappointed on how they handled the situation.

Not at this time. Have been to Vallini many times and this experience was by far the worst. We arrived on time for our reservation and had to wait to be seated while other patrons walked in and were seated right away. First we were told our table was being cleared then after about 5 minutes we were told they could seat us at a different table or wait for the table that was bring “cleared” I asked how long it would take and was told about 10 minutes they were finishing up coffee. Obviously I choose the other table. It took forever for our food to come out and when it did, it was cold as it had obviously been sitting under the lamps for quite some time. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement and it’ll be a while before we are back again

We met friends for dinner. It was wonderful spending time them and our waiter provided excellent service. I wish I remembered his name in order to acknowledge him in this review. When we arrived, I didn’t care for our seating and when asked to be seated at a different table they were reserved for others. Our table was facing a 3/4 wall closest to the door. It was a bit drafty and my husband and I faced a wall of patrons’ coats. My husband and I were not impressed with our meal selection either. The tagliatelle was over cooked and the sauce was too acidic for my liking. Also it was supposed to have mussels, shrimp and crab. I think there were three shrimp and I could not find any crab. My husband had the ribeye. He said it was just ok. The tiramisu was excellent. I wish the meal was comparable to the dessert. For those reasons, I don’t believe we will be returning.

This was our second trip to Vallini and we were just as happy this time as last. This little gem has the right mix of fine dining and homemade so that you feel like you are getting the best of both worlds. The salads and apps were just the right size and very tasty. All of our entrees were hot and the homemade pasta was to die for! I usually am a red sauce lover but this time went with the Alfredo and shrimp special and am glad I did. Just the right amount of sauce and perfectly cooked shrimp...oh yes! We will be back for sure.

Being there on a Sunday evening, it was disappointing to hear how many items were not available or in limited supply. The food we did order was very good and well prepared. Service was very attentive. It would just be nice to have had a full menu to choose from. Thank you.

Waited for 15 minutes for waitress to take order when there were only 2 other tables with people. She was not attentive at all. Cheese plate had no crackers. Chicken Parm was burnt. Ziti portion was small. Overall prices high. I hate to give a local business a bad review, but they need to make some serious improvements. My family and I won’t be returning!

The food at Vallini is okay. They served dinner rolls sprinkled with what I assume is garlic powder but I didn't want to waste the calories to find out! Our server was pleasant. Probably the best thing about the restaurant was the wine that I brought.

There's a lot of potential in this restaurant but still needs some work. The chowder was delicious but served with a teaspoon. The Caesar salad was tasteless. The entrees we're good.
