Our Customers

We love hearing from our customers. Your honest review helps us improve, stay motivated and grow.

Was recommended by a colleague and wasn’t disappointed. Probably the best meal I can remember, absolutely stunning food. Service was brilliant and friendly and the place has a great ambiance. A real treat.

If you’re looking for a restaurant in Cardiff that values its customers then Valentino’s is the place for you. From an extensive menu offering exquisite freshly cooked food, to attentive, friendly, fabulous staff through to an overall wonderful ambience. We had the perfect evening, and as for the sharing dessert platter … scumptious! Kudos all at Valentino’s, can’t wait to visit again soon.
