We were just visiting Valentines for a coffee which we thoroughly enjoyed as well as the incredible sweet treats but it was all great - staff fantastic, Italian, friendly and welcoming. Only shame was that we couldn't go upstairs for a morning coffee so were left staring at the Putney train bridge!!!! Certainly wouldn't put us off going back -... More

First time eating here, good atmosphere and the food was great ...compliments to the kitchen. But...the seating is upstairs with full length glass windows, and with a lower ceiling and no open windows, it was very hot in the restaurant, at least during our evening. We asked four times for the air conditioning to be turned on with no response... More

Lunch today here was outrageously expensive ! An Italian caprese salad which comprised of 5 slices of tomato & 4 slices of poor quality mozzarella with tiny slices of basil for more than £8.00 was a poor value for money.

Went on a Sunday evening with no particular expectations. Lovely room (maybe recently renovated) with lighting just right, really nice friendly service, and actually really good food. The calamari and arancini starters were both excellent, and the polenta cubes with my boyfriends' main course were definitely a highlight. Some great value wines too. As locals we'll definitely be back soon.

We planned to visit Valentina couple of times and I'm glad we finally did! Very nice space for both: those coming just for a drink and those who love Italian food. Food was delicious. We had mozzarella and pesto bread to start with and then pasta. Good size of portions. We were satisfied after the meal.Nice wine selection, friendly Italian... More

First time trying the Putney location after many years shopping for food at the original Sheen venue. Very convivial for a family Sunday lunch. Good choices for all and at reasonable prices. Can see how they are being successful. We will be returning

We came here for an impromptu dinner on nye and were really pleased they managed to fit us in. The food was excellent, not at all like your traditional Italian restaurant chain. We were given the traditional lentil toast for new year aperitif which was unusual but very tasty. My partner had the diavolo pizza which was a generous fiery... More

Love this place for a take-away coffee or quick delicious snack at the downstairs deli. But can now also recommend dinner upstairs too! Took a bunch of clients there one weekday evening: wanted atmosphere, great food, and speedy service (clients had flown in very early that day and were tired). Delighted to say that Valentina delivered on all fronts, especially... More

Went for a late dinner recently and unfortunately ended up in their loo throwing up their mushroom risotto, it had obviously been made earlier, allowed to stand and then inadequately re-heated. It only took about 4 mouthfuls for a devastating effect. There was no manager around and the wait staff were basically unconcerned, at least they had the decency not... More
