I have been going to this restaurant since I was a baby 28 years and it has never been better. The fish dishes are the best I have had ( better than a French port) the staff are friendly and polite but the food speaks for itself. The puddings are made by the Italian owner personally love the banoffee pie... More

I can't big this place up enough!! Most authentic and best tasting Italian in Ripon without a doubt. But to top it off, they are the most family friendly place too. Fantastic staff who bend over backwards to make you feel welcome. We will always keep coming back!

A group of us ate here. As there was a four year old in our party we arrived at 5.30pm. This is obviously the time for those with children as there were lots of children there. Our meal was served by an extremely friendly Italian gentleman who was very good with the four year old in our party. I will... More

Walked in off the street heading for a different restaurant. Great atmosphere, nice service and the house red was most acceptable. The highlight of my meal was watching desserts being prepared for two kids with their eyes getting bigger by the moment. The pizza hit the spot. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure how long I have been going to Valentinos but it's at least 30 years, and it's now a family favourite and the place we always take friends and staff for a night out. Guaranteed friendly service, fabulous food and great atmosphere. The pizzas are the best!

A friend and I regularly eat out in Ripon on Wednesday evening - usually in Valentino's, a friendly, family-run business with great Italian food and beautiful thin-crust pizzas. But I digress: we didn't have pizza tonight; we arrived to find that the lobster festival had just started - and who can resist Lobster Thermidor and prosecco - certainly not us!... More
