We discovered Valentino's on our very first trip to Nashville thanks to a suggestion by a hotel valet. Over seven years later and it is still our go to place every time we visit Nash, which is several times a year. The food and atmosphere are amazing and you'll want to plan your visit on a night when they have... More

Our small group decided upon Italian food for a Friday night while visiting in Nashville. How very fortunate we were to get reservations at Valentinos. Grant was a great server, very helpful and a wonderful personality. I am a huge fan of lasagna and I must say this is the best I have ever eaten. The noodles seem to melt... More

Wonderful dining experience. This is a great place for dates or special occasions. It's a cozy, upscale environment but not at all snobby or pretentious. The service was great, the wine selection very good, and the food was excellent. Very old school Italian with creative combinations and great presentation. The bananas foster (made at table side) is a must try.... More

This place was recommended to us by several people. There is a complete lack of really good Italian food in Nashville so we had our expectations high. The staff was friendly and the old house this is located in is charming. I ordered the chicken (gluten free) and my husband had the veal. We didn't have an appetizer at the... More

Love this old style Italian restaurant. Very friendly staff, great service and amazing food. My friend had the lasagna and said it was the best she has ever eaten. The caprese salad was delight, as were the mussels. Love it!

We loved the inside of the restaurant, and they sat us in the basement in the wine cellar area. It is lovely, and you really want to sit downstairs. The service was impecable. We started with the table side Caesar salad, and it was amazing. The rest of the food was so-so. I had the veal saltimbocca which was nothing... More

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. We had not been here in a long time but were quickly reminded what a first class experience it is. Quiet, comfortable seating suitable for anyone. Classic traditional decor, well lit but very romantic. Service is quick and very attentive but not overbearing. Excellent cocktail menu and wine list. The food is outstanding!... More

We had a large party for a business dinner. Great food and service. But the ambience was the highlight - very cool. It's like you're in an old house with a large room of well spaced tables. Authentically Italian vibe. I felt like I was in a movie. Don't let the exterior fool you. This place is fantastic.
