I know the press made this tough on Valoroso but I trust the family and I am a foodie who knows when I have eaten bad or poor quality food and I fully believe everything I have eaten from here has been of impressive quality, amazingly home cooked from their hot food bar, and worthy of more trust than the...

I was always a big fan of Valoroso foods since coming to Kelowna. I thought i'd found a great little Italian market with people who loved food as much as I do. the recent expose on our local television station changed all that. It seems that Valoroso was caught, actually on camera with changing dates on meats and cheeses, pasta... More

I have been a customer of Valoroso for many years. Valoroso has always sold excellent produce to me. Their Burrata and Buffalo Mozzarella is superb as are their sun-dried tomatoes in oil. They have a wide selection of cheeses; meats and olives. I have always been treated very well there. The service is friendly and efficient. It's like a little... More

As a previous customer who has experienced buying food that was suspect, I feel that the reasons for suspect food have come to light. An undercover exposé by an ex-employee that quit showed with a hidden video camera store employees changing best before and expiry dates on various products. Other employees have since come forward to support the claims. The... More

Have been here for years... Great staff, friendly and knowledgeable. Food at deli and lunch counter is superb. People need to stop whining about one staff who changed an expiry Date. When I worked at justice, the guy who created this story was charged! This is a great place, fresh food and super selection.

I was a Valoroso customer. I had purchased some canned foods there previously and thought they tasted tinny but thought it may be because they were imported. I also purchased grated cheese there that was a little off - again thinking it was my own storage methods or the type of cheese that I had purchased. I would occasionally get... More

Terrible service. Food expiry dates are tampered with. Coffee bar is so uncomfortable. Go to Giobean coffee on Water street they have the best espresso's and the BEST attitude. Friendly, warm and appreciates there customers.

This is a deli where you can buy sandwiches and coffee. They have always been a little on the shady side but if you know what to look for and don't buy anything that isn't obviously fresh, then you can find some nice things in there. It's overpriced but they don't have a lot of competition. They are currently suffering... More

I have been a happy customer for the past six years. There is always good service and a high quality of products. As a German I am not very easily pleased but Valoroso has done it! Thank you very much!

Love this place! Such great food and always changing menu you can't come here for lunch too often. Great shop for foodies but it's the lunch that I love and the home made gelato and the coffee... My parents liked the food here better than their trip to Italy! Oh the ricciarelli!
