Crab cakes were excellent - essentially large cakes of pure crab meat - little filler. Another member of the party had the 8 oz filet, which was very good as well. Service was excellent, and overall meal... More

We ordered our meals and the wait staff was good to keep us in rolls and drinks while it was being prepared. The food came out... More

She took our order and the salads arrived, but no bread. We asked if we could have some bread. Needless to... More

Made reservations on Open Table and were seated immediately on a busy Saturday night. Definitely recommend versus waiting. Our server was responsive, attentive, and very personable. Nice selection of dishes. Nice portions and reasonable prices. Nice crowd which is always a good sign. Can't wait to go back!

In a shopping center you will find this small but quaint Italian grill. The food here was above average.

Welcome to Valle Cucina, Delaware's best kept secret for thirty years! Our name suggests Italian, and it is the best around, but we are also known for our seven time "Best of Delaware" award winning 100% jumbo lump crab cakes, seafood dishes and the area's most amazing dry aged steaks. Valle also showcases a 200+ bottle wine list.
Come as your are or formal, everyone feels at home. We take pride in our friendly service.

Located in the Pike Creek Shopping Center, off Limestone Rd. Valle, opened in 1981 as a pizzeria and has become a must try. We are inviting you to experience what many have called their best dining experience.
