Service and atmosphere is very relaxed, but also good and efficient. Food is excellent. It is nice to find a family run, authentic Italian restaurant. Can certainly recommend the mussels and sea bass. Will definitely visit again when next in Bournemouth.

An authentic bustling Italian made memorable by the staff. Our hen Kayleigh really was made to feel special by the staff, especially 'Tatiano'. The food and wine was lovely. Despite the restaurant seeming fully booked, we were able to relax, take our time and enjoy the atmosphere.

Top notch food, drinks and fantastic staff made this restaurant a memorable dining experience and one that all 6 of use agreed we would visit again if ever in the area.

We visit valentiono at least 3 to 4 times a month, what brings us back is there fresh home cooked food, and all the friendly staff, we are so well looked after, and my children really look forward to going every time, my children adore there olives and always want the fresh pasta, if you want to go somewhere which is very family friendily then look no further.

We emailed to reserve a table and were told they were full, but to ring for a cancellation. Fortunately my wife did. The owner told us it would be a squeeze but he could book us in for 7 pm.
The whole experience was great. The service by Joseph and his large staff was excellent. Friendly, conversational and humorous despite the pressure from a very busy restaurant. The food was excellent and delivered quickly. My wife had spaghetti carbonara which was requested as it wad not on the menu. I had Squid a la Romana and Penne Sicilia. Tasty, satisfying, well presented. Thankyou Joseph. Your food and welcoming friendly efficient staff deserve nothing but praise. Well done and thank you.
