Our Story

Valentino’s cuisine borrows from every region of Italy along with a little influence from their Northern New Jersey roots. Opening for business in July of 2006, the Valentino family wanted to create a casual, family-friendly & energetic restaurant that served what they coin “Grandma’s Italian Food”. Valentino’s is committed to cooking with fresh ingredients & tries to source local ingredients when possible. All of the food is truly cooked to order & prepared in a way our grandparents & ancestors would be proud.
