Stats:
  • 38 dishes entered by diners at Valentino
Tips:
  • The dozen Italian and West Coast wines on the bar list are select but not inexpensive--the average glass is about $17. Specialty cocktails include the Limoncello Drop and the Bourbon 1972, made with homemade vanilla fig puree.
  • The knowledgeable bartender listens to what guests like and offers excellent suggestions. Besides glass or bottle options, guests may also order a "quartino," ideal for two.
  • Patrons may also order off the regular dinner menu and the enormous tome of the regular wine list.
  • Selvaggio's wine cellar is one of the best in L.A., with over 2,500 selections, ranging from reasonable to outrageous. Rare Italian vintages are a specialty, and wine pairings are offered with meals.
  • Stairs climb above the ivied flagstone entrance to a secret green, twinkling little patio--romantic for two, intimate for four, but squeezably manageable for even 10. Heat lamps provided.
