Valentino Pizzeria Trattoria is all about great food, family and tradition. Its authentic cuisine borrows from every region of Italy along with a little influence from our Northern New Jersey roots. Valentino’s is committed to cooking with only the freshest ingredients available and try to source local ingredients when possible. All of the food is homemade and cooked to order! We try to prepare every dish in a way our grandparents and ancestors would be proud. Valentino’s entire menu is available for Dine-In, Take-Out, Delivery and Catering.
Valentino Pizzeria Trattoria opened for business July 5, 2006. Owner’s Michael Valentino Sr. and Jr. wanted to create a casual, family friendly and energetic restaurant that served what they coin “Grandma’s Italian Food”. Valentino brings Nona’s kitchen to the heart of Sarasota, Florida. Simple, no fuss, made from scratch Italian food just the way Nona would want it.
“Valentino’s Pizzeria, is one of the best pizza places in Sarasota. We buy pizza from them often and the food is always top quality and always cooked right. I am originally from NY and sorry folks, but NY pizza is the best on the planet, however, Valentino’s reminds me of my home town. Great job guys!” – Steven Jorgensen
“Excellent food every time we go! Usually quick to be seated and good service. Wine selection is just right and gluten free options are quite tasteful. They also deliver! Will even customize your order. Love both locations and atmosphere.” – Snappy Shopper B.
“We had a wonderful dinner here with great food and service. The bread was delicious–we found out that it comes from NJ and is just cooked in FL. We started with bruschetta and the Tony salad–both were very good. We split the Margarita pizza, tortellini di Pasquale and the bambino bow tie pasta with grilled chicken. Everything was amazing. Being Italians from NJ we are always a bit apprehensive about eating Italian outside of the NY/NJ area but this place rivals some of our favorite places at home. Would definitely return!” – Christine G.
