My dream place. Family from Italia, closest I came to original Italian.
Best Garlic Rolls in The Area.
Me and my girlfriend went to villa valenti last saterday. After being seated we were greated by our waitress with the most delicious bread sticks i may of ever eaten.
WHen dinner came i was almost shocked at how much food was on my plate. I got the chicken sorrento which i ate for 2 days after, and my girlfriend got the chicken crab and lobster guliana which i can only describe as delicious. After eating only about a third of our food because we wanted to save room for desert, we got a lemon sorbet that came in a reall Lemon!. I was very happy with the service as well as the food, and they will without a doubt see me there again.
Value and Family!. Good Italian at a great price. I always have more for the next day! I love their Eggplant Rollatini!! Wow! The best!
Hicks in smallbany lucky here! You are hicks,yes you are, embrace that:0
There are so many variables N.Y. city has over you. One is food. We know good food and are light years ahead of anything up there. You people think Olive garden,Macaroni Grill,Fridays are good, please.
Culture and education needed badly.
Tried many up there and only a couple I like. depending on cuisine and decor,etc. My two favorites are Cafe Capricio and Villa Valenti. They are very different but the same in the ingredient area. They offer the best Albany has to offer. Been to your more expensive(though Capricio up there) but none our better than these two. Luckily your population is small , so you do not need more than two places I guess:)
Best Italian Food. I heard great things about the Villa Valenti Restaurant. So my family and I went to the Villa last week. It was truly a wonderful time. We had a drink at the bar and had quite a few laughs with the bartenders. Service was quick. Then we were escorted to our table by a very hospitable hostess. We had quite a large party so we had a few waitresses waiting on us. And what friendly waitresses may I say. They were friendly, service was excellent and I just cannot say enough about the food. Portions were large, the sauce is truly homemade and exceptional. All the dishes we ordered, from steaks to Sorrentos, chicken dishes and veal dishes were delicious. We were made to feel at home and the food was more than we expected. The owner came to our table and greeted us which is something not seen very often. He was very gracious and we enjoyed him coming and chatting with us. From beginning to end, I would say we had a very enjoyable evening and will definitely be back (bringing friends with us also). Great job and keep up the good work!
Best Italian Food. My boyfriend and I went to the Villa Valenti Restaurant last week to celebrate our anniversay. We both had a wonderful time. Both our meals were absolutely delicious. I had the Seafood Pescatore which was out of this world. My boyfriend had the Ciopino which he raved about for days. Hats off to the Chef!!! Both seafood dishes were excellent. Our waitress was friendly and we just loved the atmosphere. Looking forward to our next visit to the Villa!
Best Italian Restaurant in Town. I went to the Villa Valenti Restaurant for the first time last night. I was highly impressed. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were huge. I was nicely greeted by the hostess. My waitress was quite friendly and made me feel quite welcome. She explained the specials to me and when I asked a few questions about the menu she was quite knowledgeable. She recommended a few choices and suggested the New York Strip Steak (I was in the mood for a steak). It was probably one of the best steaks I ever had. The salad bar was quite impressive also. I had to try the homemade bannana cream pie. That was to die for! All in all I had a wonderful time. I will definitely be back and bring some friends with me. Keep up the good work!
Food is me.
I am a food lover. Italian food is my problem. Loving something too much can be just as bad as not enough. I miss Italy!
In the Albany area the Villa Valenti has well balanced flavors and ingredients that I know are the best available for this country. However, if you go to Italy you will understand that the restaurant and farm are one. Farms are amazing there. They produce for taste and not profit.
Yes I will settle for the Villa Valenti while in business in Albany, tried most you have to offer. They just do not have the farms here in the US that produce properly.
Great food and customer service. I went to Villa Valenti Restaurant for the first time this past weekend with a group of friends. The food was absolutely terrific! I had the Chicken Sorrento which was phenomenal and the portion was huge! Another person had the prime rib which was definitely a king size cut while yet another had a seafood dish that they raved about. The wait staff was extremely attentive and very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed but fun at the same time. We had a great time and all of us would highly recommend this restaurant. It is only 15 minutes outside of Albany and well worth the trip! We will definitely be back!
Very average place, decent value.. I must say I head that Villa does have quite large portions and they sure do. I did take a lot home. I also heard that it is a great value and that I don't quite agree with. Value to me is kid of like a math problem... Quality x quantity / price = value. Quantity is very large as I said but the price while not terribly expensive is not cheap considering that you are just getting what is more or less plain old standard italian cuisine. Villa was okay. Didn't wow me.
