  • We should have stayed home and had better leftovers for dinner. After dinner I asked the owners about my meal and they fessed up that the mussels were frozen and the pasta from a box. The metallic tasting sauce came from a can. Shall not return.

  • Order: mussels, spaghetti, garlic bread

  • We were being served by a female in her late 50s who talks as though she has a tongue stud.
    Doesn't know the first thing about being a waitress.
    Left us sitting for a long time without menus, drinks she just disapeered and the place wasn't even busy.
    When she finally started to serve us there was an undertone of rudeness or she didn't want to be there that night and she is there every night sadly.
    The food was good but her service really ruined the experience. Get her gone!!

  • Order: veal parm

  • This restaurant has certainly declined since we were last there. The Valley used to be an upscale fine dining establishment but not anymore. Service was fine but the food was mediocre. Our meal was not worth the $100+ we dropped that evening. There was no air conditioning in place which made our experience uncomfortable as well.

  • Order: Lasagne, Eggplant Parmesan, Garlic Bread, Salad, Martini

  • The owner Rick as the best wine selection to go with his food. He really knows his wine.
    He's obviously traveled to pick up this knowledge.

  • Order: Various apps, Entrees and Desserts Everyone had a fork in everyone elses.

  • Waited in the front door for ten minutes before someone acknowledged us - gave us a chance to get acquainted with all the spiders living in the webs in the front entrance.

    Seriously, the decor, service and food reminded us of restaurants we would go to after high school prom in the 1970's - please update this establishment!!

    Mediocre food and very expensive.

    Will defininately not visit again!!

  • Order: Chicken parmeasan Pasta alfredo salad

  • By far, the best lasagna I have ever tasted -- as compared to some of the other italian restaurants in St.Catharines. The host and waiters/waitresses were extremely good-natured, attentive and accomodating. Will definitely be back to have more of that award-winning lasagna! Also, the prices were quite reasonable.

  • Order: Appetizer: Caesar Salad Entree: Veal and also tried the Lasagna Dessert: N/A

  • Hadn't been to the Valley in years! Looked exactly the same - now best described as '70s Italian-American (North) chic. Service was great, food tastes fresh but not inspired. Prices very reasonable. Interesting wine list that should identify the vintage on offer. A regular crowd, seated at tables closest to the bar, were clearly enjoying themselves.

  • Staff were pleasant and competent. Wife's order was very obviously burned, but was still sent out from the kitchen. Wife had to change order to something quickly prepared so she could eat with the rest of the group. Waiter offered free desserts as compensation. Food was ok, but not awe inspiring. Antipasto was very bland.
