Valentino’s Italian Cafe

Zero ambience and a shallow wine list do not detract from seriously delicious Italian food. The flavors are bright and fresh, despite the American penchant for lots o’ cheese. The veal piccata proves as tasty as any Little Italy offering on either coast; the eggplant parmigiana is a luscious casserole of slightly breaded vegetables layered with mozzarella and bright marinara; manicotti comes stuffed with fluffy ricotta flecked with herbs. Underscoring the kitchen’s seriousness, pasta is made in house, and seafood is well cooked and thoughtfully sauced. The New York–style pizzas are darn good too. (5/12)
