Bright Caffe Valentino, one of a trio of Italian restaurants from Cosimo Tricarico, has all the required classics of Northern Italy (pollo alla Milanese, linguine alla amatriciana), with a notable seafood focus. Think swordfish carpaccio and lemon-marinated shrimp skewers.
i love this place. great food and service. always a fun time. i was there last weekend and we had so much fun. the staff in very friendly and always accommodating. it's a place i've gotta go eat at least once or twice a month. my favorite dish is the gnocchi with shrimp. there homemade gnocchi are the best i've every tried. go check it out!

Caffe Valentino is the Best Italian Restaurant and BYOB in Philly. Not only is the food delicious, it is probably the most authentic Italian cuisine you can find. I highly recommend this place. This food is amazing. The service is attentive, and the restaurant is beautiful. I can't believe it wasn't on Phillymag's Top 50. I guess it's not on the top 50 because it's not fusion italian cuisine. It's just the authentic Italian Cuisine that you can only find here or by getting on a plane to Italy! Posted by Heather: Mar.
