Ristorante Da Valentino is an Italian restaurant in Singapore managed by Chef Valentino and his family, together with a team of dedicated staff. Started in July 2005 and located in a residential area along Rifle Range Road, the Restaurant relocated to its current location, The Grandstand, in July 2012.
Started by Valentino and his wife, Patricia in July 2005, Ristorante Da Valentino was a 45-seater family-managed Italian restaurant that was furbished very much like an Italian home with a relaxing and cosy ambience as well as serving Italian cuisine with his mother and sister, Perla, working in the kitchen and his brother-in-law, Alberto, managing the dining area.
Having relocated to its current location, Ristorante Da Valentino is now a 134-seater restaurant with 3 private rooms, 2 semi-private rooms, 5 cozy 'mini caves' that can seat up to 4 people and an al fresco area.
Despite the larger capacity, Ristorante Da Valentino manages to maintain its Italian ambience and continues to take pride in serving classic Italian food with Chef Valentino's touch and creativity. The restaurant also serves seasonal dishes just like restaurants in Italy.
Valentino would import seasonal items directly from Italy, usually in small quantity, and serve it the day that it arrives in Singapore so that customers could enjoy the freshness of the seasonal dishes.
