Reasonably priced food, limited but decent wine choices, good service.

The octopus appetizer was nice, the panzanella ok. Our pasta with a bolognese sauce was good, as was the rabbit.

This is our neighborhood Italian restaurant! Always a great experience - the lasagna, on Tuesday is a favorite. try the Spaghettini or the Pappardelle. Nice wine list and the service is always excellent!

Valenza is very affordable. We had eaten at their sister restaurant, Haven a few weeks ago and were itching to try Valenza at the other end of the building. Good call. You could tell that many of the patrons were locals and knew the staff by name. Lively restaurant that can be a bit loud. Food was great. We both started with a mista salad, which was excellent. I had the pappardelle and my wife had the penne and we swapped plates back and forth. We will go back for sure.

Brookhaven has been making a huge transformation in recent years and that includes the restaurant scene. Valenza is one of the finest Brookhaven restaurants I've been to. As the name indicates, it's Italian. For starters, the mussels were wonderful and served with toasted rustic bread for dipping. Truly, that would be an adequate dinner and satisfying one. Following that I had butternut squash ravioli. Loved it! They were featuring rabbit dishes, of all things. My husband said his was a very nice meal. The service was impeccable. Although we did not do this, allegedly you can let you dog wait for you in a "holding area" just outside the restaurant. The only negative is that the restaurant seemed too crowded. Tables were too close together.

We sat outside which was very pleasant, as it seemed quite noisy inside. There was live music which was great. The food was delicious. We had for apps frito misto, misto salad and meatballs. All were excellent. For entree we had chicken, bistecca and saltimbocca again all were excellent. The little potatoes were addictive. We didn't make dessert as we were all replete.
