Valerio’s is the kind of small, intimate restaurant that easily becomes your go-to place for a romantic night out. The northern Italian menu offers no big surprises — just quality food at reasonable prices that don’t prevent this place from being a regular hangout. Prosciutto, caprese, ravioli, gnocchi, spaghetti with tomato sauce — it’s what you expect and what you want at a Little Italy destination. Chicken, steak and veal dishes are simply prepared with herbs, sauces, and virgin olive oil — and no unsettling culinary tricks. The celebrated tiramisu is a perfect finisher.
