We hope that the information below will help provide some answers to the questions you may have.
What is Valente's Cucina?
Born out of the Best of Philly award-winning Valente’s Italian Specialties, Valente’s Cucina is a boutique, modern Italian restaurant inspired by the cuisine of Abruzzo with an eclectic, European touch.
Valente’s is located in the center of the piazza-esque Kings Court, which provides quiet outdoor dining, away from the traffic and noise of Kings Highway.
The restaurant has three dining areas: an intimate dining room, the Chef’s Table high-tops in the kitchen, and seasonal courtyard seating.
Due to the size of our dining room, all parties of six or more are seating at our Chef’s Tables or in the courtyard.
Can I order takeout?
Valente’s offers takeout for dinner on weekdays and select weekend nights. Due to the fact that our food is made from scratch and intended to be eaten as soon as it is served, we recommend that diners arrive promptly to pick up their orders.
Do I need reservations?
We highly recommend reservations, as seating is limited. Reservations can be made through OpenTable. All reservations require a credit card. Diners may select from our three dining options of a standard table in the dining room, a high-top table in the kitchen, or outside in the courtyard. In case of inclement weather, Valente’s will set up tents for outdoor diners. As seating is limited, we cannot guarantee availability to move a table from one dining area to another but we will do our best to accommodate our guests.
Do you charge a cancellation fee?
Cancellations may be made through OpenTable up to 24 hours in advance. Diners are called the day of to confirm the reservation.
All reservations require a diner’s credit card be stored in OpenTable. Diners who do not cancel and do not show up for their reservation may be charged up to $20 per person.
Please be aware that Valente’s is a small restaurant and a no show has a significant impact on the business. We simply ask diners for the courtesy of letting us know if you need to cancel.
Do you cater?
Valente’s offers a variety of catering option, including private events and on-premise buyouts, a chef’s tasting menu, pickup catering, and off-premise catering. Please visit our Private Events page to request more information.
Do you offer gluten-free options?
Like most restaurants, Valente’s Cucina is not a certified gluten-free facility and cannot prevent the possibility of cross-contamination. If you have a serious gluten allergy or health issue, such as Celiac, we cannot serve you.
