Valenza has the heart and spirit of a cozy and warm Italian village café in an upscale setting. The dining room features authentic Venetian plastered walls with rustic oak and pinewoods and also houses some amazing one of a kind turn of the century architectural pieces. Experience the warmth and elegance of Valenza while dining under the antique European candle chandeliers.

Valenza offers a wonderful private dining room with seating for 30 guests.

Valenza’s patio is one of the most sought after experience for alfresco dining. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of our city streets and diners feel like they are carried away to the tuscan countryside.
