Valentino's New Vin Bar

The new V-Bar just opened recently and we decided to stop by and try it last week.
OMG! Finally a casual place to enjoy very well prepared Italian Delicacies.
When you walk into the Bar there are now High Bar Tables and Wines in cabinet's on the walls.
There is a Wine Cart which has several nice wines by the glass available plus the option to buy wines at a discount by the bottle available in the Bar area only.

The Dishes:
1. Il Culatello (King of Prosciutto) w/ Parmigiano Bisquits 19- (serves 3- 4)
2. Calamaretti Fritti (whole fried Calamari) Best we've ever had anywhere! 9- (serves 4)
3. Italian Giant Anchovies (amazing) 8-
4. House Made Tripe Raviolis w/ Pecorino (fantastic) 11-

As you can see the prices are very reasonable and many of these items are for sharing.
It's like Primi all over again. You can stop by for a quick dinner or snack and not have to get involved in a lengthy Dinner but still get to enjoy well made Italian Food. We are returning in a couple of weeks for a White Truffle Dinner.
