Home delivery from Ristorante Da Valentino

It's been a while since we've eaten at Valentino's. In retrospect, eating at the restaurant has its advantages. Service charge can be less than delivery and while at that, there's a free round of their tasty focaccia with their pesto/anchovy dip. Which one would have to order separately and pay for with delivery.

Ristorante Da Valentino, bormio salad

Liked the Bormio salad from the last time I had it. It's the apples, pine nuts and ricotta that brings it together. Survived the delivery transit pretty well if I might say so.

Their prawn and squid pizza looked good on their menu online. One could reasonably construe the image as deliberately misleading. 

Ristorante Da Valentino, prawn squid pizza

Because the real thing looked like this. It was an okay pizza. Tasted like how it looked. Squid-y, a little prawn-y with a flat crust that's not Neapolitan styled.

Ristorante Da Valentino, beef truffle sauce mushroom spaghetti egg

The specials/recommended section of their menu had this beef and truffle sauce spaghetti. Came with tender slices of beef, garlic, mushrooms and an egg. That beef and truffle sauce had a profile like Marmite but with less saltiness and a truffle-y undertone. Nice one this.

Maybe you can consider trattoria l operetta, while I'm not sure if they deliver it has 2nd pizza foe 5bucks for takeaway. Eminently edible
