Café Valentino is a vibrant Italian restaurant and Christchurch dining institution serving Chef Karren Gray’s scrumptious, soul-satisfying take on Italian food alongside a heaping helping of hospitality. Outstanding food should to be enjoyed in a buzzing atmosphere among great company and with excellent service – something Café Valentino’s customers have been experiencing since 1991. The first thing you notice when you walk into Café Valentino is the huge collection of signed show posters featuring a who’s who of touring artists who have dined with us. Since our inception on Colombo Street (around the corner from the Town Hall) we’ve been a celebrity haunt, tempting visiting performers from around the country and all over the world with our heavenly pizzas, perfect pasta and decadent house-made desserts.

When you dine at Café Valentino, you never know who could be seated at the next table…

While our location might have changed, the relaxed, sophisticated ambience diners have come to expect has reached new heights and our food is as delicious as ever. Always innovating and improving, without compromising on quality, we have won a devoted international customer base (and a wall-full of awards) through our consistent flair, originality and love of good food.

We’d love to welcome you back for more, or for you to come in and experience Café Valentino for the first time and discover what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, why not whet your appetite by taking a virtual tour with our mini movie below?
