About Us

Authentic Italian Cuisine

Outstanding food sure to be enjoyed in a buzzing atmosphere among great company and with excellent service – something Café Valentino’s customers have been experiencing since 1991, with the only authentic wood-fired pizza in central Christchurch.

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.

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.
