Restaurant options are limited in Valleyview, but locals can find lots of great dining options relatively close to the village.
For pizza, locals head to Minelli's Pizza on North Wilson Road, "a westside tradition since 1967." You will understand why when you bite into one of the pizzas made with your choice of 17 toppings. Minelli's also serves subs, salads and Italian speciality entrees such as rigatoni Capri, manicotti and beef ravioli.
Ding Ho on Phillipi Road has been serving Cantonese food in the area since 1956. This restaurant serves many Cantonese favorites such as lo mein, fried rice, chop suey and egg foo yung. The somewhat eclectic menu also includes American dishes such as chef salad, cheeseburgers, pork chops and spaghetti.
For more upscale dining, locals go to Third & Hollywood in nearby Grandview Heights.
Whether eating a burger or a fish sandwich, or something more refined such as filet mignon or rainbow trout, the warm wood and brick interior invites diners to relax and enjoy their food while sipping a glass of wine or drinking a mug of craft beer. The apple brown Betty, chocolate pot de crème or lemon square desserts may make you want stay even longer.
