🙁 = There was no kids menu. They had mostly soft drink options with very few non-carbonated and/or caffeine free drinks. There is not a lot of indoor seating space so a stroller or even a high chair takes up a lot of space.
One of my favorite foods to eat is pizza. I love to pick off each ingredient from the slice and eat it separately. I like when the cheese is ooey-gooey and the crust is thin, soft, and a little crunchy.
When we walked in to Pizzeria Valdiano, I marveled at all the shiny awards on the walls. They have been named “Best Pizza in Orlando” for 8 years. People must love this place! We were greeted with a smile and told about the specials. They had food behind a big glass ready to eat, but they also had options like salad and pasta for us to get stuff made especially for us. I pointed at the glass and mommy ordered each thing I pointed to. I ordered garlic knots, a chicken stromboli, and a slice of cheese pizza. We stood at the counter and watched them put our food into a big shiny oven. Then we took our seat at a booth. The high chair took up a lot of walking space, so when mommy went to get napkins it was hard for her to get out of the booth without disturbing our neighbors.
Even though Valdiano’s did not have a kids menu, the items were easy to cut into smaller portions. The knots were the size of dinner rolls and they were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The stromboli and garlic knots came with a special red sauce, but I did not like the sauce very much. I also didn’t like the sesame seeds on the Stromboli so I pulled them off. The pizza crust was thin enough for my chompers, and it was easy to cut into small pieces so I could feed myself.
For dessert the restaurant offers a 3 layer chocolate cake, cannoli, tiramisu, or a slice of cheesecake. For mommies and daddies, they have mini bottles of wine, too. I chose the chocolate cake, and mommy and I sat on the patio and had dessert. It was great. It was my first time having chocolate cake to celebrate turning 13 months old. I chose to use a fork, and mommy made sure I was careful. What a fun way to celebrate my first full month of toddlerhood!
