The scoop: Valentino's is gunning for that molto Italiano feel, with big, flat New York-style pizzas and huge, Sicilian deep-dish pies alongside other staple Italian dishes. The pie: More saucy than cheesy. The crust depends on the pizza — one square of thick, crunchy, Sicilian is a meal in itself. Hand-tossed is more manageable. Specialties: Specialty pies include a traditional foccacia pie and a new "a la vodka" pie, with booze-spiked tomato sauce. But the best might be the three-cheese white — the creamy ricotta base coupled with sharp romano and sweet mozzarella for a complex combo. Prices: Pies $9.75 to $18; slices $2.25 and up. Monday and Wednesday, pick-up-only 18-inch cheese pizza $7. Takeout or dine in? Takeout. Seating inside is limited. Call ahead and pick up a gargantuan pie to dine on all week. Delivery radius is about 50 blocks.
