Who We Are

- A 36 year history -

From Valentino's to The Proud Sicilian

Harbonites will remember Valentinos Restaurant. Established in 1984, its owners, Maurizio and Barbara made a formidable team that firmly placed the restaurant on the map of Birmingham's culinary scene. Cited as one of the city's most popular Italian favourites, the family behind the restaurant created an escape to Italy in the heart of Birmingham thanks to its authentic Italian cuisine, fun atmosphere and live music that saw loyal customers returning time and time again over its 40 years in business. 


Sadly, Valentinos officially closed its doors in 2018, after the passing of the legendary proprietor, loving husband and devoted father Maurizio Guglia. 


The Proud Sicilian is Valentino's Sicilian heir.


As a family, we wanted to continue to honour the family business and where it all began. 

The Proud Sicilian still holds its original values of exceptional mouth-watering innovative dishes and a relaxed and friendly family atmosphere, in a setting that transports you away from the city, to an enchanting Italian garden terrace.


Wow such amazing real Sicilian food. Look forward to coming back.
