A lot can happen over the course of 55 years. People come and go, babies are hatched, and kids grow up. But some things never change, things like the family recipes used at Valente’s Restaurant. The Valentes opened the eatery back in 1958, and since then, have been serving many of the same dishes Nadine Valente created in Italy all those years ago.
The menu features a wide variety of familiar Italian classics, from veal cacciatore to fettucine carbonara, all served alongside grilled-to-order steaks, chops, and fresh seafood. It also features the more recently invented Three Little Pigs mac ’n’ cheese, which coats noodles, Italian ham, bacon, and salami in a creamy cheese sauce. This award-winning favorite is now available frozen at Price Chopper Supermarkets and other local stores.
