About us

Greetings from Valente's

Welcome to Valentes Restaurant. In 1958 our grandparents Nadine and Caston Valente with the help of their son Donald opened Valentes. Nadine Valente brought with her many traditional recipes from Italy. We still use these recipes and over the years have added many more. On September 7, 2003 a devastating fire destroyed the building and all of its contents. With the help of many people and the support of our guests, we were able to rebuild. We look forward to serving you many years to come. With 65 years of service and counting we are very proud  to have the restaurant still operated under the Valente family tree and also be one of the longest family owned establishments in the capital region. We will continue to strive to keep it that way and we thank you all for your support throughout the years.
