About Our Restaurant

Our Family

Pasquale Valenti, who emigrated from Calabria, Italy, always had a dream of owning his own restaurant and after many years of hard work he was able to finally make it happen.

At the start, Pasquale and his wife Yolanda along with his sister Mary Mazza steadily built a strong core of regular customers by specializing in “home style cooking” with fast and friendly service.

His philosophy from the beginning was to “ treat each customer as you would a guest in your home, give them large portions at a reasonable price and let word of mouth be your advertisement.”

After being established for over 42 Years, our family feels fortunate and blessed for all the lasting friendships that were made here, and all the loyal customer support that has made us successful. It is especially heartening to see customers who started at Valenti’s as children now bringing in their own children.

Valenti’s is Agawam’s oldest independent family restaurant and our reputation in the community has been based on 100% total customer satisfaction.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your order please bring it to our attention. We would appreciate the opportunity to make it right.
