“The restaurant world is a blend of business and poetry,” states renowned restaurateur Piero Selvaggio, who, over more than 40 years in the business, has mastered the perfect balance of both.
One day, when someone writes the history of the success of Italian cuisine in the world, one chapter should be dedicated to the generous southerner [Piero Selvaggio] who has battled to help America understand that Italy is not just about macaroni.
Valentino has a way of making a food-and-wine experience something more than the delights of a chef showing off his abilities or a wine cellar yielding up its treasures. It's about creating a moment in time when all seems right with the world.
Pierro Selvaggio has been one of the most influential Italian restaurateurs, and Valentino has arguably been the most influential Italian restaurant in the last fifty years.
Piero Selvaggio not only has assembled the best of Italy, California and France, he is a genius at matching them with the modern, high-style Italian food.
One of the city's most passionate, knowledgeable and indefatigable Champion of Italian Cuisine. He may have known more about Italian food than virtually anyone else in America.
