Catering Information

Valente’s is taking a limited quantity of holiday catering orders. All orders must be placed in person, via email, or over the phone. Each dish is designed to serve eight-to-twelve people but can be adjusted to your needs with an additional per-person fee for the dish(es).

Cutoff for ordering is two weeks before the holiday but the earlier, the better. We are not offering “packages” as we want to customize the meal to your specific needs. In addition to the dishes below, items can be ordered off of our other catering menus, which you can click here to see.

Looking for the seven fishes? We’ve got plenty of options below to start! If you have a specific request that is not on the menu, ask and we will do our best to accommodate you.
