Valente, Inc

Small-batch, Hand-crafted, Gourmet Pasta

The Valente Family has been handcrafting pasta in Charlottesville since 1982. Our company was founded by Mary Frances Valente. She began by making pasta for friends and family and then selling her handmade pasta at the Charlottesville Farmer’s Market. After a few years, she expanded into specialty stores and local retailers. After graduating from culinary school in Paris, Mary Ann Valente, Mary Frances’ daughter, joined the team to create new flavors and complimentary recipes.
