This is where it all began
Cosmo Antonio Joe
From the picturesque views and quaint towns of Southern Italy, the proud owners of Valentino's Pizza, immigrated to the United States in 1979, planting their roots in Brooklyn, NY. This is where Antonio, Giuseppe, and Cosimo's first restaurant business venture began, in 1980. After four successful years, the entrepreneurs moved across state lines into New Jersey, where their love of the business and success flourished. Throughout the years, multiple businesses were opened around the state in towns like East Hanover, Carteret, Lake Hiawatha, Dover and Hope, New Jersey. The three brother's recently expanded their businesses and opened two more pizzerias named, Mezza Luna in both Milford and Somerset, New Jersey. The original Valentino's was opened in 1992 in the town of Flanders and after 25 years, is still going strong.
