Donna and Tony Vallone, of nationally renowned and beloved Tony’s, Tony’s Catering, Ciao Bello and Vallone’s, have been serving the public for more than 50 years. The Vallones have earned a flawless reputation for exceptional food and hospitality, excellent wine and impeccable service, and continuous, creative, changing menus.  Their restaurants have served eight US presidents, numerous foreign presidents, and notable dignitaries from around the world.  Tony was the first Texan inducted into the National Restaurant Association Hall of Fame in 1982 and the first American-born board member of the famed Gruppo Ristoratori Italiani of Italy.  He is a past member of the Nation’s Restaurant News “Hall of Fame” and was elected to the Culinary “Who’s Who of Texas.” In addition, Tony is the author of the critically acclaimed tony’s…the cookbook and is currently working on his second book. He has appeared on many national and local television programs.
 

In addition to the culinary contributions, both Donna and Tony donate their time and talents to numerous local and national causes.  They both proudly sit as board members of various organizations, including those in the medical field and fine arts in our Houston community.
 

“Attention to detail” is the common denominator of the Vallone restaurants.  Tony’s entire staff is privy to his favorite motto, “You’re only as good as your last meal.”
