Valente’s Italian Deli, Wall

Valente's Italian Deli

I have lived in Wall for about 12 years, and one of my go-to places is Valente’s Italian deli on Belmar Blvd. This family-owned deli has a great selection: besides the great sandwiches (both hot and cold subs), they offer many delicious homemade specialties including soups, chicken cutlets, meatballs, cold salads, usually a pasta dish and a chicken dish (these are house specials and they change daily), and even pizza. In the winter they also have some great comfort foods like homemade chicken pot pie and chicken and rice soup. Valente’s also has a wide selection of desserts – pies for the holiday season, Italian cookies, and my personal favorite, homemade cannolis.

In the very back of the deli there is a butcher shop featuring fresh hamburgers, steaks, chicken cutlets, chicken kabobs and hot or sweet sausage. When you order hamburgers, they use freshly ground meat and make the patties on the spot – it doesn’t get any fresher! They also have prepared foods to bring home – heat it up, and dinner is served right in your dining room.

We have also used them to cater parties at my home. For starters, he made us a large antipasto tray with mozzarella cheese, olives and Italian meats. For dinner we ordered trays of sausage and peppers, penne with vodka sauce, chicken fingers for the kids, even barbecue ribs made with gluten free barbecue sauce – and all of the meals were delicious. The staff are also very easy to work with – if you tell then what you need for your party, they will make every effort to accommodate your needs, including delivery on all catering.
To sum it up, if you are in the area and you are looking for a great sandwich, steaks to bring home and grill, or just a loaf of his fresh Italian bread, Valente’s is highly recommended.
