James Spata was born with a passion for quality Italian food. This passion stemmed from his long Italian heritage and many years learning secret family recipes in his grandmother’s kitchen. Having a desire to join his love of Italian food and business, James purchased Valeo’s Pizza Kitchen in 1973 from Sam Valeo, as a family owned and operated local pizzeria.With a promise to Sam and a love of the Kenosha community, James used his passion for creating quality Italian food to build a legacy of providing great food with the purpose of giving back to the community around him.Valeo’s is truly a family owned and operated business. James and Lyla Spata raised all of their 5 children in the restaurant, instilling an ethos of hard work and a desire to serve those around them.In the fall of 2012, James’ dream came true by passing the Valeo’s legacy on to his son, Eric Spata. Following in his father’s footsteps, Eric continues to foster his love of Italian food and business by ensuring high standards in the kitchen and unparalleled customer service.Our slogan is “from our family to yours” which goes far beyond our recipes.
