St. Louis has spoken and Vito’s has made the A-List! Each year, the readers and editors of St. Louis Magazine cast their vote for their favorite food, night life, culture, shopping and more. The new West County resident, Vito’s in the Valley is thrilled to hold a spot among the region’s finest! While Vito’s in the Valley may be less than a year old, the family has been perfecting their Spiedini recipe for generations. Executive Chef GianFranco Munna along with the LaFata family are honored to be recognized for this delicious family tradition.
“At Vito’s in the Valley (that is, Chesterfield Valley), a half-breast of chicken is pounded thin, then liberally stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, pine nuts, shallots, pancetta, and a touch of mozzarella before being rolled up and sautéed. Chef Gianfranco Munna calls it simply “spiedini.” The menu refers to it as pollo alla fiorentina. You’ll just proclaim it wonderful.”
