"My restaurants will always live by the quality of our ingredients.
I can't think of another supplier that has remained as consistent, dedicated and passionate.
I met Stefano 15 years ago when he was peddling 'bottarga' across London,
I have had the pleasure of working with Vallebona ever since. Their produce is faultless,
it takes me right back to my happiest times spent on the Island of Sardinia"
"I have worked with Vallebona since before Bocca di Lupo opened,
and their product curation is key to my menus at Bocca di Lupo and Vico. It is rare to work with someone, where you know every product they sell will excel your own standards even before you taste it - or indeed, rare to work with such lovely people."

"Vallebona is a food lover’s paradise and epitomises what By Word of Mouth looks for in its suppliers. For many years Stefano and his team have provided us with exceptional quality, artisan Italian produce, taking the time to talk over our requirements and going to great lengths to ensure our often very demanding needs are met. Vallebona is one of a kind and we are very lucky to work with a company that cares so greatly about the quality and provenance of its products. "

“I have been working with Stefano and the team at Vallebona for almost 10 years and they have consistently supplied the best that Italy has to offer. They are a real support to my business.”
"St Catherines College (Oxford University) have been enjoying the quality products supplied by V2B (Vallebona) for almost 20 years. It was the late 1990`s when I discovered Vallebona (V2B), Stefano had an article in the Telegraph about the Bottarga he supplies, from their I was introduced to his “Aladdin’s cave” of products.
We now use these products for the college Fellows on high table, for conferences banquets and to enhance student meals. Ican always rely on the charcuterie and cheeses to be consistent in quiality, Saffron Pecorino is always a hit.
There has always a friendly and helpful Stefano at the end of the phone, or a member of his team to advice on interesting products to try.
The service, advice and friendship given by Stefano is unique."
