We will be temporarily closed to move into our full-time, climate controlled CIOCCOLATO LAB at The Hood Kitchen Space.  This collaboration solves production inefficiencies to meet organic growth demands, ability to build Team Valenza, offer workshop series, and continue to release new authentic Italian inspired products, all with the continued blessing of calling ‘The Hood’ our home.  We appreciate your patience and loyalty as we make this game changing transition.  Feel free to call us at 949-891-1206 to place an order starting in July.

Look for progress posts through our email Newsletter, Instagram, and Facebook as Amy Jo brings her CIOCCOLATO LAB concept to life!
