ABOUT Vic Malatesta
Vic Malatesta, owner and operator of Vic's All Star Kitchen, was born in Los Angeles, California. His family has been in the restaurant business for years. He moved to Northern California where he attended high school and college, and then continued the family restaurant tradition.
Vic is a 34 year resident of Pleasanton. His children Michael, Mark and Amy all graduated from Foothill High School. A former Foothill Booster Club President for four years, Vic has teamed his love of sports with his passion for good food to create a solid dining experience with a local sports theme. Visitors to Vic's will find memorabilia and framed sports photos from many of the local sports heroes and local schools. Vic's concept of a community restaurant recognizing youth has made this a popular place for local residents.
In the late afternoon and evenings, the restaurant is opened up for banquets, receptions, parties and special events. "We can work with any budget" says Vic, who wishes to encourage the community spirit of fun and dining.
Vic worked for five years at Tia Maria in Emeryville, for two years as a Food and Beverage Director for Holiday Inn and then as the East Bay District Manager for Pepsico's Taco Bell chain. After that, he worked five years as a restaurant consultant also was the Food Services Director for Chevron Corporation in Bishop Ranch. This experience gave him a broad understanding of the restaurant business and customer care. He has brought his love of sports and of the community together to create VIC'S ALL STAR KITCHEN.
Vic's is open 7 days a week from 7 am to 2 pm. with patio dining as well as private meeting rooms available for groups of 25-130 people.
Vic brought together the team that he wanted for his own restaurant in 1994. Since then, he has enjoyed a loyal and popular following. While being an active member of the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, Pleasanton Downtown Association and a member of the Tri-Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, Vic also finds the time to actively support the local schools and their activities. In his spare time, he enjoys time with his family.
