The Wellington Chamber of Commerce has announced that DiSalvo’s Trattoria and One Price Dry Cleaners have become members.
DiSalvo’s Trattoria was established by Pasquale “Patrick” DiSalvo, who was born in Bagheria, Sicily, and grew up with a deep respect for family values and an appreciation of fresh, delicious homemade meals prepared by his “Momma” Rosa.
In 1955, when DiSalvo was 5, his father moved the family to the United States and settled in Milwaukee. There, at the age of 8, DiSalvo got his first job (with no pay) in the restaurant business peeling 50-pound bags of potatoes with his father. Later the family moved to New York, where Pasquale grew up.
For almost three decades, DiSalvo worked hard and became a successful, multi-tasking entrepreneur and business owner based in the western communities of Palm Beach County. He was a real estate developer and is now a certified public accountant. He currently owns and operates DiSalvo & Associates PA, a certified accounting firm located next to the restaurant, with his children Jill and Scott.
Due to DiSalvo’s upbringing and his passion for family and good food, he created DiSalvo’s Trattoria located at 1760 N. Jog Road, Suite 180 in West Palm Beach. It is a family-owned restaurant dedicated to cultivating a warm, friendly environment where guests feel like “famiglia” and enjoy “Momma’s” original recipes prepared and served by the DiSalvo team. Per tradition, DiSalvo personally checks the food every night with a taste test to ensure quality. He said his restaurant offers “great, simple Italian food that’s authentic Southern Italian.”
DiSalvo added that his restaurant is known as the place with the “world’s best meatball.” The restaurant has a full service wine and liquor bar, full service catering for up to 100 people in their Famiglia Room, and a private dining room that seats up to 25 people.
The Wellington Chamber of Commerce also recognizes DiSalvo’s many contributions to the community. He is committed to children’s charities and is active in the Healthcare District of Palm Beach County. In addition, he recently provided financial help to the widow of one of his former employees.

One Price Dry Cleaners is located at 111 S. State Road 7 in Royal Palm Beach. The business is owned and operated by Jack and Dana Linden, who moved to Jupiter in 2003 from Long Island, N.Y. They opened their doors about a month ago.
Jack explained that the cost to dryclean most garments at his location is $3.59 — hence the name. One Price Dry Cleaners is one of about 7 percent of drycleaners that use the environmentally friendly hydrocarbon cleaning system. Although hydrocarbon machines are more expensive, they offer benefits. There are no known health hazards with hydrocarbon usage, clothes get cleaner, brighter, softer and odor-free, and it is safe on beads, leather trims and other plastic ornaments.
“I want the community to know that my wife and I are hands-on,” Jack said. “One of us will always be there to take care of any problems that may come up.”
