A very popular family-run Italian restaurant in the Hudson Valley is celebrating a major milestone. Many celebrities have recently dined at this eatery.

On Tuesday, Savona’s Trattoria celebrated 50 years of serving Hudson Valley residents.

"50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY On March 22, 1972, Emmanuel Savona aka Manny opened the Savona’s first pizzeria in Kingston NY, paving the road for all that's come since ❤️Cheers to 50 years serving the Hudson Valley," Savona's Trattoria Kingston wrote on Facebook.

It's a casual-styled Italian Restaurant, housed on what owners call "the Historic Kingston Waterfront" in a former Opera House that dates back to the 1800s.

Savona's proudly serves "authentic Italian dishes." The origin of the dishes dates back several generations to “Villa Bate” – a small village in Sicily.

Over 50 years ago, Emanuel Savona moved from Italy to New York armed with recipes in his back pocket.

"Years later he and wife Cecilia would take their new family out of Brooklyn north in search of a better place to raise their four children. “Manny & Cell” (as people came to know them) opened their first pizzeria on Albany Ave. in the City of Kingston in 1972," Savona’s Trattoria Kingston writes on Facebook.
