About Us

The Black Stallion, located on Route 5 in Vernon New York, was established in 1972 by Gino and Maria Vullo. Gino and Maria’s love for their native Italian cuisine and their ability to make all who dined with them feel special and welcome, is the reason that the restaurant is still successful today.

In 1986 the Vullo’s only son Sal took over as the sole proprietor. Sal runs the restaurant in the same fashion as his parents, combining his Italian heritage and his American upbringing. The Black Stallion is one of the oldest family owned and operated restaurants in the area.

At the Black Stallion the staff is like family. Some of the staff has been with the restaurant for many years. The head Chef Jeff Beam has been collaborating with the Vullo family for 25 years. 

With Jeff’s input and some of the classic recipes brought from Italy by Sal’s parents, they have created a memorable dining experience. Conclude your meal with one of the restaurants home made desserts, created by Francine Williams. Come see why the Black Stallion is favored by so many in Central New York.
