Our Story

It started over sixty years ago when a young man named Alfonso Mandara left his native Italy for something more and found himself in a mozzarella cheese factory in Brooklyn. After years of hard work and savings, In 1960, he signed a piece of paper that would change his life and our lives forever…the opening of his first pizzeria became the beginning of his favorite story and our family legacy.

 Little did he know what he thought was already his American dream come true would soon far exceed anything he could have imagined. The hard work and drive he taught his sons along with the encouragement and opportunity he gave them would grow into what has become our family business today.

Now in our third generation and bringing over fifty years of experience, one thing remains true to our hearts—our story.
