The main ingredient in any Italian meal is enjoying it with family & friends. It is a tradition that our family has shared over and over again throughout the ages. When they first arrived in America, Grandma Nosenzo & Grandpa Mancini built a restaurant in Upper Macopin, New Jersey; continuing on the tradition brought over from Italy. Their parents had owned pizzerias and little eateries all over Italy: as had their grandparents before them, and so on. The Mancini's even added an Inn onto their restaurant, encouraging people from all over to come share their food and stay a while. 

As they passed down the tradition, it eventually fell to us. We honor our family's heritage by serving many of the same recipes while still adding in more modern takes on certain classics. The Nosenzo's hail from Southern Italy where the regions roots serve mainly the foods we are all so familiar with; pastas and meats. The Mancini's are based in the Northern regions of Italy where the tradition lies in fish based meals. Of course, all of Italy has always been in love with brick oven pizza. 

We've pulled dishes from each of these beloved regions to craft a menu where there is something for everyone.

JOHN MANCINI

CHEF

Chef John Mancini has been cooking since he was 8 years old. Everything he knows was passed to him by his Nonna Nosenzo. Born in Italy, she taught him how to create each dish the true Italian way. Pouring quality, patience, and simplicity into every meal. 

The Brick oven

 

The bricks and marble were made in Italy. The oven itself was hand crafted by our chef and a local brick mason. It heats to about 800 degrees using wood based fire. As per Italian tradition we make one size pizza, each one unique.
