In old Italy, if someone
wanted a great pizza, they would go to a Pizzaiolo. A respected,
professional "pizza maker". Hence our name, Pizzaiolo.
The dedication of three generations of professional "Pizzaiolo's"
have contributed to our delicious menu today. Starting in the
1940's nonno (grandpa) Giuseppe and nonna (grandma) Ida opened
their first pizzeria in the little town of Montorio, Central Italy.
The 60's brought a wave of immigration from Italy to Canada. Along
with it, mama Anna and papa Antonio brought forth the old world
traditions of making pizza, opening La Gondola at Keele &
Wilson in 1967 followed by Pizza Gigi in 1970 to celebrate the
birth of baby Luigi. Today Luigi a third generation pizza maker
carries on the tradition and authenticity of the professional
"Pizzaiolo" with many great locations throughout the GTA.
Pizzaiolo has taken generations of pizza making pride to bring
you a true taste of history.
Come to Pizzaiolo, taste the difference that family, tradition
and experience bring to the table.
