THE HISTORY OF AIELLO'S PIZZA

In 1967, Giuseppe, “Joe,” Aiello set sail for America from Palermo, Sicily to catch a fleeting dream. With only 13 dollars in his pocket, Giuseppe left his family, confident that the land of opportunity would provide more than an income but of the life he had dreamed about.

After years of kneading dough and simmering sauce for an employer, Giuseppe decided to fulfill his dream and open his own pizza shop.

April 5, 1978 marks the opening of Aiello’s Pizza on Murray Ave. From the first day the door opened to the public, Giuseppe provided the freshest ingredients, making his pizza of the highest quality.

Hours before opening each morning Giuseppe was hard at work preparing fresh dough, which is the essential element of the Aiello taste. The thick red homemade sauce is topped off with grated cheese, deliciously melted onto the pizza in a traditional Italian fashion. The fusion of these ingredients come together to make this one of a kind taste.

Giuseppe’s dedication to the success of Aiello’s Pizza is a result of hard work, long hours and an appreciation of his customers.

Sadly on May 13, 2013 Giuseppe passed away. Now his son, Michael, will continue the tradition Giuseppe started. The same dedication will keep this a neighborhood favorite. We are glad to welcome the next generation of loyal customers.
