Gioachino says his family came over on the boat. I wonder what boat that was. His mother is my step-daughter and she was born in NY State and is NOT Italian. Gioachino only went to live with his father because he got a car and gets money from his father who owns a construction business, but has that business in his current wife's name. My daughter has to pay child support because the judge doesn't care that Gio's father has a lot of money. My daughter works very hard for the little money she gets but the judge just doesn't care. There is no justice in Chautauqua County.

I agree with renaldo, my experience in Italy with pizza was VERY thin crust crisp, always fresh ingredients but this was rome and Tuscany so maybe Sicilian is different. I wish them luck but don't think jamestown needs another pizza place. A REAL Italian eatery would be wonderful! Anti pasta, paninis, fresh pastry, homemade pasta noodles, and real cappuccinos. Steaks served rare and thick with a good chianti. Yum! And serve it late because everyone takes a siesta in the afternoon.

The description here of Italian vs American pizza doesn't match what I've seen, but maybe it is specific to Sicily. Pizzas in mainland Italy and in most of Europe are thin and simple with very high quality crust & normally available in commonly named types (like Margherita) with a fixed set of toppings. The best is the use of spiced olive oil drizzled onto the pizza after done... would be cool if someone did that locally.

I am very excited that East Second Street finally has a venue to buy pizzas and 2-liters of soda. This has never happened before.
