ABOUT DENINO'S

Denino’s Pizzeria is a landmark in New York, with our award winning, thin-crust pizza.

 

We originally opened in 1937 as a full tavern on Richmond Avenue, Staten Island until Carlo Denino introduced Pizza in 1951. Since then, Denino’s Pizzeria and Tavern has been renowned for our pizza pie and Italian dinner platters, which we always prepare fresh daily. We use our family’s recipes for Chicken Parmigiana, Meatballs and Sausage and over the years we’ve added our own version of tavern favorites like Wings, Scungilli and Hero Sandwiches.

Everything is always made from scratch, never frozen, and cooked to order.

 

Whenever New Yorkers come home, they come home to Denino’s Pizzeria

for thin crust, crispy, Cheesy Pizza piping hot right out of the oven.

 

When you visit a Denino’s Restaurant you are sharing in a part of our

legacy and family tradition that started nearly 8 decades ago.

HISTORY of DENINO'S PIZZERIA & TAVERN

At the age of two, Carlo Denino’s father John (Giovanni) arrives in America (NYC) from the island of Sicily, Italy.

Denino’s is touted in publications such as Zagat, Time Out, The Staten Island Advance, The New York Times, The Daily News and even in British Newspapers.

Carlo Denino is born. His father, John,

opens a Confectionery store on the corner of Richmond Avenue and Hooker Place in the Port Richmond section of Staten Island, NY.

Carlo Denino passes away suddenly.

Through the sadness, Carlo’s wife Palma, daughter Carla and Palma's son Michael Burke, continue to manage the business.

The Denino’s open a pool hall next door

to the Confectionery store.

With the repeal of prohibition, Denino’s

starts serving beer.

Community and public officials dedicate the corner of Port Richmond Avenue and Hooker Place to Carlo’s memory and appropriately rename it CARLO DENINO’S WAY.

Denino’s opens a full Tavern at 524 Richmond Ave. where the present business is still located and continues to thrive.

 

Carlo’s sister, Rose (later known as Aunt Rose, even to her customers) works with

her parents in the Tavern. Their older sister,

Vee (Vincenza) also assists behind the scenes.

Carlo Denino joins the Navy.

Denino’s commemorates 70 years of being in business at the same and only location. A grand picnic is held in Carlo Denino’s memory.

 

A PBS special airs titled “A Walking Tour

of Staten Island” (with David Hartmann). Denino’s is featured in their showcase of historical Staten Island.

 

Denino’s wins AOL’s “City’s Best” (all Boroughs) for the best pizza in New York City two consecutive years (2007-08).

 

Carlos son Michael Denino opens

Denino's Pizza Place in Aberdeen, NJ.

Carlo’s father John passes away. Carlo takes the reins and introduces pizza at the tavern. Carlo takes Staten Island by surprise; the pizza was a big hit.

For the first time since opening in 1937,

the Denino family decides to open another location, DENINO’S SOUTH PIZZERIA

on the Jersey Shore.

Carlo expands the menu but keeps it simple and always fresh. Denino’s Tavern and Pizzeria becomes a household name on

Staten Island and beyond.

Carlo’s younger sister, Katherine starts to work at the restaurant on a regular basis and his Aunt Laura continues to work until she is 82 years old. Many other relatives have been part of this family business throughout the years – It’s all about family.

 

Denino’s is visited by Mayors, Borough Presidents, Politicians, actors, and most importantly, by the many families that

come back again and again.

Denino’s is now franchising!

 

Today, we continue to follow in Carlo’s footsteps and honor the tradition by specializing in authentic NY Style Pizza, in addition to our full service Italian menu.

 

Our secret preparations. We'll show you how!

 

We prepare our own dough, made fresh daily, bake it to crispy perfection, topped with our own sauce & handmade cheese.

 

We’ll teach you everything you need to know about owning a pizzeria. We promise to help you when you join one of America’s oldest families in the business!
