Additional business details
Villa Italian Kitchen was founded with one store, one family and one concept in 1964, when Michele “Michael” Scotto brought his authentic old-world recipes from Naples, Italy to New York City. Michele’s commitment to hospitality, quality ingredients and the strict loyalty to those now famous recipes, built the business. We pride ourselves on using homemade dough, 100% whole milk mozzarella and fresh sauce each day to make our pizzas, Stromboli and pasta dishes. From that first Villa Pizza that opened in 1964, next to the CBS/Ed Sullivan Theater, to nearly 250 Villa Italian Kitchen restaurants worldwide, our commitment to quality and genuine hospitality remains the basis of our foundation.
