Pizzaiolo (restaurant chain)
Pizzaiolo was founded in Montorio, Italy in the early 1940s by Nonno Giuseppe and Nonna Ida, and was run at a small pizzeria. The company name derives from the Italian word pizzaiolo [pittsaˈjɔːlo] which means "pizza maker". In the 1960s, the company moved to Toronto where the chain was started by "Mama Anna" and "Papa Antonio". They opened their first full-fledged restaurant in 1967.
Pizzaiolo has 40 locations in the GTA.
It was the winner of a Now magazine Best of Toronto: Readers' Poll" for "Best Pizza Slice".
