The new Gino’s NY Pizza Bar and Restaurant has had a steady flow of customers since it opened on Monday, August 8th. Owners Joseph Farese and Richard Cocharan are glad to be located next to the established Starbucks on 141 to join in with their brisk walk-in traffic. Now you can stop by for a drink, pizza, dessert and then coffee.
Not only can you enjoy an Italian meal of pasta, pizza and rolls (as in chicken, sausage, veggie or pepperoni rolls.) if you’re in a hurry you can pick up a hot slice, calzone or roll that’s ready to go.
Farese, who has been in the restaurant business for 18 years, is glad to be serving this good, New York-style food. His grandmother owned a pizzeria in New York City named Gino’s so he’s here to carry on her tradition. Farese says his favorite thing is to “watch the faces of his customers when they take a bite of his food.”
At one point he asked, “Have you eaten yet? Well, you’ll eat now.” He gave me a slice of his thin crust lasagna pizza, a best seller along with the white pizza and the garden pizza, and I enjoyed it. The sauce was just right.
Gino’s also serves some great looking desserts such as homemade cannolis, cappuccino cake and today they offered pistachio cake. So save room after your pizza.
Gino’s does cater and in about a month will begin delivering within a five mile radius. You can call in and order by phone. Their hours are:
Mon-Th 11 a.m.- 10 p.m.
Fri-Sat 11 a.m.-11a.m.
Sun noon-6 p.m.
