In 1977, Ron and Denise DeNunzio launched the opening of DeNunzio's Pizza Villa on Lowry Avenue in Jeannette. In the next few years, the couple established DeNunzio's Italian Restaurant at the same location and added three additional rooms to accommodate patrons. The glass room is quaint, yet elegant, and the golf room pays homage to many local golfers including their twin sons, Ronald and David.
DeNunzio's Specialty Foods started at the very beginning of Ron and Denise DeNunzio's adventure into the Italian food business. From restaurants to retail, the beloved family recipes are what truly makes DeNunzio's so special, and tasteful. They paved the way for the first consumer products: DeNunzio's Original Spaghetti Sauce and DeNunzio's Lasagne. The DeNunzio family is dedicated to sharing their passion for food with the world. Through hard work, meticulous creation, and determination, each product we offer tells a story that delivers authentic Italian flavors and aromas for everyone to enjoy.
20 years later, in 1997, and in the same week that their third son was born, Michael, the Monroeville location opened its doors. In 2017, an additional dining room, seating up to 65 guests was annexed, and the wrap around bar was expanded to create additional seating for 25 patrons.
In 2004, The Italian Chop House had its grand opening at the Arnold Palmer Airport. Guests can enjoy a cocktail on the terrace by the runway while watching the beautiful sunsets, have dinner under the crystal chandeliers, or listen to the sounds of music at the Sinatra Bar.
DeNunzio’s Italian Restaurants and Specialty Foods celebrate its longevity and success over 40 years of operation and expresses heartfelt gratitude to its loyal patrons.
