My Dad met the owner of Dominick’s Pizzeria, Vito, in person one night on the road.
Vito had car problems and needed someone to boost his vehicle. My father happened to be the person who helped him out. Vito wanted to pay my dad but my father said it was okay. So, Vito invited him to his restaurant.
We arrived unannounced on a Sunday afternoon. We were the only ones there who sat and stayed for a while. Vito and my dad shook hands and then he met my sisters and I. They spoke for a little bit and then we meet his wife.
After she gave us a warm welcome she jokingly said to my father, ‘you should have left him at the side of the road!’ Her anecdotes and witty comments help set the homely tone for the afternoon.
Vito and Anne fixed a really good pizza for us,( as you saw in the other picture). We had to wait for a while but it was worth the wait. It was fresh and delicious. You ever had pizza with shrimp? Vito said he always think of new pizza recipes.
I aim to visit Vito again. You should go too! Visit Dominick’s Pizzeria at 1015 Allerton Ave Bronx, NY 10469.
