Where Do We Buy Our Sausage?

Tony grinds all of the meat for our homemade sausage.

Buy sausage? Absolutely not! We make it by hand! If you have tried our famous Giovanna Pizza or new baked cavatelli, then you know how amazing our sausage is. The reason it’s so good? We make it ourselves using only the finest ingredients! That’s right! Proprietor and pizzaiolo Tony DiMaio grinds, seasons, and prepares every morsel of sausage that we serve … by hand.

Our Homemade Sausage

What goes in to making the best sausage this side of Italy? Tony starts with a whole, fresh pork butt. He then grinds it right here in our kitchen, making sure every piece is up to his standards. After the entire piece of pork is perfectly ground, Tony spreads out the meat and seasons it with sea salt from the Mediterranean, freshly ground pepper, and the perfect amount of dried fennel. Then, he lovingly combines all of the ingredients by hand, making sure that they are properly distributed throughout. Once he is satisfied, Tony cooks the sausage to perfection in our open-flame oven. Delizioso! If you haven’t tried our homemade sausage, be sure to order one of our dishes which features it today!
