About: Saverio’s Authentic Pizza Napoletana opened its doors in January 2015 inside our family business the A&S Pork Store of Massapequa. Our pizzaiolo and owner, Saverio Cataldo, always had a passion for pizza making. His first pies were made in our home, inside our fireplace as our children gathered around the hearth waiting for their pizzas! Who would have thought that almost 20 years later, we would have a wood fired Acunto oven and be making hundreds of pizzas a day!
Opening Saverio’s was so difficult as we had just lost the most important woman in our family, our Mom, Vincenza. We honor her memory and use many of her recipes, including our Mom’s pie made with her Genovese sauce.
In a town filled with pizza shops, many thought we were crazy to open another! We reassured them that our pizzas would be as Authentic Italian as our pork store, and hoped that everyone adapted to our style of pizza. Saverio’s Pizza Napoletana won the hearts of the Massapequa residents. Now, six years later, Saverio’s has become a destination spot. Guests come from across the Island for Saverio’s wood fired pizzas, especially, the unique and flavorful weekly specials. Opening Saverio’s was a dream that became a reality. We are thankful for our amazing family, our staff and the community that has become part of our Saverio’s story! We hope that you all can stop by when you are near Massapequa to visit us! Be safe and be well!
