Santoni’s was founded in 1988, almost 30 years ago!
Santoni’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant in Garfield was founded in 1988 by Ed Lewer and Joe Parillo. Both coming from a vast variety of restaurant experience they set out to create mouthwatering food using only freshest ingredients and the highest quality products. Santoni’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant was an instant hit and over the years has become a staple in the town of Garfield. Joe and Ed’s sons worked in the pizzeria since they young kids and are continuing their father’s principles and philosophy. In 2013, Santoni’s opened its second location in Ridgewood, NJ with the same idea and principles in mind. Today, both locations are staples in their respective communities providing local fundraising and support for community programs.
