Our Story

Local restaurateur John Avoletta, the owner of uptown eateries City Bistro and Lua, remembers that when he was a kid, his grandmother would steal his winter coat to cover her rising pizza dough. Now, after countless pies of his own and two decades in the restaurant business, he’s opened his first Italian kitchen and pizzeria, Johnny Pepperoni.

​​Johnny Pepperoni is dedicated to providing an excellent dining experience and serving delicious Italian entrées.
