Pizza, Pasta, Vin0
Giuseppe Migliori emigrated from Frosinone, Italy, on the SS Prinzess Irene, arriving at New York’s Ellis Island in 1907. He was eleven years old, accompanied only by his brother Rocco (age 16) and sister Sarafina (age 9). Just two years earlier, the first pizzeria in the country opened in lower Manhattan, serving what we now know as New York style pizza. In honor of our “Nonni”, Giuseppe, we bring Mount Pleasant, Migliori’s authentic New York style pizza, pasta and vino.
Giuseppe’s son, Giulio Migliori, attended medical school in Bologna, Italy, where he and his wife, Gloria, started their family in the 1950s. The last of their six children is Don Migliori, who with his wife Joanne, lives here in Mount Pleasant. Joanne grew up in Philadelphia, PA, and Don grew up in Providence, RI, both rich in Italian culture and history.
