Popular Italian Dishes & Pizzas
In 1962, 12-year-old Vincent Scavo arrived in New York City from Carini, Sicily, with his family in search of the "Great American Dream". By the age of 16, Vinny had started working with his older brother Dominick making pizzas in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Vinny and Dominick, along with their cousin Sal, went to New Jersey and opened several pizzerias in Clinton, Somerville, Newton, Flemington and Ewing.
In 1972, Vinny married Nancy, and they started their family. Two years later, in 1974, Vinny opened his own Dominick’s Pizza Shoppe in Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. Over the next thirty years, Vinny continued to share his love of food and pizza with the community by opening several new locations in Richboro, Morrisville, and Langhorne, all bearing the name “Original Dominick’s Pizza.”
Vinny believed that his success was due to his dedicated customers who love his original pizza recipes, family, and hard-working staff who take pride in their work.
His wife and children can still be found in his pizza shops, continuing Vinny’s legacy of providing the local community with a place to relax and come together while enjoying some of the best pizza and Italian dishes around.
