Cooking homemade Italian comfort food is a rich part of our family history. It all began with the recipes our grandmother Mary Fazio served in the "shack". Mary Fazio was born in New York City to immigrants of Ischia, Italy, a small island just west of Naples. In 1959, Mary took her own pots and pans from home, $700 savings and a passion for great Italian food to start Mary's Pizza Shack and the restaurant became an instant success. Today we continue to cook with the same passion and desire to share good food with good neighbors.
