In the 40 years since the first Papa Gino's opened we've become New England's premier Italian restaurant chain in the Quick Service Restaurant industry. You can get Papa's signature quality and unique flavor at over 175 Papa Gino's Pizzerias.
Papa Gino's began nearly 40 years ago as a single East Boston pizza shop. When the family of Papa Gino's founder, Michael Valerio, sailed from Italy to Boston in 1936, they brought with them authentic Italian family recipes handed down through generations. These were the recipes Michael and his wife, Helen, used when they opened their first pizzeria, Piece O' Pizza. This restaurant soon became known throughout Boston as the place to go for pizza of superior quality and unique flavor.
Papa Gino’s is the Northeast’s premier Italian restaurant chain in the Quick Service Restaurant industry. Average sales at Papa Gino’s have exceeded expectations. We serve 1.1 million people every month, 60% of whom visit at least three times per month.
