Patsy’s Pizzeria is considered a New York City landmark, establishing itself in the first half of last century as a family style, old-fashioned neighborhood restaurant. Patsy’s Pizzeria catered to the growing population of Italian immigrants who longed for the cuisine of their homeland in a casual family style atmosphere and helped make pizza a staple of New York City.
The atmosphere, style and cuisine at Patsy’s Pizzeria began attracting many popular and famous personalities. Luminaries like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett became regulars. In addition, its prime uptown location made it a convenient stop for famous Yankees such as Phil Rizzutto, Joe Dimaggio and Yogi Berra. Patsy Lancieri had developed a huge following and East Harlem was the place to go.
Lancieri’s legacy is honored and cultivated to this day by the current owners Frank and Jon. Check out the grand opening on September 10 to enjoy some pizza and welcome the New York City family to Rockland County.
