O’Scugnizzo Pizza to Open Location in South Utica
The famously delicious upside pizza that you love is getting a new home! Since 1914, O'Scugnizzo has had a reputation for quality and now over 100 years later, they're still producing a stellar product.
The History of O'Scugnizzo
O'scugnizzo Pizzeria was founded in 1914 by Eugeno Burlino. He only sold tomato pie (a pizza without mozzarella cheese) and they only cost a nickel. He was then succeeded by his son, Angelo "Chops" Burline, who made O'scugnizzo what it is today. Almost 90 years later, O'scugnizzo is still in business in the beautiful city of Utica and is now run by his son Steven Burline.
The new location will be opening on Genesee St. near the Hess gas station and the Raspberries in South Utica. You may know the building as the former Nino's Pizza. Now, the only evidence that the famous pizza place is moving there is the sign reading "coming soon" and "now hiring." That's good enough evidence for me! You can join the O'Scugnizzo team by calling 525-1679. There is no word yet on when the new store will be open, but as soon as more information becomes available, we will keep you informed.
