Italian food has always been recognized as one of the finest of all, from their delicious pasta in white sauce to their exquisite combinations of ingredients and flavors for pizza.

Since we were kids, my brother and I grew up in New York watching, learning and enjoying good Italian food thanks to our mother, who was really good at preparing various dishes. Cooking was always her passion and she lit that fire in us as well. We were always spending time in the kitchen willing to learn how to prepare delicious italian dishes under her guidance.

Our favorite dish was, with no doubt, the New-York style pizza. It is very different than other pizzas and tastes way better. With time, we started experimenting with new different ingredients and toppings, and we ended up with some really good pizza recipes.

After a stroke that left her paralyzed for years, our mom, Estella, passed away. My brother and I decided to carry on her legacy. Our mom always dreamed about her two boys going into business together, just like her husband and brother did. After doing some research, we found the best way to honor our mothers dream.

We realized that it’s very hard, not to say impossible, to find an authentic New-York style pizzeria restaurant in Florida. And that’s how Estella’s Pizzeria was born. Our restaurant is located in Port St. Lucie, FL, and we welcome anyone who would like to try our delicious New-York style pizzas and other Italian dishes that we’re sure you’ll love!
