Original Brothers Pizza and Italian Restaurant Inc. is more than a name..it's a tradition passed on to family for two generations. From humble beginnings in New York, Anthony Pistone and his brothers worked hard to build what is known today as the icon of pizza in Happy Valley. Having a love for the area, Anthony decided to call State College his home and with that he grew his business to other locations in Centre county and beyond. Spreading his locations from Millhiem to Zion, Beech Creek to Milesburg, Pittsburg to Altoona and not forgetting where it all began in Centre county, at the Nittany Mall. Anthony Pistone has since retired in State College but the tradition lives on with his daughter Josie and her husband of 24 years, Edward. Hard work, dedication and quality ingredients is what produces a quality product.
"What I have learned from my father is invaluable", says Josie. "Growing up in the restaurant business I watched as he tirelessly worked hard on creating fresh, quality menu items. Dough was made daily, cheeses shredded, quality meats cut daily, lasagna made fresh and so much more. But it was not only that, he was always able to greet everyone with a smile and truly appreciated their patronage." Today, we continue all the same traditions at our 3 locations.
