Fresh ingredients meet time honored family recipes. Taste the rich Sbarro tradition in every bite of pizza and pasta. Mangia Italiano! From New York style thin crust to gourmet deep dish pizzas, and zesty pastas to spicy specialty entrees, Sbarro is the world’s first last name in Italian food! In 1956, the Sbarro family opened its first Italian grocery in Brooklyn. The success led to more locations and ultimately the birth of the Sbarro restaurant. The goal was simply to offer fresh, delicious Italian food in an open kitchen that allows for fast self service. It’s a concept that worked… and continues to in over 1,000 Sbarros worldwide! Sbarro pizzas boast hand-tossed dough made fresh daily, topped with the finest meats, vegetables and cheeses. Our 100% semolina pastas are served with signature sauces and a homemade breadstick. And from Chicken Parmiagiana to Sausage & Peppers, our specialty entrees are made from favorite family recipes.
