NYC’s Oldest Pizzeria
While it’s long been a part of pizza lore that Lombardi’s
was the oldest known pizzeria in the United States, statistician and researcher Peter Regas has found advertisements for Filippo Milone-owned pizzerias such as Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba from 1903.
Regas also came to believe that Milone helped to open a pizzeria at the same address as the iconic Lombardi’s in 1898.
