A new pizzeria that specializes in customer service recently opened up on East Tremont Avenue, replacing another pizzeria at the same location.
Last month, Bronx Pizzeria, a at 3579 E. Tremont Avenue, officially opened it’s doors to the community, taking over Vito’s Pizzeria, which was in business for just over a year.
Bronx Pizzeria offers a variety of soups, salads, appetizers, pastas, sandwiches and calzones, aside from their pizza selection, of course.
Popular entrees include chicken parmigiana and chicken francese.
The pizza selection seems endless. The variety of different types of pizza includes plain pizza pies, either 18 inches (large) or 16 inches (small), as well as gourmet pizza, which includes buffalo chicken, barbecue chicken, grandma, Sicilian, salad, veggie, eggplant, sausage and peppers as well as white pizza, among other delicious choices.
Single slices and personal pies are also available for customers. Sicilians are served both square and round.
Pizza toppings include spinach, broccoli, bacon, ham, eggplant, Ricotta cheese, pepperoni, sausage, peppers, mushrooms, onions, anchovies and extra cheese, of course!
Bronx Pizzeria uses Grande Cheese in much of its cuisine, an ingredient considered by many as ‘top of the line.’
Beginning in the late spring or early summer, the pizzeria will also begin selling Breyer’s ice cream and Marino’s italian ices.
Bronx Pizzeria offers free deliveries, with a $13 minimum.
The pizzeria will also provide curbside deliveries, where an order will be brought out to your car. This service would eliminate double parking.
Along with cash, Bronx Pizzeria takes Visa, MasterCard and Discover, as well as debit cards. The previous pizzeria, Vito’s, was a cash-only establishment.
Bronx Pizzeria has not yet had an official grand opening, but during the Throggs Neck St. Patrick’s Day Parade they distributed ‘Bronx Pizzeria’ T-shirts, provided face painting, a clown, a magician and other festivities for children.
They even offer deals to local schools, who will not be charged for two-liter sodas or paper goods with their purchases. Schools will also receive discounts on pies.
Four of Bronx Pizzeria’s current employees have previous experience working at Filomena’s Pizza & Pasta, a pizzeria located on City Island.
“I started this establishment in this area because I felt like it could do well here - and so far, so good,” said Chris Schiulaz, a long-time Country Club resident who previously worked for the NYC Department of Environmental Protection for 30 years and has owned a Bronx-based construction company for the last 20 years. “
I’m a people person - I love to see my customers happy and that is what has happened here since we’ve opened.”
Bronx Pizzeria’s hours are Mondays through Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 9 p.m.
