  • An Italian Tradition

    "Stefano" is Stefano Grizaffi, born in 1896 in Vallelunga Sicily, Italy. Over the years, Stefano and his wife Lucia DiMaggio Grizaffi crafted handmade Italian delicacies that filled the neighborhood with tantalizing aromas and escalating envy. It was their personal recipes that helped Stefano and Lucia build a reputation for crafting the finest artisan Italian cuisine. Generations later, Stefano's secrets immigrated to America when his grandson landed in New York and eventually opened his first deli and pizzeria. To honor his inspiration, the place was named Stefano's and carried all of the family's favorite recipes for the Old World. People from all over New Jersey and New York flocked for their delicious pizzas, calzones, Stromboli and stuffed breads. To meet increasing demands, Stefano's grew to where they are today – a foodservice company and food service manufacturer serving most U.S. cities the original Stefano Old World Italian artisan cuisine.
