Our History


History of Our Pizza Place 
Serving the Kenmore, NY & Tonawanda, NY Areas

DiPaulo's Pizzeria has been satiating the appetites of local pizza lovers since 1968! We strive to serve only the best pizza by using high quality ingredients, such as Margherita pepperoni, Sorrento cheese and our own sauce and dough recipes. The result is a taste that cannot be duplicated. With the best wings, sandwiches, salads, and pies in town, DiPaulo's is widely regarded as the best pizza place in the Kenmore and Tonawanda area!
Where it all started
DiPaulo's Pizzeria was born from the passion and hard work of two good friends, Dick and Paul. They opened the first store in 1967 on Sheridan Drive near the Sheridan Golf Course and settled on the name DiPaulo’s by combining both of their names and adding an O. Two more locations were to follow in 1968, including our current location at 571 Brighton Road.

In the early days, Dick’s mother would make all the soups, chili, cookies, and pastries. We still proudly use those recipes today! DiPaulo’s also became renowned for its breakfast menu, which became a focus for locals to gather, enjoy a delicious meal and catch up on the happenings around town. While our breakfast menu was discontinued in 2002, the relationships built over those years remain forever.
Carrying on the legacy
Mike Grieco, our current owner, joined the DiPaulo’s staff in 1972, while he was still a high school student. His dedication quickly led him to become manager until 1983, when he was approached by the original owners to purchase the business. For over 30 years, the Grieco family has continued serving the local community with top quality food and has continued the spirit of family tradition that was begun by two good friends.

We have employed hundreds of people over the years and have especially had many high school students who have come and gone. There is one staff member however who has proudly remained through it all, Dona. Dona knows most ‘regulars’ by name, and if she doesn’t know you, she soon will. With her welcoming smile, Dona epitomizes what DiPaulo’s is all about, friendly customer service!
Proud to support our community
DiPaulo’s Pizzeria began as a business between friends and that friendship evolved into a family tradition spanning nearly four decades. We remain proud to be of service to the Tonawanda community and are happy to take special orders for your school, group or organization. You can also get in touch with us for fundraising ideas.
