Our Story
1959 where It All Began

Our family has been working in the restaurant industry for a long time. Today we are the fourth generation and we can proudly boast our reputation as a famous restaurant in our area. We are famous for the fabulous authentic cuisine, the professional chef and the dedicated staff. Choose any dish from the menu that can help you try the best taste. It all began December 13, 1959, when Luigi Longobardi, who moved with his wife and his six children from Castellammare di Stabia (Na) in the city of Vigevano (Pv), the first pizzeria in the city near the beautiful Piazza Ducale, after opening and started over the years ten pizzerias as a family and with the succession of generations, we’ve expanded the level by opening pizzerias in France, Palma de Mallorca and in now in England. Now the restaurant “Il Grande” by il Capitano Angelo Viaro, comes from the desire to carry on the family tradition and create something different, which could go beyond the current standards, and this is the reason that leads us to invest a lot in research.
