Pontillos History – Since 1947

Travel anywhere through Western New York and you’ll notice a large number of businesses owned by Italian-Americans.

From 1870 through 1920, more than 4 million Italians immigrated to America through Ellis Island, so our state has one of the highest concentrations of Italian-owned businesses in the country.

In 1897, the first espresso bar opened in New York City.  Pizza fans know that the first pizzeria in America opened at Lombardi’s in 1905.

Given that legacy of coffee and pizza, it’s appropriate that Pontillo’s Pizzeria is located across the street from Starbuck’s Coffee, in Parkway Plaza, just one block north of Canandaigua Lake.

The Pontillo family opened its first restaurant in Batavia in 1947.  Pontillo’s has 18 locations throughout Western New York, all owned by local residents.

In Canandaigua, the owner’s name is Jeff.  His crew has t-shirts with fun slogans.  They all work hard cranking out pizzas, wings, subs, salads and calzones.  Pontillo’s even sells gluten-free pizza.

They offer dining and take out, but no delivery.
