Our Story

Two Culinary Worlds

"Our Place or Yours?" Armando's offers the best of two Italian-inspired culinary worlds: exceptional pizza and other take-out/delivery specialties; and fine dining that makes any evening an event to remember.

But whether you choose to eat at our place or yours, you'll always know that you are in the hands of people who are passionate about creating and serving deliciously memorable food.

Freshness & Quality

It all starts with freshness - Armando's key ingredient. Our pizzas are always made on fresh in-house dough. We use premium ingredients like Uniondale mozzarella. Dine-in dishes draw on traditional and contemporary culinary themes, offering familiar "comfort foods" alongside dramatic, mouth-watering creations that explore a world of new tastes and traditions.

It's all part of our "total package" restaurant experience. From the moment our customers call or walk through the door, we are always "on" - committed to providing exceptional dining experiences that celebrate friendships and inspire memories.


We're proud of the recognition we've earned, including a People's Choice Award for Best Pizza and the Chamber of Commerce's Tourism and Hospitality Award. But the accolades we value most are the ones you share with friends and family after your own Armando's experience.

So - where to eat tonight? With Armando's the choice will always be yours; the pleasure of serving you will always be ours.


It's hard to know if a new business will succeed. In 1967, when Armando and Antonia Gerardi opened their first restaurant, they were understandably anxious. But they were absolutely certain about one thing: how to make great pizza.

By the end of the first week of operation, they were fairly sure of another thing: their restaurant was rapidly becoming a hit. Word was quickly spreading about their "secret recipes from the Old Country. "The eight-table restaurant was starting to fill up every night. It's been a popular destination ever since.

In 1974, Armando's expanded its menu to include a wider selection of Italian cuisine alongside the original-recipe pizzas. It's been a successful evolution.

Today, Armando's eight restaurants serve up a wide variety of Italian cuisine in a whole new, delicious way - whether you enjoy it in our dining rooms or at home.
