MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- It's all about family and loyal customers at Johnny's Pizza in Mount Vernon where owner Joseph Piscopo said he's seen generations of Westchesterites come through his doors.
"We want to thank all of our loyal customers," he said of Johnny's Daily Voice "DVlicious" win for "Best Pizza in Westchester." (Go here for previous story.)
Added his wife, Maria, "Many of our customers have become friends as well as family. We thank them all that we are still in existence."
Johnny's, named after Piscopo's oldest brother, remains a family-run operation with sons Joe Junior and Ricky behind the counter and daughters Conchetta and Tina waiting tables. (Two of the four grandchildren are also starting to help.)
On July 4, the pizzeria will celebrate 73 years in business.
New to the dining room: the DVlicious certificate which was awarded to the family by Jeanne Muchnick, Daily Voice features editor.
