Gioacchino Anile or “Jack” as he is known to friends, customers and even family members, came to America in 1996 with a dream of owning and running his own restaurant-pizzeria. With a strong background of many chefs in his family, he has had the best teachers ever. Plus, all mothers and grandmothers in Sicily are the true chefs. Growing up in Sicily, mealtime is very important which is why Paesano’s serves with heart.
In 1999, after 3 years of working as a pizza man, Jack along with his partner Giuseppe Conigliaro finally bought a small Pizzeria formally “Franks” in New Freedom. As any business in the beginning they had their struggles, but with determination and high hopes their business was a great success.
In 2004, Jack and Giuseppe bought a bigger building and moved the business across the street. They finally created the official business name “Paesano’s”, which means “friends from the same town and country.”
It’s long and hard hours, sometimes even on holidays, but making and serving quality food to amazing patrons gives Jack and Giuseppe such a great satisfaction.
Paesano’s specializes in stromboli, pizza, subs, dinners, salad and delicious desserts.
Thank you to our loyal customers.
