“When he was a little boy he had a dream. To become a pizzaiolo and take his pizzas to an even bigger dream. The american dream.”
…and he did so. Gino Sorbillo is making his highest dream become reality. The Sorbillo clan is opening their first location this week in the heart of Little Italy, where else?!
His efforts paid off. His believes and what is important to make the best pizza are real. Protection and respect of his territory to export in the most accurate way to one of the most competitive cities in the world when it comes to the food industry.
He is ready to tell the story of his family, to make New Yorkers try Italy’s most famous pizza in the world.
While writing this article, Gino himself shared on his Instragam stories, yes he’s all about his social media chanels too, that Unesco has recently announced the recongnition of pizza makers job as a Italian heritage – so Hurray & Congrats to all pizzaioli!
When I met Gino at ‘Cibo a Regola D’Arte last month I was amazed to meet such helpful and available guy he was but most of all how down to earth.
His talk was al about genuinity, respect and love for his home territory. To the point of publicly stating so in front of politians his commintment as citizen and enterpreneur.
His energy is contagious, his smile is sincere and his arrival in New York City is happening because of his determination of fulfilling that young boy’s dream. He is very aware of what the city has to give and take. But so far the feedback of opening trials and and opening night have proven a success.
The Sorbillo’s brother received the visit of New York’s Mayor, Mr. De Blasio, as their friendship goes back a few years back when tey met back in Naples while the De Blasio family was holidaying in the souht. Media coverage has been pretty full including the famous CBSNews channel of all NYC yellow cabs!
I can’t wait to be back in the Big Apple and enjoy a good slice with my New Yorker friends.
I wish Gino & family the most amazing time on their new adventure.
