OUR DAD'S LEGACY

Carlo’s Pizza is the Accardi Brothers’ & our Mom's loving tribute to our Dad. Carlo Accardi opened the doors to his first business, which he named Johnny’s Pizza after his father, in 1985, and began making pizzas at the corner of 17th St and Surf Ave, Wildwood, NJ - just a few blocks away from the World Famous Wildwood Boardwalk.

Our Mom and Dad met at the pizza shop, and soon were inseparable - working together on long summer nights as the perfect pizza making duo. While working at the shop, they also started building a family together. In total, Mom and Dad raised seven children at the shop. There we learned how to recreate Dad’s pizza, and also learned to emulate the qualities that made us and customers alike love Dad so much.

Dad’s memory is shared, celebrated & continued through both his children and his pizza. We hope you enjoy dining with us in our pizza shop here today, as much as we enjoyed growing up in our Dad’s all those years ago.

Now That’s Amore!
