In 1967, at a time when Richard Nixon was still the president, Joe’s Pizza became the first pizzeria to open in the town of New Canaan. Originally located on East Avenue, the pizzeria was opened by Neapolitan Joe Colella alongside his wife Annunziata “Nunzia” Colella.

Joe and Nunzia made special lasagnas, manicotti, pizza dough, the sauce, and eggplant parm from scratch. The meatball recipe still made each day at Joe’s Pizza is the very one Nunzia brought with her from Italy.

Over the years Joe’s Pizza moved twice. Joe’s was moved to Forest Street, which today shares a rear entrance area with Joe’s Pizza’s current location on Locust Avenue, where Joe’s moved and has been since 1995.

More than fifty years later Joe’s is now run by Lorenzo Collela and continues the tradition of serving up homemade pizzas, pastas, grinders, salads and entrees to hungry New Canaanites. Through Superbowls, Halloween nights and providing homemade beef stew to first responders during blizzard, Joe’s Pizza is the best pizza in town!
