THE PASSION FOR PIZZA
The original Pal Joey's started the summer of 1958 at 616 Forest Ave. Staten Island, NY. The original owners were Laura and Joseph Andreano. A small pizza shop with a jukebox. On Friday nights the line of customers stretched out the door, people were coming from dances and basketball games. Slices were sold for 15 cents. Eddie started working at the young age of 15 in 1968 washing dishes. At the end of 1969 the landlord wanted to raise Josephs rent $50. Big mistake. Joseph went out and bought his own building. The new home for Pal Joey's was 538 Forest ave. Eddie learned the restaurant business bought Pal Joey's in 1986. Pal Joey's continued to be a staple of the neighborhood until 2004. Eddie and Denise would like to bring back that tradition of neighborhood New York style pizza. We hope you enjoy your experience at Pal Joey's.
