Sbarro’s roots go back to Naples, Italy where for Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro the art of crafting Italian cuisine was a way of life. The couple and their three sons, Mario, Joseph and Anthony, immigrated to America in 1956 to pursue their dream of owning a successful business in the U. S. Their Sbarro Italian Delicatessen in Brooklyn, N.Y. was well received by the local community and was the first of what would grow to become over 1,000 Sbarro restaurants. Sbarro was purchased in 2007 by MidOcean Partners. In November 2011 Sbarro successfully emerged from a Chapter 11 reorganization filed earlier in the year and is currently owned by a Group of Institutional Investors.
The Sbarro name is synonymous with delicious Italian food that customers can count on for quality and taste. The company’s 8,000 employees, continue Gennaro and Carmela’s tradition of providing authentic Italian dishes and flavors in Sbarro restaurants around the world.
At Sbarro, we serve fresh, traditional Italian cuisine that our cooks prepare in exhibition kitchens while guests relax in a casual atmosphere. Our famous pizza is only the beginning of the Sbarro culinary adventure. We offer sumptuous entrees, pastas, salads, sandwiches, and homemade desserts - tastes to fit every palate.
Our contemporary Italian design, with sleek finishes, bright lighting, and an open kitchen is offset by cozy seating to create an environment that is interesting, lively and comfortable. Friendly, attentive service is what makes Sbarro the perfect place for social, business and group dining.
