The Gironda family has had the pleasure of serving the Sandhills for more than thirty great years. It all began when the Gironda Brothers originally from the small town of San Vito, Italy located in the region of Calabria, opened Vito’s Pizzeria and Ristorante in July of 1980 in Southern Pines.
Through years of hard work the brothers built a great following thanks to the wonderfully loyal and supportive locals. As their reputation as a great local authentic Pizzeria and Italian restaurant grew, there became the need to expand. After several expansions to their Broad Street Southern Pines location, there came an opportunity for opening a second location. In 1991 they opened Vito’s Pizzeria of Pinehurst on Highway 5.
Lastly in 1999, they completed the construction of a free standing building for the Vito’s of Southern Pines location, just a couple short blocks down Broad Street from the original Vito’s location. It goes without saying that if it weren’t for support of all our great clientele, neighbors, and friends, Vito’s wouldn’t have come to be the long standing establishment for Italian food and New York Style Pizza here in the Sandhills of North Carolina.
We’d like to thank all of the wonderful members of this community who’ve made this area such a special place for us to live, work and call our home.
Many thanks from all of us at Vito’s and the Gironda family.
