Our Story

Raised around his grandparent’s butcher stores in Newark, New Jersey, Jerry Gialanella found a passion for food early in his life. As a teenager, he was blessed to be able to pursue his passion and work in food with his family’s support. This led him to open his first pizzeria in 1992, called Pizza & Sandwich Express, in Little Falls, New Jersey. After 15 years of good business and even better food, he sold the business in 2007 and moved to South Jersey to open Pizza & Panini in 2008.

With God as the driving force, Jerry runs Pizza & Panini through hard work and passion alongside his wife and daughter. They love what they do and make sure their food always shows it. With many years of experience under their belt, they look forward to many more years of happiness and success serving New Jersey.
