Bellucci Pizza is a neighborhood pizzeria serving Astoria. Everything is made in house or locally sourced from the finest artisans. We don’t pay for advertising and we don’t use 3rd-party delivery apps. Our food is made with love and goes directly from our shop to your home.
In 1901 Pasquale (Patsy) Bellucci arrived in New York with his eldest daughter Filomena. They opened the Bellucci Bakery on Metropolitan Ave. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn The Bellucci family had been bakers in Tufino (a municipality of Naples) since the 1700s.
In 1907, Gennaro Lombardi began an apprenticeship at the Bellucci Bakery where he learned how to bake bread and pizza.
In 1910, Gennaro Lombardi married Filomena Bellucci at Mt. Carmel Church in Williamsburg. Two years later, Pasquale put his son-in-law in business by opening Lombardi’s Pizza at 53 Spring Street.
Lombardi’s is considered to be one of the first pizzerias opened in the United States. The original Lombardi’s closed with the death of Filomena Bellucci Lombardi in 1964.
In 1994, Andrew Bellucci re-opened Lombardi’s Pizza down the block at 32 Spring Street with partners Gerry Lombardi and John Brescio, resurrecting the Lombardi name with high quality pizza made without compromise.
After a 16-year pizza exile, Andrew returned to the ovens in 2013, introducing the NY slice to Malaysia, followed by stints at Joe’s Pizza in Shanghai, New York and Ann Arbor and Executive Chef at Rubirosa.
Andrew is thrilled to be in Astoria, continuing the Bellucci tradition of making high quality pizza and Italian specialties
