Giafano's Pizzeria in Clementon

Giofano’s Pizzeria, a gem in Clementon

Giofano’s Pizzeria has its roots deeply embedded in Sicilian heritage. Established in 2009 by Roberto Faltz, the restaurant is located at 1353 Blackwood-Clementon Road in Clementon, Camden County. However, its story begins even earlier, tracing back to Roberto’s mother, who immigrated from Sicily in her early twenties, followed by the rest of the family. Roberto, born and raised in Brooklyn, later moved with his mother to Voorhees in 1982, where she single-handedly raised four children, ensuring they all received a college education.

Faltz’s connection to Sicilian culture runs deep. Growing up in a household steeped in Sicilian traditions, he developed a profound appreciation for Sicilian cuisine and heritage. Fluent in Sicilian, Roberto inherited a treasure trove of family recipes passed down through generations, which he now incorporates into Giofano’s Pizzeria’s menu.

Giofano’s Pizzeria boasts a menu brimming with homemade delights. From hand breaded chicken cutlets to meatballs baked according to Roberto’s mother’s recipe, every dish is crafted with love and tradition. Additionally, the restaurant even bakes its own turkey in-house for turkey sandwiches, further enhancing the quality of its offerings.

Giofano’s Pizzeria takes pride in its bread selection, opting for denser bread from Cacia’s Bakery for most items, which imparts a unique texture and flavor. However, for the focaccia sandwiches, the restaurant prepares all focaccia bread in-house, ensuring freshness and quality in every bite.
