The Cioffi Tradition
In 1958 Carmen and Antonietta Cioffi moved to the United States from Naples, Italy. They worked hard for many years, and opened a pizzeria in 1963 at 986 Stuyvesant Avenue in Union, New Jersey. Their daughter, Maddalena was born in 1956 and son, Carmen in 1962.
The family worked long hours at the pizzeria establishing a loyal following that continues today. In 1966 another son, Joseph, was born and the family could only dream of what was to come.
In 1974 Carmen, Sr. moved the pizzeria to 929 Stuyvesant Avenue and introduced a full-service restaurant featuring the finest in homemade Italian dishes. The comfortable atmosphere attracted customers from all over the community as Cioffi’s In Union quickly became a landmark. A few years later an express take out section was added along with a private party room to accommodate the requests for on premises catering.
Presently, Cioffi’s also specializes in off premises catering. The Cioffi Family celebrates over 50 years in business and wishes to thank you and your family for all the years of support and loyalty.
