Gouverneur Chamber of Commerce Celebrating 110 Years of Service 1908-2018
Nick Ciambra has been a pizza-guy since he started working in a friend's pizzeria at the age of 19. Making pizzas and delicious Italian food was his calling, so in 1990, he opened his first shop in Clyde, New York. It was so popular, he sold the business and moved to Warsaw, New York to open another pizzeria.
A few years later, in 1996, Nick and his family purchased a pizzeria in Gouverneur, New York called "Jo and Vinnie." It had been in business since 1987. On November 1, 1996, New York Pizzeria opened in Gouverneur. When Nick purchased "Joe and Vinnie," the shop was small, with only a few employees. Nick changed everything, recipes, staff, and even the space.
In 2000, Nick and his family decided to buy the building and the business has been expanding ever since. From three employees, New York Pizzeria now has 17 employees plus the Ciambra family. Come in and try anything from the menu and you'll know why the business is so successful.
In December of 2010, Nick bought Soluri Pizzeria in Brownville and started the transformation process again. A new restaurant, Nonna Dina Pizzeria, opened in January of 2011, with the same menu and recipes as New York Pizzeria. Vita and Joe, Nick's sister and brother-in-law are partners and managers. Nonna Dina Pizzeria aims to please with the best ingredients around.
Watertown, NY is home to another of Nick's pizzerias, Original Italian Pizza - OIP. All three restaurants serve the BEST PIZZA IN THE NORTH COUNTRY.
