Family with 70+ years of restaurant experience creates New York-style Italian cuisine with generations-old recipes
About This Deal
About GG's of New York
Old habits die hard for the Delgardios. The family opened its first pizzeria in 1937, setting up shop along Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. This New York connection remained so strong that when the Delgardio family opened a restaurant in Fort Lauderdale in 1976, they chose to name it GG's of New York.
The third generation of family members now runs the casual, family-style pizzeria and Italian eatery, using decades-old recipes to prepare everything from lasagna and manicotti to shrimp scampi and veal Milanese. Thick, Sicilian-style pizzas can emerge from the ovens with as many as 18 different toppings, or even handfuls of the available gourmet toppings, including steak and calamari.
From the red-checkered tablecloths to the black-and-white photographs on the brick walls, GG's of New York aims to create an inviting, homestyle vibe. According to the Sun Sentinel, "it's like having a meal at your Italian grandparents' home—even if you're not Italian."
