Garlic Bread and Pizza



In 1969, Joe Longo, following his dream of owning a family restaurant, Mentor Ohio best pizza and Italian foodleft his produce manager’s position at Pick-N-Pay Supermarkets. He and his wife Patricia (Tootie), living in Mentor, purchased the former Campana’s Ferris Wheel Pizza at Rt. 306 and Lakeshore Boulevard and the first Longo's Pizza opened its doors.

Believing the keys to success are: using fresh ingredients, providing good value, offering friendly service, and supporting the community, Joe and Tootie Longo were able to grow and add a second Longo’s Pizza location six years later.
Joey's Italian Restaurant in Madison and Chardon OhioIn 1975, the Longos opened their second Longo’s Pizza in the former Madison post office building, next to the current Joey’s Italian Grille, and in 1980, Longos expanded further by adding their
Mentor Avenue location.

Italian CuisineTheir expanding restaurant business provided Joe and Tootie the opportunity to further the family dream by involving children Tina and Joey. The children took to the business eagerly, and added a fresh, youthful approach to their father’s core values.
Cater Cleveland OhioAs a result, the Longo’s brand now has expanded to include Joey’s Italian Grille in Madison and Chardon, Cater To You Catering Company and Pastina Rustic Italian restaurant in Mentor.

Tina Longo's Pastina Rustic ItalianTheir pizza and pasta sauces, made the same today as they were in 1969, are derived from the Sicilian recipes of Joe’s mother and grandmother. Keeping their commitment to the community, Longo’s, Joey’s, and Pastina restaurants all use locally grown produce and poultry as well as fresh hand-cut toppings, on all pizzas and entrees. All sauces, soups and dressings are made fresh daily, and their hand-breaded chicken tenders are never frozen.

The Longo family would like to sincerely thank you for your continued support, as they look forward to being a part of your community for many years to come.
