Chef-Owner Dave from Queens

Part entertainer, part pizza dough fanatic, Dave embodies New York City ambition, humor, and gratitude through and through. Larger-than-life storytelling meets charm as Dave regales us with tales of his Italian ancestors’ perilous journey to New York, gifting Rihanna (of all things) an um-bur-rella at legendary hotspot Da Silvano, training under pizza royalty Paulie Gee, and his plans for worldwide pizza domination.

Hear how this Queens restaurant owner once envisioned his future around a pizza oven and how he has created viral videos of New York City’s baked-in craziness to attract visitors from around the world.
