About Us


Back in 1927, Fioravante Santora was the first person to sell pizza in Buffalo, NY. It all started with him and his wife making peddled ice cream in their basement. His wife would make pizza from the old country for lunch and everyone that would stop to drop supplies and buy ice cream would be fed her pizza. With growing popularity, the ice cream customers soon turned to pizza customers and Santora's Pizza was born. The first Santora's Napoli Pizzeria was opened in 1927 on Seneca Street in the city of Buffalo. All of the 11 brothers and sisters joined the business and over time there were 17 pizza and wing locations throughout WNY. As time passed, most of the pizzerias went out of business or closed, all except the youngest of the 3rd generation. Today, four generations strong, with the development of Santora's Pizza Pub & Grill, our tradition and family values are stronger than ever in WNY. We are proud to be a big part of this thriving Buffalo area and to support many organizations and college athletics. We want to thank you and the many before you for keeping our family in your hearts for over 90 years.

We have taken the idea that the Santora family was the first, original marketed pizza in Buffalo, NY in 1927 and have decided to develop a beer brand that is named after such an amazing part of local history. Our 1927 brand of beer that will soon be produced in-house by 2 separate breweries, one at each of the Santora's Pizza Pub & Grill locations. Our house brew is made with the same love, history and passion that has made us who we are today.

Everyone in Buffalo, NY knows that one of best sports bars in town is Santora's Pizza Pub & Grill! The Transit Road location features over 60 different taps to enjoy while you watch the game on one of the 110-inch TVs studded throughout the restaurant. While the Millersport restaurant is a bit smaller, their 24 beers on tap are just as delicious and their 18 high-definition TVs offer just as good a view of the game. Our newest location at the Walden Galleria features 30+ beers on tap, 50+ TV's and has a 138" 2-sided video wall! The pizza and wings keep coming all night while you enjoy the performance of the Bills, Sabres or any other NHL, NFL, or college team.
