The Luca family came to New York City from Italy in 1966, and we opened our first restaurant there. We’ve launched over 150 restaurants since 1966, many in malls, offering the finest New York Style Pizza and Italian fast food cuisine possible. If you were to ask the president and CEO what words he attributes to the cornerstone of his business, he would quickly respond in his native Italian accent, “Remember your roots. Remember the aroma. Remember the importance of freshness. Now, go show the world!”

There are three main elements that define the “™ Way” and our commitment to our family – not just our personal families, but our customers, employees, managers, and owners.

I. We are committed to providing fast food that doesn’t taste fast!

provides fast food that doesn’t taste fast by blending Old-World-taste with New World convenience. What does that mean? "It means we still make our own dough from scratch every day. We use only genuine semolina pasta. You can ask any Italian, there’s nothing quite like freshly made dough and pasta. We use only the leanest meats, finest tomato sauces, and freshest vegetables to prepare our food. We use only Wisconsin's finest real mozzarella cheese, freshly grated. Grande cheese is considered the finest natural cheese around. All of our products are baked on an Italian-style hearth to ensure the flavor is sealed in,” states the president and CEO. The irresistible aroma draws you in and our delicious menu of mouth-watering meals captivates you to keep you coming back for more.

II. We are committed to quality and excellence in everything!

is committed to quality and excellence in everything – yes everything. First, our award-winning pizzas, unique calzones, panzerottis, strombolis, and special pepperoni-stuffed breadsticks ooze genuine Italian taste made from our own unique recipes using only the finest ingredients described above. “We want nothing but the best for our family, which includes you,” states the president and CEO. “We are also quite proud of the ambiance of our restaurant where our customers can eat in a cozy environment and watch television on our HDTV or listen to music. We are a step above a fast-food restaurant even though we offer good food fast.”

III. We are committed to empowering our workers to succeed.

has incentive-based systems that allow managers a healthy slice of the profits. The president states, “We believe in empowering our workers to succeed. We strive to make ours a place where employees actually want to come to work because they enjoy it. Employees who enjoy their jobs and their colleagues are better workers who provide better customer service and a better product. Through hard work and dedication, you can truly achieve. The sky's-the-limit at .” He further states, “We also won't ask our employees to do anything we haven't done ourselves. Managers don't become managers until they have spent at least three months behind the counter tossing pizza dough, scooping single slices in and out of the giant, multi-door ovens, or in the back, washing dishes. And then, only the pizza-makers with prior experience can advance quickly.”
