What is NY Style Pizza?

Our Italian Roots

Giuseppe Migliori emigrated from Frosinone, Italy, on the SS Prinzess Irene, arriving at New York’s Ellis Island in 1907. He was eleven years old, accompanied only by his brother Rocco (age 16) and sister Sarafina (age 9). Just two years earlier, the first pizzeria in the country opened in lower Manhattan, serving what we now know as New York style pizza. In honor of our “Nonni”, Giuseppe, we bring Mount Pleasant, Migliori’s authentic New York style pizza, pasta and vino. Giuseppe’s son, Giulio Migliori, attended medical school in Bologna, Italy, where he and his wife, Gloria, started their family in the 1950s. The last of their six children is Don Migliori, who with his wife Joanne, lives here in Mount Pleasant. Joanne grew up in Philadelphia, PA, and Don grew up in Providence, RI, both rich in Italian culture and history.

Our Why

The heart of our restaurant and our why is Jill Marie Migliori. Each week thousands of custom pizza boxes, “Made by Special Hands”, are folded with love by Jill and her team. We pride ourselves in employing those with special abilities. This special team spreads joy with the never-ending smiles they provide to each person that walks through the doors at Migs! We hope that when you walk into Migliori’s, the smell of delicious Italian dishes and a friendly greeting make you feel at home. We mix, knead and portion our fresh dough daily. With our open-air kitchen, guests can watch our chefs toss and then bake our hand-crafted pizzas in our unique rotating oven. We use only fresh toppings with high-quality cheeses.

Our pasta and salads are also made with the best ingredients. For those dining in with us or waiting for a take-out order, we offer wine and beer on tap and in bottles. Migliori’s is inspired by Italian pizzerias and trattorias, but most of all, by the recipes and traditions of our family. Our goal as restaurateurs is not only to provide our community with amazing food and exceptional service, but to create an experience that all ages and backgrounds can enjoy! From a family Sunday dinner to a child’s make-your-own-pizza birthday party, to watching the Saturday games, Migliori’s is your neighborhood restaurant the whole family can enjoy.
