Reginella Pizzeria and Ristorante has opened in Gastonia offering high quality Italian meals at excellent prices! If you love Italian food, you will love Reginellas!!! Owners Tony Coppola and Raffaele Falciai bring many years of experience to the area from owning other restaurants. Raffaele owned and operated an Italian restaurant in Firenze Italy and Tony worked alongside his father for many years as they owned and operated successful Brothers Pizza Restaurants from the Eddington New Jersey area!
Tony is the head chef and there's a special house dressing he has created and it has become a hit among customers! His Reginella sauce has an Italian base with olive oil, tomato and garlic. It’s a house dressing that goes well on every type of cuisine! You can use it on grilled meat, on fish, and it’s gluten free with no preservatives added. There is actually a company that sells it nationally. Tony also claims that the homemade cannoli is just like his grandma used to make! There are also other outstanding desserts as well based on Tony's family recipes!
At Reginellas, Tony and Raffaele pride themselves on providing fresh pizza dough made in-house, three rotating varieties of pasta prepared fresh every day, and meat from Piscataway, New Jersey. Those ingredients will be used within a menu that includes staples such as pizza, homemade sandwiches, and a variety of classic Italian dishes.
The restaurant is opened from 10:30am to 9:00pm, Sunday through Saturday.
Be sure to stop by and enjoy wonderful, authentic Italian food without paying high prices!!!
