Our Story (Of Art And Pizza)
Along time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…just kidding it was really only the late 80’s. Take one part artistic family, topped with years of slinging pies in the corporate pizza game, layer on a hearty work ethic and finish it all with an entrepreneurial awakening and you’ve got the recipe for a fresh and original change in the pizza landscape. The idea was and is that pizza doesn’t have to be the same old production line pepperoni and mushroom affair. It can be elevated, refined, fun, and artistic!
So the journey began. An art gallery that featured a gourmet pizza restaurant, not just any gourmet pizzas but ones that were inspired by the masters. The possibilities were endless. From a white pizza named after the master of black and white MC Escher to a Mexican pizza with salsa sauce named after the master of Southwestern landscapes, Georgia O’Keeffe. The first 40-seat location in the 1900 building in Downtown Melbourne opened its doors in 1989. Fast-forward 28 years, five locations and voila, you’re sitting here reading about a crazy idea to start a restaurant that’s all about art and pizza!
Now-a-days, you can find this creative eatery located right on Central Park in the Avenue Viera. Great for a date night out, dinner with the family, or brunch with your pals, Pizza Gallery and Grill has it all!
