Born out of Southern Italy, Giacobbe Stolfe was only 13 years old when he arrived on the South Side of Chicago. Stolfe was full of grit, determination and Italian tradition - all of which he passed on to his son, Jimmy Stolfe.
In the early 60’s, Jimmy opened a Connie’s Pizzeria on 26th & Lowe where pizza became a family trade. His son Michael Stolfe spent hours in the kitchen, fine-tuning the perfect “take & bake” pizza. Michael’s perfected pizza combined the quality of a restaurant pizza with the ease of being made at home.
The final product, Giacobbino’s Pizza, pays homage to the man that ignited 55 years of pizzeria traditions which have been passed on from generation to generation and will someday be passed onto Michael’s son, Giacobbino.
