- Our Story -

It all began in 1957 with one man and a dream.

Carl Ruffalo opened his first pizzeria in Columbus Park, where Italians first settled in Kenosha. He used only the freshest ingredients for his original family recipes and cooked his pizzas on stone bottomed ovens for a perfect crispy crust. Customers flocked to his restaurant and soon The Villa D'Carlo became famous for thin crust pizza. Although times have changed, Carl's pizza has not! Today the same family recipes are used, from the dough to our slow simmered sauce and our homemade sausage...and pizzas are still cooked on the stone bottom ovens! While other pizzerias have come and gone Carl's pizza remains a Kenosha favorite.

We would like to Thank our Kenosha Community for making Carl's pizza the longest running family owned pizzeria in town! 

“Al Dente as a way of life."

is made right here in Kenosha.”

Thank you from our family to yours.......
