About the restaurant

The Pizza House was opened on 13th May 1977, and instantly became a popular place for the residents of Portsmouth. The restaurant soon became known outside of the city, diners started visiting from all over...even HRH Prince Andrew popped in for a meal in the first few years of opening. The restaurant received national recognition when the Pizza House won the Pizza & Pasta Association's National Restaurant of the Year award in 1989. The restaurant has since become a landmark in the City, visited by generations of families, and is now Portsmouth's longest running Italian.

About Giuseppe & sons

Giuseppe was born in Sardinia and grew up in a little town called Lanusei. In his teenage years Giuseppe decided to go to catering school. After completing catering school he then went to work across Europe in restaurants and hotels. He visited the UK for the first time in his early 20s, coming for a two week holiday - and ended up setting up his home and business here. He opened the Pizza House in 1977, and has been in the restaurant ever since.

His two sons are both an integral part of the Pizza House. His oldest son Christian started working weekends at the restaurant as a young teenager. While still working weekends at the restaurant, he went on to the London Institute (University of the Arts), where he graduated with a B.A. (Hons.) in Journalism. After finishing in London, he went on to graduate with a Masters Degree in Politics and International Relations at the University of Southampton. With over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry he is the General Manager of the Pizza House.

Giuseppe's other Son Adam also started working his weekends at the restaurant when he finished school. He went on to follow his father's footsteps and went to study catering at Southdown's College where he qualified with an NVQ in Hospitality & Catering. He then carried on studying to qualify with an NVQ in Customer Service.

With a combination of over 70 years of hospitality experience these three will make sure you have a wonderful meal...
