Little Joe’s Pizzeria and Restaurante was established by Pat Albergo and Joe Pierre on 63rd Street on Chicago’s south side in 1958. The doors opened on the same day that Pat’s daughter Suzi was born. (A busy day for Pat!) It was a staple business on 63rd Street for 33 years and a gathering place for many families and neighbors. The little girl that was born on the same day that Little Joe’s opened met her future husband Abby in the kitchen on 63rd Street. Suzi says that whenever Abby cooked for her, there were always hearts made of carrots or cheese on her plate, and rest they say is history. Now, after years of dedication and hard work Abby was able to purchase the restaurant from his father-in-law. Abby and Suzi now run the day to day operations.
