WE ARE LEGEND Patsy's Pizzeria, one of the oldest pizzerias in America, was first opened in NYC in 1933 by newlywed immigrants Pasquale “Patsy” and Carmella Lancieri. Patsy's Pizzeria quickly established itself as a legendary, southern-Italian, old-fashioned neighborhood eatery. Almost immediately, Patsy Lancieri's pizza and atmosphere began attracting many famous personalities, including luminaries like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett, who became regulars. In addition, its uptown location made it convenient for the Yankees. Phil Rizzutto, Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra were all frequent customers.More
