About Savarino’s Pizza
Serving Customers Since 1955
Our Founder, Biagio (Bill) Savarino was born in a small Italian town of San Biagio Platani, Sicily. At a young age, Bill came to America and settled in Chicago with his family. He opened his first pizzeria on Chicago’s Southeast Side at the age of 23. Soon after in 1973, Bill formed a partnership with his Uncle Tony and together they built up Capri’s Pizza into one of the most well known pizzerias in Chicago. From the time they were small children, Bill Savarino would take his kids to work and teach them the family business. From this experience, the Savarino Brothers learned and gained their passion in the Pizza and Restaurant business.
The Savarinos continue their ownership and full involvement in the operation of the Capri’s Pizza in Whiting, Indiana, but now they look forward to meeting many friendly faces that will become just as loyal as their Southeast Chicago and Northwest Indiana customers. Our goal is to make Savarino’s Pizza a household name in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago by bringing to them the same secrets and famous recipes from Capri’s Pizza and incorporating them into Savarino Pizza. We look forward to many successful years in the Southwest Suburbs!
