Petrini’s Pizza brings some Italy to Los Al

Gene and Blair Pietrini, and son Landon, have brought an authentic sense of Italy to Los Alamitos with the opening of their Pietrini’s Italian Napoletana Pizza restaurant.

Blair is a long-time resident of the area, a Los Al alum with connections to Cottonwood Church and Graceful Hearts charity.   Gene grew up in Chicago in a Sicilian family and definitely knows his Italian pizza, a passion rekindled when Blair bought him his own pizza stone in the mid-1980s.  Their son, Landon, inherited the appreciation of all things pizza and perfected it by attending the well-known Tony Gemignani’s International School of Pizza in San Francisco to become a certified Pizzaiolo (pizza maker).

The Event-News Enterprise has a nice story on the restaurant and its formal ribbon-cutting in coordination with the Los Al and Cypress Chambers of Commerce.

And the Epoch Times did a feature last year on Gene and Landon as they prepared to open their restaurant.
