EntranceFrank Savario Catalino introduced his pizza shop in one of Portsmouth's tiniest buildings in 1990. Open just three hours a day, the shop is a family affair. Frank's real Italian pizza is one of city's trade secrets. His calzones are gigantic, stuffed full.

Frank SavarioWhat kind of guy is Frank? Well his olives are big tasty black Italian olives,
and he uses them whole, not cut into teeny pieces. He makes his own sauces and dough, uses great cheeses
and the best veggies and meats.

The shop was a means, Frank says, "to be with the family and help put the kids through school." We're glad he's still here. He offers red sauce, white garlic and green pesto pizza in thin or thick crust in four sizes. But don't show up late! Frank likes to lock the door at 8:30pm sharp.
