An American Story

Our Start

Aldo Di Puorto and his wife came to the United States from Italy in the 1980’s with a dream for a future. After working in the restaurant business for a few years, they opened their first restaurant in 1987 on Main Street in Thomasville, NC. Since opening his first location over 30 years ago, he has opened an additional seven locations. Today, he operates three of those locations with the help of his two sons, Gino and Raffaele. 

Our Art

The Di Puorto family-owned business continues thanks to its longtime customer base and loyal . Their goal has always been to use homemade Italian recipes and make their clientele and staff feel like family. Over the years, they have used the finest and freshest ingredients so they never sacrifice on quality. Aldo, Gino and Raffaele are thankful for everyone’s support and business.

Our Future

Elizabeth’s Pizza in Thomasville (Liberty Drive), Elizabeth’s Pizza Express in Denton and Elizabeth’s Pizza Express in Lexington are  still family owned and where you will find the Di Puorto father and sons still working daily. They want their restaurants to feel like you are enjoying a homemade dinner with your family.
