In 1959 Antonino “Tony” Ciaravino opened the first pizzeria in South Windsor, Ontario. With its thin crispy crust, distinctive and flavourful sauce, and fine cut pepperoni (Antonino called it sausage), his pizza legacy has truly become a Windsor institution. Today, more than 30 area pizzerias can trace their roots directly back to Antonino’s original pizza recipe. Those roots are strongest, however, at Antonino’s Original Pizza. In 1999—in tribute to his father and with the assistance of his mother Vita—Joe Ciaravino opened the first Antonino’s Original Pizza location at the corner of Howard and North Talbot Road.

Joe Ciaravino grew up in the pizza business, and at around 7 or 8 years old, he started helping out in the pizzeria his dad owned, shredding cheese, answering phones, and helping with other tasks. Years later, Joe went on to business school and received his MBA. Upon graduation and looking to start a business, he opened Antonino’s Original Pizza in South Windsor in 1999 using the original family recipes. The first store at Howard and North Talbot Rd was just 750 sq feet and strictly takeout (with delivery only for large orders). The business moved into a new building in 2019 featuring 6 pizza ovens, in-house dining plus patio seating, and with a continued focus on high quality and dedicated team environment.
