History

Opening in 1997, Little Italian Pizza was the first and only pizzeria in south Naperville and “grew up” with the neighborhood. In the two decades since the first pizza hit the oven there were a lot changes – a construction boom,  Neuqua Valley High school opened, and the town grew to more than 150,000-plus residents. But in the midst of all this change, one thing remained the same: Naperville residents stayed loyal to Little Italian Pizza and the owner, John Pendexter’s, commitment to quality service, fresh ingredients and the community he still calls home.

Adding to the family atmosphere is the employees who have been with the restaurant for years. With a manager who has been with Little Italian for 22 years, and several delivery drivers who have been with us for over 15 years, it’s a good chance that you know their name and they will know yours.

“We believe in quality and taking care of our customers. If you come to Little Italian you know you’ll get good service, an exceptional pizza and a fair price.”
