If spending large amounts of time on restaurant patios with my friends enjoying beer and nomz is your favorite Buffalo summer pastime – same – then you absolutely need to keep reading, because locally owned and operated Santora’s Pizza Pub & Grill is the spot.Rewind: Grandpa Fioravanti is the Real OG.

Who doesn’t like a classic family owned business story? Let me start off by telling you how this legend was born. The man who started it all back in 1927, Grandpa Fioravanti, made homemade ice cream in his basement with his 11 children and would sell it throughout the Buffalo Area. When customers would visit him at his house, he would offer them some of the pizzas he had made and they eventually started asking to buy the pizza pies. This, my fellow Buffalonians, is how Santora’s Pizza all began.

Fast Forward to 2018: Patio Game’s On Point

4 generations later, Santora’s has grown into a go-to hangout spot, allowing the family to open locations across Williamsville, build a wider menu with an impressive selection of over 65 beers on draft, and host events on their awesomely huge patio. I don’t know about the restaurant/bar patios you have hung out on, but this one has numerous fire pits, comfy lounge chairs, tables, and a massive projector screen, which comes seriously in handy for for watching major sporting events. #gobills #thisisouryear
