General InfoThe tradition of hard work and dedication with the Bertolo family began when Pete Bertolo had to start working at the age of 7 due to the sudden death of his father. At the age of 9, he became a full-time painter. At the age of 15, he and his family were driven out of Italy and chose to start a new life in America. He began working at a sewing factory in New York where he met his wife, Josephine, 4 years later. They both worked at the factory until 1977. In 1978, Pete and Josephine started from scratch a family business in Greenville, South Carolina.The success of the family business is based on both a strong work ethic and recipes steeped in Sicilian heritage. Antonino Bertolo went back to his roots and all the recipes currently being used in the restaurant can be traced back through 5 generations of Sicilian tradition. Antonino Bertolo realized the importance of the perfect balance of tomato sauce and spices when it comes to pizza sauce. The dough is made with 100% pure olive oil with a hint of honey. And Lastly, the Mozzarella cheese is still the same high quality “Grande Cheese” used when the doors opened in 1977 to give Antonino Bertolo’s Pizza its unique rich flavor. Antonino Bertolo’s signature pizza sauce uses the freshest and finest ingredients mixed together to make the perfect New York style pizza with a Sicilian influence.

Antonino Bertolo knows how to make the perfect sauce with the perfect balance of spices. He uses only fresh ingredients, like fresh basil and oregano. I usually never eat plain cheese pizza, but found that the true genius of the spices comes through in his simple yet perfect blend of tomato sauce, spices and fresh italian cheeses on his crust with a hint of honey. I was fortunate to also be there one day when they had just finished making their meatballs from scratch. Unbelievable! But my favorite spot is at the new classy Wine Bar. I study wines and their wine list is a fairly good example of each type of wine at a very
reasonable price. Not to mention that the bar is a fun place to hang out at with out all the noisy college students running amuck! They are still a nice family atmosphere where adults can enjoy a nice draft beer and a refreshing selection of fine wines that won't break the bank!
we have been to bertolo's a couple of times and over all its a pretty good pizza. it is no match for titos, but it will do in a pinch. last night my wife and i went there for our date night and were very disappointed. when our pizza arrived it was over cooked, usually we are not the type to complain however it definitly had a burnt flavor. when i told the girl at the counter she directed me to the manager and i told him of our problem. it was like pulling teeth to get a new pizza, the converstation literally went like this:
Rob: "im sorry i hate to complain but i think our pizza is over cooked"
Rob: "it just has a really burnt taste"
Rob: "i mean... can i get a new one?"
Manager: "well..... i... i guess, its gonna be a few minutes though"
that is no way to retain customers, especcially over something so cheap to remake as a pizza. like i said the pizza is decent but with customer service like that i would rather take my business to one of the other 15 pizzerias around town.
I was appalled by their calzones. We are aware of the ""Italian"" food restaurant that do nothing but dilute the image of Italian cousine but this was dissappointing beyond description. We have been looking for a good authentic Italian restaurant here in Greenville but I am afraid we are looking in vain. The best Italian food we have ever had and the most authentic is in Orlando, Florida. Little and Big Anthony's not to mention Bucca De Beppo. If you disagree with this review please let us know as we would love to be proven otherwise.
