Our Story


(Owners: Joe and Alyvia Town)

Paces Pizzeria was founded in 1953 by Dino Pace. Originally in Lakewood, NY, Dino opened two more locations in Jamestown. In 1963, he decided to put all of his love and time into the 549 W 3rd location. Living a very adventurous life, Dino brought back pizza and sauce recipes from his hometown of Sulmona, Italy in the Abruzzo province. Dino employed many people in the community over the years making life-long friends. One in particular was Joe Town, who worked with Dino for 10 years. Joe shares the same passion for life and adventure including traveling to Italy to find the best ingredients and wines. Joe became a sommelier in 2014 and worked in the restaurant business for 15 years. He recently purchased Paces with his wife, Alyvia, and desires to continue the wonderful pizza, wine, salads, and culture i the community they love!
