In the mid 1950’s, Vicenzo Centrella & his wife, Barbara, moved to northern New Jersey from Avelino, a small town just outside of Naples, Italy. The immigrant Italians settled in Union City, where they raised four children. By the late 50’s, Vicenzo & his brother, Filippo, took over sole’s Pizzeria in North Bergen. The Centrellas sold the business a few years later and opened the first Presto! in West New York. Over the 50 years Vicenzo and Barbara Centrella perfected their recipes & techniques based on the traditional simplicity of methods used by their ancestors. Their business in West New York continued to flourish. Vicenzo and Barbara, along with their four children, Gabriel, Franca, John & Josephine, made Presto’s into the successful establishment that people still enjoy to this day. Continuing the legacy is their youngest son, John, along with his childhood friends and business partners.
