A Family Tradition Passed from Generation to Generation

For three generations, Mio Padre Pizzeria has been Millsboro, DE’s finest Italian dining establishment, offering hand-tossed pizza and traditional Sicilian cuisine including pasta dishes and entrees.

In addition to our authentic Italian fare, we also serve all of your pizzeria favorites like hot and cold subs, cheese steaks, buffalo wings, calzones, strombolis, and more!

Established in 1945 by Salvatore, Mio Padre Pizzeria was eventually passed down to his son Vincenzo. Young Vincenzo grew up working and managing the restaurant, learning the skills necessary to create an authentic Italian dining experience for his patrons.

Today, Salvatore’s grandson oversees the restaurant’s operations and continues the family tradition of making customers happy with delicious food and great service.

In March 2019 David Downes assumed the restaurant due to his passion for the food industry. David has over 30 years in the food service industry! He is excited to serve existing customers with outstanding quality and service. His intent to grow the customer base and share the taste of Italy with the new customers. Please come by and meet David!
