Our Story

Choose Us

Chris and Ria Totsikas, founders of Pizzaria Napolitana, immigrated from Greece in 1974. They eventually chose Jefferson City to raise their family in 1976. They were attracted to the strong family values, the strength of the business community, and of the beauty the Capitol grounds. With his prior business experience, Chris and Ria opened their first Pizzaria Napolitana on the old part of Missouri Boulevard next to McDonald’s in 1978.

A lifelong partnership, we like to say that Ria took care of the customer and register, and Chris ran the kitchen and company. Among some of their early successes were the introductions of both the Greek salad and Gyros to our community. They also established one of the first delivery services. Their strong beliefs and core values allowed them to expand at their second location in 1989.
