Pizzeria with deep local roots is set to open in downtown State College

There’s a new pizzeria to try in downtown State College.

Giuseppe’s Pizzeria by Brothers at 204 E. College Ave. will open its doors on Wednesday, Nov. 1, according to signage posted on the restaurant’s door. The new pizzeria, in the former Weirdoughs location, is part of the Brother’s Pizza family, which has restaurants in Wingate, Centre Hall and Benner Pike.

Giuseppe’s will offer pizza by the slice, sandwiches and other favorites as well as deliver through GrubHub and DoorDash, according to

Its Facebook page, which includes photos of an interior remodel, also notes it will accept Lion Cash and have gluten-free options.

Brother’s has long been a State College institution since Angelo Pistone opened the first location in Nittany Mall in the 1960s. Guiseppe’s owner, Joseph Pistone, also owns the Wingate location and co-owns the Benner Pike location.

A message left on the Facebook page seeking additional details was not returned Tuesday.
