New York City’s Famed Prince Street Pizza Announces Opening Date For San Diego Location

January 15, 2023

After over a year in development, New York City's famed Prince Street Pizza has announced a late January opening date for its highly-anticipated San Diego location.

Prince St. Pizza was founded in 2012 by father-and-son owners Frank & Dominic Morano, who took over their space in New York City's Little Italy from the historic Ray's Pizza, which shuttered following a 52-year run the previous year. The authentic NYC slice shop concept has since expanded with three branches now sited in Los Angeles and a location in Miami, FL. Last year, Prince Street Pizza founders stepped down from their managerial roles following exposed instances of alleged unsafe COVID-19 practices, racist statements made in Yelp responses, and mocking of the Black Lives Matter movement. Owners have since apologized and since they stepped down, new primary owner Lawrence Longo of Los Angeles has had the company in good standing with continued improvement of public perception. 

Last fall, we broke the news that Prince Street Pizza was taking over part of the space previously occupied by Mariscos El Pulpo on Market Street in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. The San Diego branch will offer a classic New York City slice shop experience with a menu of "Neapolitan-style" round pies and "Original SOHO Square" pizzas, including their iconic Spicy Spring with fra diavolo sauce, fresh mozzarella, spicy cupping pepperoni and Pecorino Romano cheese. Like the Los Angeles location, there will also be a small selection of salads and sauces to-go.

Prince St. Pizza will grand open on Friday, January 27, at 415 Market Street in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. For more information, visit and check out the menu below.
