For over 42 years, Gaspare Campisi has operated the restaurant that bears his name. Brooklyn born Campisi opened Gaspare's Restaurant in Bargaintown soon after he moved to this area in 1977. Although, he was only 18, he was already an experienced chef. Since then Gaspare's Italian Bistro has been serving the BEST Pizza, Pasta, Seafood & Italian Specialties in the area. Gaspare's also has a full bar & (and delivers) Wine & Beer!
"My uncles and my father, who immigrated to the United States from Sicily, had Italian restaurants and pizza like establishments in Brooklyn since the 1960's, says Campisi. "I started going to work at an early age, I worked with my father during the week and my uncles on weekends. During those years, Campisi learned the basics of Italian cooking and pizza baking, which prepared him to open his own restaurant.
We make our own soup stocks & sauces in small quantities to keep everything fresh and because the resaturant is so small (comfortably accomodates 40), it's as close as you can get to eating at home.
At Gaspare's, expect the warmest hospitality from our friendly staff in our quaint and casual atmosphere where you can turn something ordinary into a cause for celebration.
We also have a great all day Happy Hour from 11-6pm that includes $5 Martinis $4 Wines and Beer Specials. We have the most innovative, contemporary and passionately inspired menu using the freshest locally sourced seafood and ingredients.
