Meet The Owner

Jonathan is a full time entrepreneur, husband, and father of five. Sometimes working 80+ hours a week to provide for his family and continue a legacy. As a young child, Jonathan grew up around his family's pizza restaurant and developed a love for pizza making and an ethic for hard work. His grandfather, Al Vassallo, who is a former New Yorker, established Vito's Pizza as a pizzeria in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1991. Within a few years, his grandfather established the first Vito's Pizza Truck, long before food trucks were popular. As a teenager, Jonathan perfected his pizza-making skills and served hundreds of events while carrying on the family tradition.

After moving to Charlotte, working in retail for a few years, spending holidays away from his family and the monotonous work, Jonathan was inspired to return to his original craft of PIZZA making. Jonathan made the decision to establish a Vito’s Pizza in Charlotte and bring authentic NY-style, pizza pies to the city.  In 2013, Vito's Pizza CLT was permitted and began serving straight-out-the-oven slices & other Italian classics including delicious strombolis, calzones, and cannolis. Jonathan's faith and family are what keep him inspired to work long hours, not only operate a successful business that supports his family, but one that also provides customers with an authentic and friendly experience.
