CHESTERFIELD, N.J.July 27, 2023PRLog — Renaissance Properties proudly welcomes Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant to The Shops at Old York Village. Located at 95 Saddle Way, Units 400 and 500, Gervasio’s is a culinary gem that not only offers delectable Italian cuisine, but like the center it’s located within also serves as a bridge between generations. Gervasio’s takes a cherished family legacy of beloved Italian recipes and moves it forward in a new center uniquely designed to highlight the charm and appeal of traditional architectural features.

Gervasio’s Family Restaurant has a rich history dating back to 1969 when it was first established by Tony Gervasio. Born and raised in Chambersburg as one of 13 siblings, Tony immersed himself in the art of the Trenton Tomato Pie under the guidance of Guiseppe “Joe” Papa of Papa’s Tomato Pies. In 1956, Tony opened his first restaurant, and in 1969, he and his wife Marie founded Gervasio’s Family Restaurant, where they successfully served the community until its closure in 2004. Tony’s passion for bringing people together through classic family recipes and Italian traditions made every customer feel like family.

Today, Gervasio’s legacy lives on through Mark Mazzone, Tony Gervasio’s grandson and the Chef/Owner of the newly opened Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant in Chesterfield. Having grown up in Hamilton, NJ, Mazzone spent his childhood immersed in the family business, learning the art of pizza making, and developing a deep passion for food. With a resume that includes working at renowned establishments like Wolfgang Puck and Di Bruno Bros, Mazzone brings a wealth of culinary experience and a commitment to preserving the Gervasio’s tradition.

What sets Gervasio’s apart from the rest is its strong connection the past, not just through the family recipes but also through its architectural aesthetic. The Shops at Old York Village, with its neotraditional design, perfectly complements the essence of Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant. The center artfully blends contemporary architecture with elements borrowed from the past, creating a space that celebrates the cherished traditions of bygone eras.

“By choosing The Shops at Old York Village as the home for Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant, Mark Mazzone has found the perfect setting to honor his family’s cherished recipes and business principles,” said Robert Adinolfi, Chief Operating Officer at Renaissance Properties. “There’s a perfect synergy with Gervasio’s and The Shops at Old York Village that has been created at the intersection of the past and present.”

With 2,481 sq. ft. of stunning space from Renaissance Properties, Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of family-owned businesses. Employing a dedicated staff of 35, Gervasio’s offers classic family recipes passed down through generations, along with new and unique dishes that reflect Mazzone’s culinary expertise.

“The menu showcases beloved favorites like original Trenton tomato pies and slices, as well as mouthwatering cheesesteaks, chicken cutlet sandwiches, and an array of delectable entrees including chicken cacciatore, veal parmesan, and salmon puttanesca,” said Mazzone.

One of the many reasons Mazzone chose Chesterfield as the location for Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant is the warm embrace of the local community.
