In 1967, when Armando and Antonia Gerardi opened the first Armando's, they were certain about one thing: how to make great pizza. By the end of their first week, it was clear they had created something special. Word spread quickly about their great food made from secret recipes from the Old Country and the original 8 table restaurant started filling up every night. Over 50 years later, Armando's has grown to become one of Windsor's favourite places to eat pizza and Italian food.

In 1974, Armando's expanded its menu to include a wider selection of Italian cuisine alongside the original-recipe pizzas. Today, each of Armando's 10 locations serve up a wide variety of Italian cuisine in an entirely new and delicious way with the original pizza recipe along with and new and modern pizza offerings.

We invite you to explore each Armando's and try the best pizza Windsor has to offer!
