Fans of the World Renowned Pizza Chef Massimiliano Stamerra, can rejoice -- and start eating again -- with the recent opening of GIOIAEat (pronounced “joy-ah-eat”) located at 1817 N. Young Circle in Downtown Hollywood.
In addition to his culinary skills, Stamerra is also famous for his free-style pizza throwing, and can be seen entertaining patrons while throwing pizza dough and dancing to lively music!
“His pizza is so amazing that I told him he was the only person I would trust to invest with,” explained Stella Righini, Stamerra’s business partner and former customer.
Righini, who lives in Hollywood and has seen the growth and transition of Downtown, identified the location across from the ArtsPark at Young Circle.
