New Pizzeria Thriving on Ossining's Spring Street

OSSINING, N.Y. – Antonio Sinapi has owned more than a dozen cafes in his lifetime and, when he saw the crowds that gather around Spring Street and Broad Avenue, he decided it would be a good place to open up a pizzeria.

"A friend of mine owns the building and I figured I could use a pizza shop," Sinapi said. "So far, it's working out."

Antonio Sinapi's Pizzeria, located at 132 Spring St., opened in the fall and has been selling mostly pizza slices and zeppolis, Sinapi said. Toppings for the pizza include buffalo chicken, spinach, broccoli, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, chicken marsala, anchovies and pepperoni.

"For me, it's less work and it gets me out of the house," Sinapi said of owning a pizzeria rather than a cafe.

Sinapi said he has owned about 15 cafes in different locations in Westchester, including Brewster, Yorktown, Thornwood, Hartsdale, Silver Lake, Rye and Hawthorne.

"I like to move around," he said. "I get bored after a while."

However, Sinapi hopes to stay with his newly-opened pizzeria in Ossining for a long time.

"I'm 44 now. Hopefully this is it, I'm done," he said.

Sinapi said he learned to bake pastries and to make pizza mostly from his three older brothers, who have been working in bakeries and pizzerias since they were teenagers. His father is a barber from Italy, and his mother stayed at home to take care of four boys and a girl.

Sinapi has three sons, ages six, eight and 11, and he works his schedule around them. In the morning, he goes to work at his pizzeria at 9 a.m. In the afternoon, he goes home to take care of his boys and in the evening he comes back to his pizzeria after dinner when his wife is home and st

"It's a lot of work with the kids. Three boys is a lot of work," said Sinapi, who lives in Mt. Kisco. "Now I tell my mom I know what she went through taking care of five kids."

Sinapi is still working on getting the word out that his pizzeria is open.

"We're just starting deliveries. Not a lot of people know we're open yet," he said. "But I'm sure come summertime, it'll be crazy."

Sinapi's pizzeria is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
