The first Fiamma Restaurant opened about five months ago on the corner of Main and Essex Street in Millburn. Owned by brothers Tony Fetajak, Charlie, and Sam Magjuni, and their friend Sam Bek, Fiamma was greeted with a rousing welcome from a host of visitors, who quite frankly, loved the taste of their delectable, wood-fired, Neapolitan Pizza. It was something new, and very well received by their busy clientele.
Not quite a month ago, the gentlemen brought their delicious Wood-Fired pizza to Quimby Street, Westfield, where they opened their second Fiamma. Surrounded by tables and chairs, the heart of their establishment is a fabulous wood-burning oven, where the temperature actually reaches 900 degrees.
”The buzz in Downtown Westfield has been all about the arrival of Fiamma Wood Fired Pizza,” said Sherry Cronin, Executive Director of Downtown Westfield. “The good news is pizza is always available for take-out. Just ask for a menu, and select whatever appeals to you. It is all delicious!”
”We hand-prepare each of our pizzas,” said proprietor Tony Fetajak who has been in the business for many years. “We believe the taste of our hand-rolled pizza is beyond delectable! Once you’ve tried our delicious, hand-rolled pizza, you’ll never be satisfied with anything else.”
“Everyone who has visited Fiamma, loves the taste of their wood-fired pizza, says Westfield resident and Assistant Executive Director of Downtown Westfield, Beth Brenner. "What’s special about Fiamma is their product line. Whatever they serve is prepared fresh, daily.”
Arriving from Europe, the gentlemen first settled in New York City where they each began working in various pizzerias.
“In fairness,” said Tony Magjuni, “we owe our arrival and success in America to our Uncle George. It was he who did all of the groundwork, and was greatly instrumental in helping us to first, find employment, then establish our two new restaurants. We believe we are located in two of the finest areas of New Jersey.”
“Fiamma stands alone. Their pizza and salads are truly delicious,” says Jamie Lemberg, Media Consultant for Downtown Westfield.
“We believe people feel really comfortable visiting Fiamma. We’re not accepting reservations, but don’t let that disturb you. We’ll get you in, and out as quickly as possible,” said Tony Fetajak. “Just come down, and let us take care of you!”
Doing their best to create the best-of-the best product, Fiamma will be offering freshly brewed coffee and house-prepared desserts, very shortly.
