For nearly five decades, Staten Islanders have flocked to Euro Premium Italian Food for authentic Italian cuisine and fresh, hot pizzas. The landmark restaurant, which opened as Rocco’s in 1974, is still a favorite destination for parents who want to treat their family to a fun-filled night out.
Building on the traditions established by the original owners, Moe Sayed purchased Euro Premium Italian Food in 2022.
“I knew the family who owned through mutual friends,” Moe said. “When the owners got ready to retire, my business partner and I saw an opportunity to continue a great tradition. We updated the interior decor of the dining room and added some creative new items to the menu. The response has been very positive.”
Moe’s goal was to build on the family-friendly vibe that has always been associated with Euro Premium Italian Food. Children love the colorful superhero murals in the dining room and everyone appreciates the scrumptious Italian specialties served at the popular South Shore eatery.
In addition to classic Grandma, Margherita and Meat Lover’s pizzas, Euro Premium Italian Food now offers a variety of taste-tempting recipes such as the Lemon Pepper Chicken Pizza, Jamaican Jerked Chicken Pizza, Honey Garlic Pizza, Chopped Cheese Pizza and many more.
“Our Penne Vodka and Buffalo Chicken pizzas are also always in demand. If fact, our Vodka Sauce is so popular, customers often ask if they can buy a tray of just the sauce,” Moe added. “We’ve worked hard to step up everything we do here. We updated the kitchen, added new items to the menu and focused on presenting the best food with the highest quality ingredients. All of our beef is USDA prime.”
Euro Premium Italian Food is much more than simply a pizza parlor. The restaurant offers a long list of appetizers, salads, burgers, entrees and desserts that are sure to please the most discerning guests. Whether you’re looking for a gourmet pie, a hearty sub sandwich, eggplant parmigiana, penne vodka, shrimp scampi, mussels fra diavalo or any of the many items on the Euro Premium Italian Food menu, you’ll leave the restaurant satisfied.
Moe noted that Euro Premium Italian Food is also a well-known party venue. The restaurant frequently caters birthday parties and other small gathering on-site. Euro Premium Italian Food will also provide off-site catering at the customer’s home, office or venue of choice. In addition to supplying a custom menu, Euro Premium Italian Food can also facilitate all the seating and serving needs for the get-together.
“This restaurant is a family place,” Moe said. “My partner is an NYC police officer and I have been a real estate broker in the area for years. We live on Staten Island with our families and we are in the restaurant almost every day. We both love meeting our guests and being part of this amazing community.”
