Mayor Sarno Issues Statement on Passing of Nick Caputo, Founder of the Iconic Red Rose Pizzeria

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “I am so saddened to hear about Mr. Nicola “Nick” Caputo’s passing. My wife Carla and daughters Cassandra and Chiara send our sympathy, thoughts, prayers, and encouragement to Nick’s wife Edda Caputo, daughters Rita and Carmela, son Tony, family, and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Caputo are dear family friends, who go back to the ‘old country’ with my mom and dad, Clara and Al ‘The Barber.’ From the small town of Bracigliano, Italy, Nick brought a hard family work ethic to start with a small family pizza shop to then create the legendary and iconic Red Rose Pizzeria. This hard work ethic was passed on to their children, Rita, Carmela, and Tony. Nick being always the gentleman, never strayed from his values of family, quality food, and customer service. You will be missed, my friend. Your legacy will live on through your “familia.” ‘You can hear St. Peter up in heaven now saying “wow this is great pizza!” God rest your soul Mr. Caputo.”
