Gary Bimonte will be laid to rest this week in a private burial service after a Mass at St. Michael’s church in New Haven. The pizza legend was the youngest grandchild of Frank Pepe, whose Wooster Street restaurant is a fixture in the city. Bimonte died suddenly of a heart attack last week.

Back in 2017, he spoke with CPTV’s Off the Menu about his life, his famous grandfather and his passion for pizza.
