An Iconic Columbus Pizzeria Is Moving To A New Location After 70 Years

One of the oldest pizzerias in Columbus is moving.

Gatto’s Pizza opened its doors in a small shop on N. High Street in 1952. Using family recipes, brothers Joe and Jimmy Gatto opened the pizzeria to serve the local Clintonville community.

Over the years, very little has changed at that tiny shop. Gatto’s serves Columbus-style thin crust pizza and it’s the best of the best. The dough, sauce and some toppings are still made in-house and Auddino’s Italian Bakery supplies the buns and rolls.

Now, the business is saying goodbye to the small shop on N. High St. and is heading down to 3420 Indionala Ave, where it will take over the space formerly housing McCarthy’s Wildflower Cafe.

The new location will offer dine-in and some outdoor seating, and you can enjoy a beer or glass of wine with your meal when they open later this spring.

For more updates about the new spot, you can visit or follow the pizzeria on Facebook and Instagram.
