Savona’s Plaza Pizza – 30 years & counting

Savona’s Plaza Pizza has been in the Kingston Plaza for more than 30 years! It is our home. We have seen a lot of changes over the years, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is the sense of community. We are neighbors looking out for each other and taking care of the needs of our community.

We have great customers! Some have been coming for 30 years. We have been blessed with the best landlords; they’re wonderful people who give back to the community. These 30 years, the Herzog and Jordan families have always been fair and kind in dealing with us. They are always willing to listen and treat us with respect.

I know the Kingston Plaza is where we are supposed to be. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. “I love Kingston and am home in the Kingston Plaza!”
Cecilia McSweeney Savona
