Gargiulo’s Restaurant was established in 1907 by the Gargiulo family. Throughout the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, Coney Island was a famous summer resort with Gargiulo’s being the Grand Ballroom for weddings and other social functions. In April 1965, the Russo brothers (Michael, Victor and Nino) embraced Coney Island as their new home and acquired the restaurant from the Gargiulo family. The Russo family kept the name and implemented their Neopolitan hospitality and cuisine, making it the landmark that exists today. With the help and support of the many members of our family, Gargiulo’s became a family dining tradition.
