About
It all started back in 1967 when Sicilian born Giovanni Smecca decided to move to Galveston, Texas from Patterson, New Jersey after hearing Glen Campbell’s famous “Galveston” during a card game. Giovanni always dreamed of being a professional fisherman, so he decided to give it a shot and made the drive to Galveston. After battles of sea sickness, Giovanni quickly decided that the fish business wasn’t for him.Heartbroken, Giovanni was about to move back to New Jersey when he met Mario Bonaccorso who was trying to open a pizzeria. The two became great friends, and together, these two young Italian entrepreneurs started Mario’s Flying Pizza and brought the “pizza pie” to Galveston Island.Today,

I was in Galveston for a convention. My coworkers and I had the lunch buffet. It had a great salad bar, entrees, sides and several pizzas. I highly recommend this affordable lunch option.

We were recommended to try this place from someone we met on the road. I was not disappointed. I ordered the lobster ravioli and it was delicious. The atmosphere was nice, it wasn't very busy and the service was good.
