Come On In & Grab A Slice

Born into an Italian family in Roseland, a South Chicago Italian neighborhood, Tom Gelsosomo has always loved great Italian food. As an aspiring young entrepreneur who had worked hard in restaurants in the late 1970s, Tom wanted to share his love for Italian food with people through his Gelsosomo's (Jel-sah-so-mos) Pizzeria restaurant concept.

Tom decided to open his first restaurant in Portage Indiana in 1979, an expanding community, in which he felt there was a large market for his concept. Tom purchased an existing Italian restaurant, a building that was characteristic of Italian architecture, that he thought was perfect for his concept.

Through the loyalty of his many customers, which ultimately led to his restaurant's success, Gelsosomo's became an institution in the Northwest Indiana community. Every year to show his appreciation, Tom gives back to the community by sponsoring youth sports such as little league, football, and basketball. Gelsosomo's also sponsors organization events such as a church, union, and donations to local non-profit organizations.

Top notch ingredients, generous servings, nearly everything made from scratch in house, this place has been killing it for years. Easily one of the top 3 places to eat in little Macomb based on the quality of ingredients and overall taste of food!

I grew up in Macomb and the name may have changed, but the pizza is still delicious!! We were home for a visit and felt nostalgic, so we got the taco pizza. If you've never tried it, you're in for a treat! One of the only places I've ever had really good taco pizza!

My husband brought us here for a day trip. He went to WIU and spent a good portion of his life here. It was great to see this small town and the pizza was just as my husband remembered. It was delicious, can't wait to go back
