Sad to see Vince's Pizza gone

 

Last updated 3/5/2018 at 2:21pm



Recently, my husband and I headed to Vince’s Pizza on Main looking forward to getting some of their wonderful meatballs. To our complete shock, we discovered an empty store with no indication whatsoever of what happened to a place that has been a Fallbrook institution for years.

Longtime Fallbrook residents have told us that years ago Vince’s was a restaurant located where Rite Aid currently sits. That was before we came to Fallbrook. Subsequently, owner Vince Vinceguerra opened the store next to Major Market - no seating, but a place to take out many of Vince’s menu favorites. At the new location, patrons could chat with Vince while orders were readied.

Vince was very community minded and a supporter of local community groups. He‘d advertise on the CareVan and could always be counted on to contribute to the philanthropic work of the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club. I recall one time when Vince closed the store so his student employees could go to their high school prom!

When Vince retired a few years ago, new owners maintained the same menu and loyal customers continued to come.

So sad to lose a wonderful small business in our community.

Jeanne and Joseph Cusimano
