Restaurant marks 3 years


Father and son duo Tom and Steve Canata are celebrating more than three years of their ‘Old World Pizzeria’ being open in Farragut.

Josephine’s Old World Pizzeria and Restaurant, 10943 Kingston Pike, is named after Tom’s grandmother, Josephine.

“It’s not any of her recipes, it’s just something in her honor because she was a good grandma,” Tom said.

“We had a place in New York for seven years, then we moved down here so we opened up Josephine’s here,” he added.

Josephine’s differs from many pizza restaurants in that it offers pizza by the slice, in addition to whole pies.

“We also have dinners: strombolis, calzones. We’re a full service Italian restaurant, and we also have delivery,” Tom said. There’s no extra charge for delivery.


When buying by the slice, toppings are 50 cents extra per topping per slice, or an extra $2.50 for “everything on it.”

In addition, Tom said, Josephine’s pizzas run large.

“Their large is our medium, so our large is like an extra-large,” he said.

The Canatas are proud of the family atmosphere of their restaurant.

“It’s just me and my dad here; we don’t have any employees, it’s just mom-and-pop,” Tom said.

“It’s got a family atmosphere,” he added, mentioning the restaurant’s TVs and beer selection.

Josephine’s accepts competitor’s coupons and has daily and family specials.

For more information, call the restaurant, located in Stonecrest Center, at 865-675-5516.
