Iacono's Pizza was started by the second son of Tommy Iacono of Tommy's Pizza fame, which Aimless Ryan has so gratefully brought to us all here. There was a rift created of some sort between the two brothers with various theories as to why out there, but regardless the younger brother split off on his own, and created Iacono's Pizza. He chose to open up in the same Upper Arlington suburb of Columbus, Ohio as Tommy's Pizza, and where I was so happily raised. As I grew up I didn't even know how lucky I was to have these two amazing pizzerias at my beck and call. I ate both pizzas regularly and didn't really take sides, they were both excellent and were different in slight ways. Now I would think that the younger Iacono fella was privy to the iconic Tommy's Pizza recipe, but maybe not? Was that what caused the rift? It could be but one theory points to the notion that Tommy Iacono was a Sicilian Italian, raised in NYC, and he was going to leave Tommy's to his eldest son only, therefore pushing out the younger son, which would be super sucky if that be the case. So Ryan and I are going on another pizza adventure tomorrow to the storied Iacono's Pizza. I'll be writing up our thoughts and opinions after we go. It's been at least 10 years since I've eaten there, at least but probably longer! I switched to only Tommy's for some forgotten reason. I would love to hear from anyone else who has input on the differences between the two. Ryan of course, BigMoose? And other Upper Arlingtonian's like Tedcholl or Floridian what are your thoughts? I am excited to rediscover Iacono's!
