Tradition, quality and authenticity are the values that shaped the business Riccardo’s grandfather started over 70 years ago. Today, more than ever, these guiding principles describe what Tonda stands for.
Once upon a time in 1948… Famous pizzas on the beach in Pescara
The roots of our business lie as far back as the middle of last century: Riccardo Ciferni’s grandmother, along with her husband, was selling her pizzas to vacationers on the beach on the Adriatic Sea.
Famous for her pizzas, she was also a historical figure.
Driven by a strong entrepreneurial spirit, Gabriele Ciferni opens his very first restaurant in Pescara, the “Trieste Pizzeria” in 1958.
Not much later, he creates the first pizzetta: a pizza of an unconventional, easily recognizable size and a unique taste that has become synonymous with Italian high-quality food over the years.
Backed by over 20 years of experience, Riccardo’s parents work on stabilizing their gastronomic business while imposing strict quality standards for any partners.
The family sells and distributes the dough to 12 restaurants on the Adriatic coast.
No compromises are made to maintain and protect the name and the reputation that have been built up with so much effort.
