Sakis Pizzeria was established on August 5, 1982 and was founded by owner Dionisios (Dennis) Sampalis. The goal was to create a pizzeria serving delicious, affordable food with a Greek twist to the downtown Providence public. The small family business was opened in one of Providence’s oldest historic buildings, across the street from the Providence Preforming Arts Center and Johnson & Wales University. In 2010, after years of planning, the Sampalis family undertook the renovations of the historic building and the restaurant, transforming Sakis Pizzeria to include a full service pizzeria, bar and grille.
