More About Us

Considered the oldest family name in Watertown pizza, Sboro Family Restaurants is as rich in history as its pizza is in flavor.

In 1903, Samuel Anzalone opened the first spaghetti factory in Northern New York at 840 Coffeen Street, Watertown.

The over seventy year old tradition that we speak of at Art's Jug, dates back to 1933, when people dined in what was then the "Stone Jug." "Stone" represented the authentic limestone block appearance of the building, and the "Jug" referred to the bootlegging of jugs used during the Prohibition. Fifteen years after Samuel's daughter, Mrs. Marie Anzalone Sboro and her husband, Attilio, opened the restaurant, her son, Arthur, returned from the war. In his honor, she changed the name of the restaurant to "Art's Jug."

In 1948, Arthur and his wife, Johanna, the second-generation, assumed management of the restaurant. They advanced the business upon a commitment to quality, service, cleanliness and relationships with customers, employees and vendors. Their children, Cynthia, Arthur, and Steven were a familiar sight at the restaurant and played an integral role in the family business. The family atmosphere became an asset, as generations of families returned to Art's Jug year after year.

Today the tradition continues as the 4th generation of Sboro family members operate the business.
