Fire Engine Pizza Company Story
Situated in the center of historic Black Rock, Connecticut, Fire Engine Pizza Co. is a collaboration of owners, Martin McCarthy and Phil Segneri, who have refined their skills within the restaurant industry for over 20 years.
Widely known for specialty pizzas served from the 1985 International Fire Engine that was stationed on Fairfield Avenue, Fire Engine Pizza Co. was reinvented to bring together classic combinations with a modern twist. The menu offers gluten free options, a homemade mozzarella wedge that's unlike any others around - oozing with fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, basil, garlic, and spinach as well as entrees that have quickly become the talk of the town including Carmine's Eggplant, Rigatoni Tuscana, and Sunday at Carmela's just to name a few.
With reclaimed barn-wood, hickory floors, and endless artifacts donated from local Fire Departments, Fire Engine Pizza Co. exudes an early American ambiance with intricate detail from top to bottom. The rectangular bar is situated in the center of one half of the establishment, creating an inviting social environment that serves all the classics - plus seasonal cocktail specials throughout the year. The remaining half emanates a family- friendly atmosphere with a brick oven backdrop, creating a dining experience that is unmatched.
