2017 saw more growth for The Scarnato Family in the Phoenix area and it was time to bring Joe’s brother, Tim, out West from his location in Chicago, and Ahwatukee was where they found their next home. This location, is one of the largest to date, this location features a large open dining concept and outdoor seating along the foothills bringing Chicago-style pizza further West into the beautiful landscape of this Phoenix neighborhood. What sets this location apart is its prominent bar and community table. With the recent expansion of the 202, even more of Phoenix and the West Valley can enjoy all the Windy City cuisine Vero Chicago Pizza (formerly Buddyz) has to offer with the Ahwatukee location.


Tim Scarnato

The Pizza Maker! From the first moment the Scarnato brothers started in 1992, Tim has been the force in creating and refining the Scarnato family recipes that we are now known for. Tim is still active in all aspects of back-of-the-house operations and has run our kitchens for the last 30 years. After opening the family’s past 15 restaurants, he will play an integral role in each of the new Vero locations while still managing Ahwatukee.
