Another "Good Friday" Customer
A visit from Scott Servais is great for business, but an even more valuable customer is Elizabeth's own Anthony Colletti, St. Mary's Varsity basketball coach for the last 20 years. Coach Colletti has been eating Santillo's Brick Oven Pizza his entire life !!! (below is a Picture of Coach Colletti when the Santillo delivery guy rings the doorbell)
