The name Sampa’s emerged from Chef Marcus Roberto’s Brazilian origins. Sampa’s is the nickname for Sao Paulo, Brazil, which is the second largest pizza consuming city in the World, just under NYC. Sao Paulo’s pizza history is deeply rooted with Italian influences as a result of being home to one of the largest number of Italian immigrants in the World. Famous for their creative variety of toppings and using the finest fresh ingredients.
Here at Sampa’s, we represent the rich heritage of pizza with recipes fusing together the different styles of some of the most influential pizza countries: Brazil, Italy and USA. Our goal is to provide fresh, creative pizzas for the enjoyment of all like-minded pizza lovers! As the expression goes in Sao Paulo, “everything ends in pizza.” Meaning that most agreements and celebrations include pizza. So come join us for the one-of-a-kind Sampa’s experience today!

I'm from NY and noticed this was Brazilian pizza, so I was a bit reluctant to try it, but I was blown away by how fresh and good the pizza is! You can order a single slice from any of their gourmet pies and it's made fresh to order. The staff is very friendly and helpful too, enjoyed their recommendations. I highly recommend!

The BEST thin crust pizza I have ever eaten! Special Brazilian taste, incredible service. You must try it for yourself. I was born and raised in Brooklyn and know pizza. I highly recommend Sampas Pizza, great addition to the neighborhood!

For starters, you walk in and they are so friendly and you feel so welcomed! Elena at the front is huge gem. The pizza is like no other. I don’t feel calling it “pizza” is even fair. It is Out Of This World! The mushroom is my favorite so far but their pepperoni 🍕 is so delicious!
