Joe Pace Sr. Age 19, Boston’s North End, 1966

Italian food is a family tradition  

Joe Pace was born in Orsogna, Italy located in the Abruzzo region. He came to America at the age of nine. He settled in Boston’s North End and has become an icon within the Greater Boston food industry. 

As was typical during that time, half the family migrated first and later the remaining family members came. So, first Nicolo and daughter, Maria, immigrated to America and a year later, Rosaria and son, Joe, arrived. Nicolo and Rosaria established themselves in America in the 1960s working hard to first establish the neighborhood Italian “Groceria” that has grown to what it is today. 

They left a legacy and a prosperous future for the Pace family. Joe has continued to build upon the legacy and now owns three J. Pace & Son food retail locations in Greater Boston and the new Rosaria restaurant in Saugus. 

Join us at Rosaria Restaurant tonight! 


Joe Pace invites you to visit his newest venture in Saugus, MA!  

The chefs at Rosaria take pride in preparing traditional Italian dishes and in their steaks, work only with cuts of aged, corn-fed Midwestern USDA Prime beef. They exert equal energy and care when it comes to crafting their Italian dishes and seafood specialties. 

In addition to an intimate dining room, a contemporary bar, and an outdoor patio overlooking a beautiful landscape, Rosaria boasts an elegant function space that can accommodate private events up to 220 guests.
