Sac’s Place, a popular pizzeria and Italian restaurant in Astoria that closed its doors on Broadway in July, celebrated the opening of its new location at the Kaufman Astoria Studios Tuesday.

The restaurant, which had a soft opening last month, is located at 35-11 35th Ave. and had its official grand opening yesterday.

The popular restaurant will retain the same menu that was used at the original 25-41 Broadway location, but will not serve pizza slices until spring, according to co-owner Anthony Sacramone.

Sac’s, which was founded by Anthony and Domenico Sacramone in 1989, will also offer seasonal dishes such as butternut squash ravioli, Sacramone said.

Sac’s closed its doors at its original home of 30 years this summer after the lease expired on the building, according to Sacramone, who said that the location at Kaufman Studios was the only place he considered relocating to.

State Sen. Mike Gianaris attended the grand opening and said that the new location would be an instant success. Gianaris presented Anthony and Domenico Sacramone with a proclamation to mark the grand opening.

“Sac’s Place is an Astoria staple and its new location at Kaufman Astoria Studios marks the beginning of a great partnership. I know customers will continue to enjoy their excellent food for years to come,” said Gianaris.

Sacramone said that the new restaurant employs 12 staff and is capable of seating about 150 people.

The restaurant is open from 11:30 a.m. until 11 p.m. Sunday thru Thursday and opens from 11:30 a.m. till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and will be open for lunch and dinner.

Sac’s also operates a Jackson Heights location at 86-14 37th Ave.

Job Killer Gianaris looking for a free slice. Total bum. Ask him why businesses can’t survive in Astoria anymore. Total dirtbag VOTE HIM OUT

So why is a politician there to give it his blessing? He shows up for photo ops to improve his image. When he stands outside the Steinway street station looking to shake hands I have looked him right in the eye and called him a job killer.


Good tasting pizza but crust is too thin. I have to eat a whole pie just satiate myself. Normal pizza slices I can have 3 of them and I’m good to go.

Sac’s is like a little taste of heaven. The pizza is exquisite and the food delicious. I have been eating at sac’s since the original opening in 1989 and will continue at the new location. Anthony and Dominic are true friends and their new location is beautiful. Eat smile and enjoy.

Absolutely love Sac’s. The food is great and the staff so welcoming. Went to the new location a week or so ago. The decor is lovely and warm. The staff still welcoming and the food still wonderful. One single wish….that they bring back the half portions, but that will never keep us from coming back!
