One of Cork’s most loved pizzerias permanently closes after 10 years

Tis a sad day for the parish.

Uncle Pete’s Pizzeria has just announced they will be permanently closing their Paul Street premises after 10 years in business.

The pizzeria has been a favourite amongst Cork locals since it first opened in 2012, specialising in Italian American cuisine, and best-known for their homemade burgers and New York style thin pizzas.

Taking to Facebook earlier today to make the announcement, owner Aaron mentioned that his family will be focusing solely on their sister restaurant in Bantry, which opened in June of last year.

Uncle Pete’s, Bantry

“So folks the time has come to close the chapter on Uncle Pete’s in Paul St, Cork City and devote this page solely to our Bantry store.

My family has been operating in Paul Street since the 1960s from Clobbers fashion shop, to Bully’s restaurant in the 80s and 90s and finally from 2012 when the opportunity came up to open an Uncle Pete’s there.

After moving my wife and young family to Bantry in 2019 and starting work on a business down here it became increasingly difficult to manage both. And my father Eugene the founder of the Bully’s restaurants in Cork city has been long overdue retirement also at the age of 75!

So one door closes and another opens, we thank you all for your loyal custom in Paul Street over the years and hope to see you all down in Bantry at some point soon,

All the best,

Aaron and the Buckley family.”

We wish Aaron and his family all the best in this next chapter. You can get the Uncle Pete’s experience out Wesht at 10 New Street, Bantry. The restaurant is open daily from 12pm – close, dial 027-56316 for bookings and be sure to follow their journey on Facebook.
