AboutChef Billy

William Manzo Jr.
A native of Providence, RI. Chef Billy Manzo grew up in the kitchens of his Italian and Armenian family. There, as a child, he was absorbing the sights, sounds and most importantly smells of traditional Italian and Armenian cooking. Passed down through the generations he brings that energy and the joy of food into today’s fast paced world. For Chef Billy Food = Happy.

Billy’s cooking has taken him across the globe. His time in Las Vegas, Kennebunkport and Italy have served to sharpen his cuisine. Now Billy is back home in Providence where it all started. He’s come full circle where he stands in the shadows of his Aunt Marie’s kitchen. There everything was food. Now he’s in his kitchen cooking for you. Helping you make memories for your family at the dinner tables of Federal Hill Brick Oven Pizza.

Chef Manzo’s cooking has been featured on the Phantom Gourmet. He competes not only as an individual but also as a member of The World Pizza Champions in various pizza competitions around the globe.  He has also been featured on the Food Network and is only 1 of 2 certified Master pizzaioli in the United States. Throughout his success as a chef Billy’s biggest accomplishment is being a dad to his daughter Ani. She is there now, in his kitchen absorbing this history of great Italian and Armenian cooking.
