I feel like there are so many reality TV stars that (attempt to) open up restaurants, but I’m pretty surprised to learn that Melissa Gorga’s husband Joe Gorga is about to be one of them. Sure, he’s all about the Italian pride, but he was also very adamant about the kitchen being a woman’s place.
Then again, starting up a restaurant would be the perfect compromise for Joe and Melissa. He can take care of the business aspects and she can oversee the menu. I have no idea if Melissa is even involved in this project, but I’m sure her husband has asked her for advice while he has been working to get the place up and running.

As expected, Joe’s restaurant will be serving up Italian food in New Jersey. There is zero surprise there. According to a recent article from NJ.com, the restaurant will be located in East Hanover, New Jersey.
It is called Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza and it is described as a place that will “specialize in bringing delicious versions of our family’s favorite Italian dishes to you.” I’m sure there will be plenty of
self promotion scenes involving the start of this restaurant during the next Real Housewives of New Jersey season.
I wonder if the chef will be using any recipes from Teresa Giudice’s cookbooks. I would also love to know what Joe’s cousin Kathy Wakile thinks about this news since she also has an Italian restaurant in the works. There’s no word on when the restaurant will officially open, but I’m sure Melissa and Teresa will share the news when it’s official official on their social media accounts.
Since filming is underway for the next season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s likely we’ll be seeing the restaurant’s progress on the show.
