About Us

The legacy of Taste of Italy began 25 years ago when Giancarlo Schiano Di Cola must know as “JC” started learning culinary skills from his family in Napoli, Italy. Much of his expertise had come from his father Giovanni Schiano Di Cola who had spent many years in Brooklyn restaurants as well working in his own restaurant. At the age of Thirteen JC moved to United States to continue his father legacy.

In August 02, 2004, after collecting new experiences and inheriting the expertise and skills from his father, JC opened the first location of Taste of Italy. Using his father’s old New York recipes he was able to open his second location after 7 years in Canton . Offering a selection of New York and Sicilian Style pizza as well as many popular dishes including home-made Lasagna, Creamy Tortellini alla Panna, and luxurious Gnocchi Bolognese all made fresh, Taste of Italy takes pride in using top of the line quality with all products. This commitment to the customer is most evident in our marinara sauce which is made fresh daily. But the choice of entrees is not limited to the menu as we would be glad to prepare a special meal for any occasion or catered event.

Conveniently located on Old Hwy 5 and East Cherokee Drive next to Publix Super Market at Village Shoppes of East Cherokee, Taste of Italy offers fine food at reasonable price in a casual atmosphere. We would be honored to cater your next event and look forward to seeing you soon.


  1. “you love at our original location in the Publix plaza off highway 5 in Woodstock.” This is not a Publix Plaza….it’s the “old” Walmart plaza

  2. When are you going to set up delivery service? BTW Great Pizza! I am from South Jersey and your Pizza is the most authentic around! Now if you only delivered…how great would that be?
