NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Gary Bimonte, one of the owners of Frank Pepe’s on Wooster Street in New Haven, passed away from a heart attack at his Wallingford home Wednesday night. For years, Bimonte was the face of the beloved pizzeria his grandfather first started nearly a century ago.

Thursday afternoon, customers hoping to grab a slice at the storied brick oven were greeted with a somber sign informing them of Bimonte’s passing, and the closure of the pizzeria for the day.
