GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT PLACEBorn into an Italian family in Roseland, a South Chicago Italian neighborhood, Tom Gelsosomo has always loved great Italian food. As an aspiring young entrepreneur who had worked hard in restaurants in the late 1970's, Tom wanted to share his love for Italian food with people through his Gelsosomo's (Jel-sah-so-mos) Pizzeria restaurant concept.

Tom decided to open his first restaurant in Portage Indiana in 1979, an expanding community, in which he felt there was a large market for his concept. Tom purchased an existing Italian restaurant, a building that was characteristic of Italian architecture, that he felt was perfect for his concept.

Through the loyalty of his many customers, which ultimately led to his restaurants' success, Gelsosomo's became an institution in the Northwest Indiana community. Every year to show his appreciation, Tom gives back to the community by sponsoring youth sports such as little league, football, basketball. Gelsosomo's also sponsors organization events such as church, union, and donations to local non-profit organizations.
