Sbarro, LLC is a restaurant chain. Sbarro is known for their New York style pizza. The restaurant was created by both Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro in 1956.

They opened their first Salumeria, an Italian grocery store, at 1701 65th Street and 17th Avenue in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, New York.[1] One of their busiest Sbarro restaurants was located in the World Trade Center mall.[2] The headquarters for Sbarro is located in Melville, New York.

On August 9, 2001, there was a suicide bombing at a Sbarro restaurant in downtown Jerusalem, Israel. The bombings were carried out by Hamas. 15 people were killed, which included 7 children, and a pregnant woman. It also wounded 130 people.[3]

On March 10, 2014, Sbarro filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy.[4]
