SHAMOKIN — Original Italian Pizza (OIP) and Restaurant is a family-owned, family-orientated business that has been serving Shamokin, Coal Township and the surrounding area for more than 25 years.
OIP employs approximately 35 people, with a few who have been working for Joe and Candy Gallina for 20 years or more, and many others coming up on 10 years.
The Shamokin location opened at the corner of Liberty and Independence streets in 1992. In 2008, the building was transformed and expanded into adjoining buildings to include a larger kitchen, a banquet room that can seat 70 people and two dining areas that can seat 100. The banquet room is available for showers, birthday parties, funeral dinners and more.
With its marble pillars, extensive tile work and subtle lighting, along with a modern facade, it is a showpiece in downtown Shamokin.
The restaurant offers pizza, subs, pasta, seafood, chicken, veal, burgers and salads. A gluten-free pasta is available on the menu.
OIP offers delivery to local businesses and doctors offices.
At this time there is no residential delivery, but pickup orders can be placed by calling 570-644-7621 or visiting the dining room at 150 E. Independence St.
