Get to Know Us

 Chris and Katrina’s story begins in the fall of 1988. They met during their senior year of high school while working at Pontillo’s, a family owned pizzeria in Canandaigua, NY. They began dating in February of 1989 and Chris continued to work at Pontillo’s until they both graduated college and moved to Valparaiso in 1993. They got married, had two kids (Adam and Jack), and had their careers. Chris was a mortgage banker and Katrina was a director with Pampered Chef until she went to beauty school and became a hairstylist. In 2010, they made the decision to take a huge risk and open Shoe’s Pizzeria. Although it was a lot of hard work and tough at times, they did it and now they are ready to open another restaurant. Scarpe, which means “Shoes”, will be a regional Italian restaurant located in downtown Valparaiso.
