Joe Gorga Opening an Italian Restaurant

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Gorga is opening an Italian restaurant in East Hanover, NJ.

Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza is at 360 Route 10 West in East Hanover, and, according to an online job posting for restaurant and a report from The restaurant will “specialize in bringing delicious versions of our family’s favorite Italian dishes to you.”

Ironically, Joe’s first cousin, Kathy Wakile, just announced plans she’ll be opening her first restaurant, as we reported.

Gorga, who lives in Montville, owns a construction and real estate development business. Melissa launched a singing career courtesy of RHONJ, and lately has been running a clothing boutique called Envy in Montclair.

The women have been filming season eight of the show and will feature Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice, Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, along with original star Danielle Staub and newbie Margaret Josephs, who runs a home decor business and lives in Englewood.
