Our Family Story

A Phoenix Rises

Laurienzo Brick Oven Cafe is located in the heart of Mount Airy, Maryland’s historic Main Street. Brothers Jay & Bruce Laurienzo have brought to this friendly and proud community a dining experience where everyone is welcome at the table.

Rich oak and mahogany tables, enveloped by bold “wine-colored” walls, offer a warm environment for gatherings of all kinds.

At the center of this uniquely traditional eatery is a wood-fired brick oven, baking hot delicious pizzas from home cooked recipes.

Fresh pastas, grilled meats, fish & vegetables, oven roasts, garden fresh salads, house-made soups, and hot pressed sandwiches make this an accessible and a fun menu for all.

Market driven specials are chalk-boarded everyday for the most creative preparations of the freshest ingredients.

The communal table, set in a midnight blue bar, is the perfect meeting place to enjoy fresh berry margaritas, icy cold craft bottled beers, and over a dozen wines by the glass. A bowl of house-made white wine sangria sits on the bar as a beacon of welcome.

Sit among the fresh herbs on a brick paved patio during the seasonal months and enjoy dining al fresco as you shop and stroll along Main Street.

After surviving the devastating fire of 2007, the Laurienzo family “rose from the ashes” and pressed on with the overwhelming support of their community of family and friends. 

The Phoenix is in full flight.
