Green Mountain Pizza was established in 2013 by best friends and South Lake County natives Roberto Del Verme and Miranda Straugh.

In the early 90s, Roberto’s mother and father taught him how to cook authentic Italian dishes at their family-owned restaurant Capri in Clermont’s Sunnyside Plaza. Roberto has since gone to work for several of his uncle’s restaurants throughout Lake County including Mount Dora Pizza, Luigi’s, Vincent’s of Mount Dora, and Gi Gi’s Italian Restaurant in Sorrento, Fl.

While Roberto met Miranda in high school, they also worked with each other for many years at Luigi’s Italian Restaurant in North Lake County. Together they have over 30 years of experience cooking and serving their local community, and are proud to continue the family-style tradition right here in Montverde.
