Beansie's pizzeria from The Sopranos.
Filming Location in Paterson, New Jersey, United States.
This is the filming location of Beansie's pizzeria from The Sopranos.
It is situated at 331 Main Street in Paterson, New Jersey.
Beansie Gaeta is a personal friend of Tony Soprano's. Although he is not a made man, he is a long-time associate of the DiMeo crime family.
After narrowly avoiding prosecution for drug dealing in the 1980s, he decided to quit while he was ahead and invest most of his money in a string of pizzerias.
Despite his "retirement" from the mob world, Beansie still allows Tony to launder money through his businesses. As a result, he remains very close to the family.
Unfortunately for Beansie, trouble begins to brew when his former boss, Richie Aprile, is released from prison.
After spending the better part of a decade wasting away in prison, Richie is bitter that the guy he took under his wing and introduced to "the game" is now a successful businessman who owns a chain of pizza parlors.
Shortly after his release, he visits his former "protégé" and demands money from him. However, Beansie refuses to bow to these extortion attempts.
Incensed by this, Richie grabs a coffee pot and smashes it over his head. He then proceeds to punch him multiple times in the face while he is lying on the ground.
Following the assault, Tony Soprano reprimands Richie and tells him to leave Beansie alone. However, this only angers Richie even further.
Later on, he lies in wait for Beansie in the parking lot outside the parlor and waits for him to walk to his vehicle. At that point, he drives straight into him and squashes him up against the car.
After reversing and allowing him to fall to the ground, Richie decides to run over him one more time.
During the brutal attack, Beansie sustains serious injuries and is left a paraplegic.

Episode 3, Season 2 - Toodle-F**king-Oo
In Episode 3 of Season 2, Richie Aprile is dropped off in town by his niece, Adriana La Cerva.
Shortly afterwards, he notices Beansie's pizza parlor and mutters the word "motherf*cker" to himself.
At that point, he marches towards it, eager to "catch up" with his old "friend".
Notably, Beansie never visited him while he was serving time in prison—a fact that undoubtedly added to his bitterness.
"This is not right, Richie. I'm not gonna lay down."
Beansie tells Richie that he is not going to lie down and give into his extortion attempts.
