Buccis J•Bella

Bucci’s J•Bella, in Strongsville, is an Italian restaurant and part of the Bucci' legacy. “We’ve always been known as a neighborhood restaurant that caters to families, and that’s no different here,” Joe Bucci explains. “Our focus is on food. Every item on the menu is a signature item. We make all of our own sauces, stocks and salad dressings. And nearly every item on our menu has been created from a recipe that originates from my mother or my aunt.”

The Legendary Parmesan is one of them. “This recipe hasn’t changed once in 40 years,” Joe smiles. Choose from veal, chicken or eggplant and your Legendary Parmesan comes breaded with J. Bella’s house-made breadcrumbs, homemade sauce, melted provolone cheese and served on a huge platter. That’s another thing J. Bella’s is known for—the heaping portions. Plan on taking home some leftovers. 
No matter how stuffed you are, every meal at J. Bella should be topped off with their amazing homemade cannoli.
“We make the best,” Joe insists. They start with homemade cannoli shells filled with a rich ricotta cheese and nut filling. The ends of each tube—you get two with an order—are coated with toasted slivered almonds and the plate is garnished with a fresh, sliced strawberry. A delicate dusting of powdered sugar puts the finest finishing touch on an extraordinary experience.
