Louis and Rosanne Bucci founded the first Buccis location nearly four decades ago in Rocky River. Today, with three other locations established, and son Joe Bucci charged with continuing the legacy, Bucci’s is the name many of us think of when only the best hospitality and exceptional Italian food will do.

Bucci’s Italian restaurant made its debut in 1972 as a 50-seater, home-style Italian restaurant in the Rocky River suburb of Cleveland. Its signature dishes were pizza and pastas. Joe Bucci, owner and president of the family-owned business, said that Bucci’s Rocky River was the adaptation of his grandparents’ restaurant, Francescas, which was located on the west side of the city. Named after his grandmother, Mr. Bucci said Francescas was one of Cleveland’s first pizza parlors, known for its fresh ingredients and homemade items. For many loyal customers, Mr. Bucci said, Bucci’s Rocky River evokes nostalgia because it is the original home of Bucci’s and still has the same casual atmosphere.
