Francesca sailed with her family from Bagheria Palermo Italy on the Andrea Dora. Her father had brothers in Pittsburg,
so after arriving in the U.S.A. her family settled in the western Pennsylvanian city. In 1971, the family opened their
first pizza place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. When Francesca went back to the old country she met Carmelo.
In 1992, Carmelo and Francesca gathered their best family recipes and opened Carmelo's Italian Pizza.
It is Carmelo and Francesca's goal to maintain a menu of delicious authentic southern Italian dishes by cooking
with the best quality and freshest ingredients. They hope you will enjoy the home cooked southern Italian food
just like their family enjoys at home.
