Upon returning from WWII my Dad, Dino Pacciotti, started working at the Bocce Club on Hickory St. in Buffalo. The club had bocce ball courts in the yard and served drinks and sandwiches inside. In 1946, Mr. Pacciotti seized the opportunity to purchase the club. He soon found an old pizza oven in the basement and started experimenting. He formulated his own unique pizza recipe and Bocce Club Pizza was born. In 1959, Dino moved into the Bailey Ave. location in Amherst, seeing the proximity to UB South Campus as a big positive. In 1988, our Hopkins Rd. location in Williamsville opened, not far from UB North Campus.
Bocce Club Pizza uses only the freshest and most natural ingredients, from 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese to dough made from scratch and hand stretched daily. We also mix our secret pizza sauce each and every day.
I am very proud and humbled to carry on the “Buffalo Tradition” my father started so many years ago.
