Johnny Buccelli grew up a street-smart kid in a part of the city everyone called Little Italy – a community that Italian Americans called home. Here, family was king and food was an expression of your identity. Gathering for a meal was instinct, somewhat chaotic and the smells of family cooking were always close at hand. It was understood, everyone brought something to the table because the Buccellis didn’t just love to eat their family creations, they lived to share them.
Today, you’ll find that pride of sharing here at Johnny Buccelli’s™. It’s a place everyone likes to call their own. There’s a feeling that’s authentic here. Because like the neighborhood Italian kitchens of old, we believe that you come for the food, and leave with a little something more.
Those who grew up in large families remember what it was like at mealtime. It was a bit noisy while everyone was busy grabbing their food and utensils. And someone was continually getting up to grab whatever they forgot. But once everyone settled in, Chaos gave way to great conversation. That’s what you’ll find at Johnny B’s.
We invite you to visit our Bethel Road and Hamilton Road Johnny B’s. And in early 2007, our third location on Sawmill Road.
