The Coccia House Story
In the fall of 1958, after the death of her husband, Domenica “Minnie"
Coccia, along with her daughter Jeannette and son-in-law Joseph Calabria, opened
a pizzeria/restaurant at 764 Pittsburgh Avenue in Wooster, Ohio. Opening night
yielded a rousing $17.00 in sales. The years have taught us many lessons, some
things to try, and some things to never try again!
Operated today by Joseph, Jeannette, Karen, and Steve Calabria, the
Coccia House features homemade Italian pizza, Abruzzi style. Our dough is
prepared fresh daily in our own kitchen and never frozen. Our cheese is provolone
made especially for pizza. Our policy is and always has been lots of dough, lots of
toppings, lots of cheese. We allow twenty minutes to properly cook our pizza, and
a bit more when busy, but feel that “old world” quality and consistency is a better
bargain than “new age” speed at all costs.
Of course, we offer a full menu of Italian and American dinners and
specials. Our homemade pastas are truly homemade, as are the bread, meatballs,
and sauces. A full service bar is at your disposal.
The Coccia House stands for quality, consistency, and service. We are an
independent family owned restaurant proudly catering to the families of our
community. We believe that dealing with customers as people in a friendly
atmosphere, like family, makes our area a great place to live–and dine!
