Salvatore Uccello came to Grand Rapids in 1998. He started out by working for his brother, Faro Uccello at Uccello's on East Beltline. Salvatore Uccello was taught everything from preparing the food to serving it. Following his experience working alongside Faro Uccello, he quickly opened his first establishment. Florentines Pizza in Grand Rapids, Michigan was Salvatore's first venture into the restaurant business. With the mind set of personal service and attention, 100% customer satisfaction and great food make daily, he quickly opened up his second location, Joe's Way Pizza in Wayland, Michigan. After a successful partnership with the Vitale Family, Salvatore sold Joe's Way and opened his first Uccello's Sports Bar.
The restaurant featured a football shaped bar with six big screen TVs, 26 more TVs in the Sports Lounge, and 5 additional in the dining area for a total of 37 TVs. Due to success within the first year, Uccello's Sports Bar in Wayland added a 100 person banquet room to meet the high customer demand, also adding 8 more TVs for a new total of 45 TVs. The restaurant also has some video games, two pool tables, one bar top video game, NTN Trivia, constant poker games on the Big Screens, Keno, and daily food and drink specials. The menu featured award winning pizzas, sandwiches, flat breads, soups, salads, steaks, burgers, burritos, seafood, baby back ribs, and of course a numerous amount of Italian pasta dishes that were brought to America from Italy. Salvatore has now provided the chance for his two sons Daniele and Davide, more known as Dan and David to continue the family business by providing the Northeast side of Grand Rapids and Belmont with the same great food, friendly service, and fun sports atmosphere that the Uccello family has always been involved with.
The Uccello's Family mission is to provide our Customers the Highest Quality Food Products with Outstanding Service in an Environment that is fun and safe!
