Voted Best Wings and Pizza in Bradenton for 2023 - Bradenton Herald

Bradenton Casa Di Pizza has the last family ties to the original owner Joe Jacobbi Sr. He was always so proud of his family involved in the business. His grandson Joe and his lifelong friend Kevin Mann are still very much a part of the daily operation and still use most of the same recipes that Joe Sr developed over 70 years ago. We are very excited about our dining room expansion and are looking forward to serving the community for years to come.

Through the Years...

Through the years, our father’s dream took hold in Buffalo’s heart and appetite. 

The Elmwood Avenue restaurant expanded to more than just a pizzeria, with multiple dining rooms, full-service bar, and banquet hall, which at one point was home to the Elmwood Village Disco. It was “the only place you go up to get down”! The family-run business, which was eventually taken over by the three sons, Joe, Jimmy, and Jeff, was home to familiar faces and even everyone’s favorite local radio celebrity, Bea. 

Seventeen years ago Joe Jacobbi Jr. and Kevin Mann knew they were ready to venture out of Buffalo N.Y. and bring what they learned from 20 years in the business to Bradenton FL. They use family recipes that were created 69 years ago. With their hard work and commitment to provide fresh and quality food, along with a family environment, Casa-Di-Pizza has been a staple in the Bradenton and Sarasota communities. Thank you for your continued support throughout the years. 

We are always looking for ways to improve our service, this past year we expanded our kitchen and dining area, we also started curb-side pick-up. We have more plans coming soon so keep checking our website and Facebook page for more exciting changes in 2022!
