Meet the Bozza Family
Michael Bozza and his family are from Gragnano, Italy near the city of Naples. Pasta-making runs deep in his family - his father actually studied the craft of pasta-making in college. The trade came with the Bozza family to Rochester when they moved to the city in the 1960’s. Michael combines a strong technical knowledge of how pasta is made with a passion for healthy foods and handcrafted flavors. In fact, the Bozza family name is well known and respected. He’s made pasta for many of Rochester’s best Italian restaurants.
Michael Bozza had the opportunity to expand the family business by moving the factory to Upton Street in Hilton, NY. He was excited to create superior quality pasta recipes based on the dietary needs and taste expectations of his clients in this highly competitive industry. The result of his hard work is a highly acclaimed line of pastas.
All of these pasta can be purchased right at the local factory. They love the local community and love to support others. A variety of grocery and specialty stores have supported them along the way to sell their products, as well as the local farmers markets. Many restaurants in the Rochester and Buffalo area currently feature these fine pastas on their daily specials.
