President and founder of Uccellos Hospitality Group (UHG), Sicilian-born Faro Uccello opened his first Grand Rapids area pizza shop in 1978. He quickly grew his brand, with seven more shops opening within nine years. As demand for his fabulous pizza and service grew, Faro seized the opportunity to open Uccello’s Ristorante Pizzeria & Sports Lounge in 1996. Giving guests the full dine-in experience with exceptional food and service was driving him to success, but Faro did not stop there.
Now with five successful locations throughout the West Michigan area, UHG has expanded into fast casual dining with two Herb & Fire locations and upscale casual dining with us here at MAZZO. Again seizing the opportunity to offer guests an encounter to exceed their expectations, Faro and the team at UHG have painstakingly curated the best in everything to offer an Italian restaurant in the heart of Downtown.
Faro’s personal philosophy to treat each guest to the best of everything is reflected in the menu, service, and feel of all UHG locations. He personally touches every aspect of his restaurants, leading by example, never compromising and always striving to do better.
