About Us


Ciccino’s (chi-chi-nose) Pizzeria, founded by the Franzone Family (whose origins are from Sicily) opened the doors for business on May 29th, 1996. The name Ciccino’s originated from an Uncle (Francesco Palmeri “Ciccino”) who lived in Sambuca Di Sicilia, Sicily.

The original location for Ciccino’s Pizzeria and Restaurant was built in the late 1800’s. Originally, the location housed the Waterloo Fire Department for many decades. In 1996, after four months of renovations it was transformed into a Dine-in, Carry-Out and Delivery Restaurant.

In the Spring of 2004, Ciccino’s Pizzeria and Restaurant under went a major expansion, which added approximately 3,000 square feet to its facility in order to better accommodate our patrons.

In July 2006, Ciccino’s Pizzeria and Restaurant once again expanded and opened a second location on Exchange Street in Geneva.

Here at Ciccino’s Pizzeria and Restaurant, our commitment begins with the service of quality products at reasonable prices, comfortable dining room atmosphere, courteous service and a diversified menu. This allows Ciccino’s Pizzeria and Restaurant to offer the public a “quality dining experience” on and off the premises.

Our Family and staff welcome you to relax and enjoy “A slice of Italy in Central New York.” Thank you for your patronage and we look forward to serving you again soon.

Buon Appetito!!
