Sergio’s originally began with Lorenzo and Virginia Rossini in 1979...
When they opened a restaurant in Connecticut featuring the traditional recipes passed down to them by their families, before they came to this country from Supino (near Frosinone) Italy. In 1983, they left Connecticut and opened Sergio’s in Zephyrhills, Florida, named after their daughter’s husband.
As time passed, Adam Cacciotti, grandson of Lorenzo and Virginia, took over management of the restaurant, which means that Sergio’s is now into its third generation. Adam studied Culinary Arts in Italy and graduated with a degree in Culinary Arts Technology from the Florida Culinary Institute. Today the restaurant is still ran solely by Adam and his mother Lea. No matter what, you can always count on seeing either Adam or Lea at the restaurant from open to close every day.
Everything on our menu is still made according to the traditional recipes passed down through the family. The sauce is made fresh and without preservatives, which is why we can’t sell it by the jar. It is our adherence to Old World recipes which drives us.
Our dishes, including our pizzas, are cooked with a deck oven, which requires more skill and experience than a conveyor oven like you find at chain restaurants. We also prepare each dish to order to ensure that everything is as fresh as it can possibly be.
In Italy, eating means being surrounded by your friends and loved ones and sharing an experience together. Cooking means preparing everything by hand according to methods taught to you by your parents and grandparents. These are the values by which we live and work. We can’t wait for you to stop by so we can share them with you.
