Faro opened his first pizza shop in 1978. From this time to 1987 Faro opened seven more pizza shops in the area. In the interim, Faro moved his family back to Sicily and planned to remain in "The Old Country". In 1990 Faro sold the Faro's Pizza franchise with the idea that he and his family would be living in Sicily from now on.
As it happens many times, circumstances changed and the family moved back to Grand Rapids. Faro was again in the restaurant business when he opened Uccello's Ristorante Pizzeria & Sports Lounge on the East Beltline between the malls in 1996.
Once Uccello's Ristorante was up and running, Faro began to evaluate the Faro's Pizza Restaurant franchise. When it became obvious that the pizza shops were not up to his standards, Faro decided he would reacquire the Faro's Pizza franchise and correct the problems. In November 2000 Faro reacquired the franchise.
Faro was very busy in 2005. The opening of the Standale location at the end of May, and the opening of the Caledonia location in November made for a very eventful year. In November of 2011 the Grandville Uccello's was opened.In the fall of 2014, the Rockford location was opened on historic Main St. in downtown.
Faro always seems to have a project going. This fits perfectly with his personal philosophy to, "Always strive to give your customer more than they would normally expect. Provide people the opportunity to enjoy great food and the service to match. You must always strive to be better in everything. And, never compromise on top quality in any area".

"All I have to say is wow! Uccello's has amazing food! I stopped in there just the other day for my first time because a friend recommended it to me. I wasn't quite sure about it at first because I’m not quite the kind of person that likes to try new things or new places, but to my surprise I enjoyed every second I was there. I would definitely recommend Uccello's to anyone who has never been there before." lblock43

"I have been a long time fan of Uccello's and I'm always inviting my friends and family there for a great night out. When the game is on I can count on the big screen TV's to give me a great view, no matter where I'm sitting! Just recently, I attended my cousin's wedding reception at the new MVP room at their Standale location. I was really impressed with everything and was even considering renting one of their rooms in the near future." Flo
