Faro opened his first pizza shop in 1978. From this time to 1987 Faro opened seven more pizza shops in the area.

location in November made for a very eventful year. In November of 2011 the Grandville Uccello's was

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".
