Fred's Italian

About us

Three Generations of Handsome Men!

In the early 1960′s, a young man by the name of Ferdinando Pizzo brought a piece of Sicily to Grand Rapids. He opened up a pizzeria and built a very successful business called Fred’s Pizza, based on honesty and respect. He started in his home, and slowly but surely, word got out about his great cooking. “We just grew and grew” remarked his son Salvatore “Sam” Pizzo, who started out washing dishes as a kid.

Eventually, Fred realized that his take-out business needed more; he needed a sit-down dining area, so he turned his business into a dine-in establishment around 1970.
