I read all the great reviews and then was excited to finally find some good pizza in Buffalo. When I open the box and I see this monstrous sized pizza, cut in all different directions. I ordered sausage pepperoni and mushroom as toppings. The sausage looked like mincemeat splashed on and was a shade of gray. The mushrooms looked canned and were the same shade as the sausage. The pepperoni looked normal. Now I dared to take a bite, and the crust was mushy and thick. The cheese tasted like glue and was missing on the edges. I wouldn't eat this pizza again.

not only is Buffalo and the surrounding areas known for the worlds best chicken wings, they are second to none when it comes to pizza. And Bocce club pizza is a must have when visiting the area. Its basically a take out pizza joint. No room for tables due to the high volume of pizzas made there. On super bowl Sunday you have to order hours in advance to get one.
Bocce's pizza is generally reliable, but at times I have found their pies undercooked and their vegetable toppings mushy. Although their crust is good for Buffalo pizza, I find it too thick and bready. This probably reflects my early experiences eating thin crust pizza near NYC.
We recently visited Buffalo and I had read about Dino's on CitySearch so wanted to give it a try. We were not disappointed - the pizza was fantastic and the service was great.
For visitors - be advised that there is no indoor seating and it seems to serve as a take out place for locals. My wife and I chose to eat on the picnic tables outside and were so impressed with the pizza that we blew off our plans for the next night and found ourselves eating at Dino's again.
We will be back @ the picnic tables the next time we are in Buffalo.

I have traveled around the United States and have never had a pizza better than Bocce's. I grew up on Bocce's Pizza and to this day it is still the best in that I have ever tasted. Now that I am in Florida, I wish that I could teach someone here how to make a Bocce Pizza. Once you have had it, you will not eat any other. When I am in buffalo, it is one of the first foods that I get.

in on a bizness trip from new england last week, saw about this place on the net and checked it out. the pizza is unbelivable! the sauce, toppings and crust are excellent! plus a lot of sizes and 26 toppings to choose from. i will be fed-exing some soon, and going there whenever i see the super bowl champs travel up there and beat down the jills! go pats! and to all the jills fans out there, WIDE RIGHT!!! p.s. got a cheese steak which was average at best, and the french fries tasted like air.
- General Info
- Upon returning from WWII my Dad, Dino Pacciotti, started working at the Bocce Club on Hickory St in Buffalo. The club had bocce ball courts in the yard and served drinks & sandwiches inside. In 1946, Mr. Pacciotti seized the opportunity to purchase the club. He soon found an old pizza oven in the basement and started experimenting. He formulated his own unique pizza recipe and Bocce Club Pizza was born. In 1959, Dino moved into the Bailey Ave location in Amherst, seeing the proximity to UB South campus as a big positive. In 1988, our Hopkins Rd location in Williamsville opened, not far from UB North campus. Bocce Club Pizza uses only the freshest and most natural ingredients from 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese to dough made from scratch and hand stretched daily. We also mix our secret pizza sauce each and every day. I am very proud and humbled to carry on the “Buffalo Tradition” my father started so many years ago.
