Originally born and raised in Marsala Sicily, William Sasso took interest in food at a very young age. He dreamed that one day he would serve his mother’s traditional Italian recipes in a restaurant of his own. William came to the U.S in 1998 and slowly began gaining experience in all of the positions in restaurants. At the age of 21, William had finally succeeded in his dream and opened his own pizzeria. William opened Cuzzo’s in the former Nick’s location on March 6th, 2013. His passion and commitment continues as he strives to provide his customers with fresh, quality food at a great value.
