How we started
The Collesano family, immigrated to the New York area in the early 1900’s from the city of Collesano (Sicily Region), Italy. The family established their first restaurant in Buffalo, NY in 1977.
Over the years, Lucia (Collesano) Klatt has enriched the traditional family recipes with her own personal touch, to bring you the delicious choices we offer today.
Our food features the freshest ingredients available, infused with herbs, spices and the passion the Family has for the kitchen.
With more than 18 years of business in the Roswell and East Cobb area Lucia's owner and operator, Tim Klatt, is passionate about working in the community where he lives and raises his family.
A native of Buffalo, NY, and the youngest of four boys, Tim grew up in his mother's pizzeria. After finishing college and joining corporate America in the late 90's, he realized he was missing his true calling in the hospitality industry. Serving and getting to know his customers with a personalized touch is what Tim enjoys the most.
"We know you'll enjoy your meal! Mangia, Mangia!"
"I feel a strong connection to the community where Lucia's is doing business because my four children are being raised right here, and we call this home.
It is a great feeling to know customers on a personal basis, and to not only connect with them at Lucia's but throughout our small community.
By supporting local organizations and initiatives we can see the tangible benefits they provide first hand." - Tim
