Having attended the College of Wooster in the 1970s and having family in the area, I have known about Coccia House more years than not - and it was SO nice to be HOME! Some things never change and the flavor and the quality of the pizza and the antipasto are still the same - perfect!

In the new additions category - add an excellent wine list and the ability to have your unfinished bottle sealed to take home!

We indulged, knowing we could eat left overs later, and ordered 2 medium pies for 3 people. The double cheese and mushroom is exactly as it always has been and the 1/2 sausage and 1/2 pepperoni satisfied the meat lovers in the party.

I love seeing the family all gathered in-house on a Saturday night and the way the next generation has taken over from mama and papa.

When you are in the mood for Coccia House pizza, nothing else will do!

I have heard about this pizza place for years, especially from my husband, who used to drive 45 minutes when he was younger to get here. It opened at 5 PM, and we arrived at 5:15. We were seated right away and placed an order at 5:25 for pizza. The menu stated that they bake the pizza for 20 minutes, so we didn't order appetizers or a salad, wanting to save room for the pizza. The waitress brought the plates after 20 minutes, and my husband asked if it would be soon. She said, "Yes." The nephew of the owners was running pizzas out to tables, and after 40 minutes said that ours was soon. Our pizza finally came at almost an hour after we ordered it. The nephew brought our pizza, and when my husband said that it had been an hour, he said that that was normal. He asked if we saw the tower of pizzas waiting to go into the oven, and we had. They do a huge take-out business here, also. The sausage was like ground meat and there were not many mushrooms or peppers. The crust was very bland and tasted like the Robin Hood flour/pizza crust mix from the grocery store. It was not thin, like a flatbread, but it was not thick. It was about 1/2-3/4 inch and crunchy, not chewy. The sauce had no flavor, so we asked for a small bowl of sauce. The sauce that she heated up for us was much more flavorful and made a huge difference for the taste.

We had saved part of our beers to go with the pizzas, because we had a 50-minute drive home and only wanted one beer over dinner, so we asked for ice to chill our room-temperature beers. Our waitress brought us new beers, which was a nice touch. Our waitress was great, and it's not her fault that it took an hour. If we had known, though, we may have ordered side salads or an appetizer. The menu states that it takes 20 minutes to bake the pizza. We suggest getting more pizza ovens, especially with the huge takeout business that they do. They should make the restaurant customers priority so that they turn the tables faster. We could have been there only an hour instead of two, and the servers would make more tips. Having actual sausage pieces instead of plain ground meat on top would go a long way to adding flavor. In the Akron area, I would take Romeo's or Zeppe's any day for more flavorful crust, sauce, and toppings.

They have an unusual pizza with a relatively thick, biscuit like crust. Double cheese comes with TONS of cheese. Sauce is very mild,. This is vey filling pizza, but the leftovers are great! I overheard a lot of good comments from other dinners about their other Italian dishes.

Enjoyed a nice dinner here on a Wednesday night. No crowds; it took an hour from the time we placed our order until we were served. Didn't make sense as there weren't that many people there. Server was nice; I had Ravioli which was just average. My friend had pizza that was good but I have definately had better. Worth the trip but not worth a weekend wait.
