THE PASSION FOR PIZZA
DeLuca's Pizza Pub combines the old world charm of Abruzzo, Italy, home to the Deluca family, with a modern authentic New York style flair.
Owned by Eric and Claudia Griffin, DeLuca’s name was chosen to honor Eric's maternal Great Grandfather Anthony "Jack" DeLuca, who ran a number of businesses in the Akron area in the 40s and 50s with his brother Victor DeLuca. Most notably are the DeLuca Bizmarck Restaurant and DeLuca Distributing.
The journey to Deluca’s Pizza Pub began when Eric purchased an authentic Italian wood-fired oven and began a two year expedition to perfect the pizza that New York born customers have referred to as "just like home".
Head chef, Zack Roberts joined the team to help Eric make this dream a reality. Together, Zach, Eric and Claudia, and bartender Denise Harris traveled to Manhattan & Brooklyn to embark on a "pizza odyssey", hitting all of the places that inspired our menu including Roberta's & Lucali's. San Matteo's in Manhattan featured a "DeLuca" pie in honor of the owner Fabio's good friend and Mayor of Salerno, who is a direct descendant of Eric's family in Castel di Sangro, Italy!!!
In order to honor the DeLuca's family legacy, we set out to leverage this New York experience and Eric's extensive research to deliver the perfect blend of the freshest, highest quality imported ingredients available. From the dough, to the sauce to the toppings, everything is made, cut and prepared in house. Ingredients are NEVER FROZEN and cooked in a one of a kind Italian combination gas & wood-fired brick oven.
Claudia runs the front of the house and works hard to assure that the service and crafted cocktails are delivered with the same level of care. She hand makes all of the bar's fruit purees and simple syrups and is constantly working to train the staff to assure that the DeLuca experience is one that Grandpa Jack would always be proud of.
From our family to yours, we truly hope you enjoy and we thank you for being a part of this labor of love.
