Mamma's Pizza of Wellsville, PA
Here are notes from the owners! I have eaten here and REALLY like the pizza! Land at Shreveport, Kampel or Bermudian to get to Mamma's Pizza! You will LOVE it!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight

Buongiorno!

My name is Peter Ferrante, and together with my wife, we are the owners of Messina, your Italian restaurant.

Firstly, let me welcome you into my life and here is some background on why I took up cooking. White sandy beaches, fresh vegetables and fish -that is Vittoria- a hardworking Sicilian town where I grew up. My passion for cooking was highly influenced by my father and mother. My dad, would tell me stories about him running my grandmother’s pastry store, and baked me homemade cookies. My mom would send me to do grocery shopping and that is where I interacted with food ingredients. I also traveled around in Italy, sampling dishes. At the age of 19, I wanted to open a pizzeria in my hometown but red-tape and fierce competition made that impossible.
Two years later, I came to America, and I started working in a pizza shop. After a month of working here, I met my love, Patricia, who was also working in a pizza shop. Ten months later, we got married. The commitments of a family spurred us both to work harder -we had a dream of running our own business.


Peter & Patricia Ferrante

After 18 years of countless sacrifice, we were closer to our goal when a chance was presented to us to own Messina. It was tough. We had to sell our home, our business and move to Stewartstown while trying to make Messina a success. We had the vision to deliver the -best food, atmosphere, service, price to you- all these peppered with a little touch of Italian.

Currently, the most rewarding thing about Messina's is that our customers are also our friends. I derive joy when I see you savor my cooking, and I am always learning to make my restaurant your home. A friend once told me, "Customers come to your restaurant to enjoy your experience in serving them." That has been my motto for my restaurant since.

Now come and take a look inside if you have never been here before, and if you are here, make yourself at home. Thank you for making Messina a success, my friends.

Benvenuti!

Hi, I am Patricia Ferrante, the co-owner of Messina, your Italian Restaurant. While you wait to be served, I would like to welcome you by sharing a little of my life.

About 30 years ago, my plumber Father and home-maker Mom purchased a pizza shop. Rolling pizza dough, manning the front counter and making sandwiches were my way in helping around the shop.

I can still remember the alluring aroma of freshly baked homemade Sicilian pizzas, piping hot from the huge oven. It was also there where I learned recipes from my Mother.

Seven years later, I met my husband, Peter at a tender age of 19. It was love at first sight. I loved him for his passion in food and his appetite for learning. WE got married shortly and worked hand in hand, twenty-four-seven to achieve our dream, to own our very own restaurant!

We enjoyed bouncing cooking ideas off of each other, and our desire to operate our own restaurant grew each day. Imagine teaching Peter to make stromboli over the phone! Never once did our love for cooking subside. We had a vision, to bring a taste of Italian in everything we do, cook and serve for you, my friends.

After years of hard work, welcome to our Labour of Love, Messina. There is not one dull day as I strive to see my friends leaving our restaurant 100% satisfied. I grew to love everyday looking at how Peter tries out new recipes and introducing them to me. At Messina, it is always friends first, and customers second. You know you can always make yourself at home here.

Well, my friend, I hope you will enjoy your stay at your restaurant, Messina, where my family and I will be glad to host you.

Patricia Ferrante
