The Petruzzi Story

Traditional Italian Recipes

The recipe for Petruzzi's meatballs has been in our family for well over 100 years. The family recipes, including the meatballs, have followed our family half way across the world and back again. Today it has been perfected by using tender & delicious Irish beef.

We like to think we have the tastiest family heirloom around.

Anzio, 1820 Hazelton, 1920 Belfast, 1998
Dominick and Jimmy Petruzzi

In 1902, like millions before and since, the Petruzzi family left Anzio, Northern Italy, to seek a better life for their young family in the New World of America.

The Petruzzi family settled and flourished in Hazelton, Pennsylvania, where their daughter Theresa Petruzzi met and married Dominick Petruzzi - a very distant relative! They opened Petruzzi's Italian Delicatessen serving Theresa's traditional family recipes - including her meatballs and Dominick's Italian sausages.

Jump forward three generations and the great granddaughter of Theresa and Dominick returns to her European roots and now living in Ireland, brings back the handed down traditional family recipes that she has made many times with her own grandparents, Jimmy and Carmella and her mother Donna - the same family recipes that make Petruzzi's irresistible.

Our products are of the highest quality and are made with the finest of fresh ingredients and the best Irish beef sourced from the green fields of Northern Ireland.
