Welcome to Bella Cucina
In 2001, Roza and Jay Hamzei came to America to share Italian food. They started off small, first, Venice Pizzeria which they bought and quickly turned into the place to go for the best pizza in town. On any given day, you could walk by and catch sight of both Roza and Jay delighting customers and even sneak a peak at their son, Vahid making his famous pizzas after his school day was done.
In 2005, Roza and Jay sold Venice Pizzeria and embarked on manufacturing what was to become Bella Cucina. The Hamzeis opened the first Bella Cucina in Canyon Country and quickly worked around-the-clock to ensure the restaurant’s success. Affectionately deemed “Little Bella” the Italian eatery quickly became known for its warm and friendly ambiance. More people began coming and coming. Eventually, a bigger space was inevitable—Enter “Big Bella” in 2008. Although the second Bella Cucina was situated on the famous restaurant row in Valencia, the move did not come without its problems and compromises and at the end of a year, Roza and Jay decided on a return to Santa Clarita restaurants. A little something smaller, a little more family and more food!
