Ruffolo’s II in Kenosha
Ruffolo’s Special Pizza 2 was originally opened by Francesco and Giuliana Ruffolo on May 14th, 1989. They have owned and operated 3 successful restaurants in Kenosha, WI since 1983. When they began to look into retirement, Nunzio Covelli and his wife, Francesca Ruffolo, decided to pursue their dream and continue the tradition of Ruffolo’s Special Pizza II.
Nunzio and Francesca met at the restaurant when they were teenagers. Nunzio was a cook and Francesca was a waitress. Their friendship became a romance and were eventually married. They now have 5 children who are very involved in the family business. Moving forward with their vision of Ruffolo’s Special Pizza 2, they began remodeling the inside of the restaurant and added a few specialties to the menu. They brought in great staff and are now creating their own traditions that will last for decades to come.
