Dominick Bellizzi grew up working in his uncle’s Italian deli in Bayonne, New Jersey, but his studies in computer science at that time led him on a climb up Siemens’ ladder. He lived in Puerto Rico, New Jersey and then finally may his way to Sacramento. He and his wife, Raquel, who was in the banking business, decided they loved the Sacramento area and wanted to stay and raise their children, Daniela and Jerry, here. It was then that their dream was born: to create an upscale New York Italian Delicatessen in Granite Bay. Chef/owners Dominick and Raquel built a unique place that would provide customers with the finest and freshest quality products, large portions, fair prices and the Italian tradition of “first name” friendliness.
Dominick’s Italian Market & Deli grand opening was in 2004. At their clients’ insistence, two years later they opened a small family restaurant right next door. The Trattoria & Bar was created, and is now an intimate and highly popular lunch and dinner destination. In 2010, the Bellizzis also opened Dominick’s NY Pizza & Deli in Folsom, which embodies a true East Coast Pizzeria.
