Bozzelli's Italian Deli was located in what was originally "The Old Pohick Inn" along Route 1. Yep, a lot of you may remember the place. (Begin reminiscing now.)
The "Real Italian Guy" in the picture is Lou Bozzelli of Apulia, Italy; photographed shortly after starting in the restaurant biz at the age of 12. The Bozzelli family has been making great subs in the Metro area (yes, that´s how the Metro sub got its name) since the late 1970´s. We added hand tossed pizza to the menu because of a rent hike in 2003 and started cooking classes in 2008 when our mom got the idea from watching cable one night. Mama Bozzelli´s best advice on cooking is as follows, "You only need to measure when baking a cake."
