Located at 3rd & Liberty (in front of Kroger and next to Brewster’s), Bucceto’s Smiling Teeth Pizza & Pasta Restaurants have been offering Bloomington award-winning California-style pizzas, pastas, Italian chicken dinners, vegetarian dishes, calzones, sandwiches, salads, and beer & wine since 2004. The casual yet stylish atmosphere is perfect for dates or the entire family or team. All locations also offer carryout, delivery and catering.So, you ask… what’s the deal with the “Smiling Teeth?” Bucceto’s feels that when you eat at one of their restaurants, each of your teeth will be happier than they have ever been before.The two Bucceto’s locations – East 3rd & 45-46 Bypass (behind CVS & next to Starbucks) and West 3rd & Liberty (in front of Kroger and next to Brewsters)- – are sister stores of Indianapolis-based Puccini’s Smiling Teeth and were recently voted “Best Restaurant” by the Indiana Daily Student newspaper as well as the Bloomington Convention & Visitors Bureau. The Indiana University department of athletics is truly appreciative of its partnership with Bucceto s. Our strong relationship is mutually beneficial for both parties, and perhaps the best indication of Bucceto s tangible and avid support of our program is the array of IU posters and promotional pieces that greet customers when they walk in the door of their Bloomington locations. To us, that shows every day how proud Bucceto s and their staff are of our department and what our student-athletes accomplish on the field and in the classroom. We recommend Bucceto s as often as we can to visiting teams, to our coaches for their team functions and summer camps, to anyone that we can and do so with great pride and appreciation, -Tim Fitzpatrick, Deputy Athletic Director at Indiana University.
