Our Story

One of the oldest buildings in Lodi, 17 Summer was born to be a part of the culinary world. In the early 1900s, 17 Summer was built by a local family, who immigrated from Italy and owned and operated a very successful butcher shop at 17 Summer for 50 years.

Since opening in 2012, 17 Summer has been home to Joseph Cuccia Catering. Jenna and Joseph Cuccia have hosted countless Chef Tables, prepared for large catered events, and put private dining on the map. In 2015, this brother sister team opened 17 Summer Restaurant exactly where they started.

“Food is not meant to be pretentious. Food is meant to enhance your senses, heighten your emotions, and transport you to places you have never been.” Executive Chef Joseph Cuccia

“Great things happen when people come together and share a meal; ideas are born, emotions are shared, and culture comes to life. Sharing a meal reminds us that we need one another, support one another, and love one another.”  –Jenna Cuccia
