"Bocce" pizzerias.
There are two different places calling themselves "Bocce" pizzerias, each claiming to be the "original". (A college roommate of mine from Buffalo—nearly a half-century ago :-)—considered the Bailey Ave. location to be the real original.) Because I very much doubt that anyone in Buffalo other than their owners differentiates between them, because they use the same logo, and because they tend to change their names from time to time (see WHN's review, which refers to a (former?) "Dino's Bocce Club"), I am listing them all together. For more details on the various Bocces, see: Andriatch, Bruce (2012), "Bocce's on Bailey Never Fails to Deliver", Buffalo News (30 October).
