The Famous Bello’s Pizza, owned by Kevin and Tammy Hockensmith, has closed after more than 25 years in Madison.

The original owner of the business, Mike Pocobello, opened his restaurant in 1967 in downtown Madison before the Hockensmiths purchased the business from Pocobello and his wife Esther in 1988.

Kevin Hockensmith cited financial pressure from medical bills and health concerns that led to closing.
