They are most definitely related. He was once the partner with his brother Luca here when Mr. Miceli was known as Miceli bros. pizza. They had the store where it stands now and in the late 80's where radio shack is. He is no longer a partner at Mr. Miceli but he is his brother. Not sure why they went out of the way to say they no relation. Strange.

Luca Miceli and Francesco Miceli (also know as Frank) Are blood related brothers. Same mother same father! What Joe Stated above is true! They started together in Late 80's on sunrise and eventually split and each went there seprate ways! The only thing that has no relations between the two are the buisnesses.. One has nothing to do with the other. BUT THEY ARE BROTHERS! Frank even looks like his mother who works for Luca at Mr. Miceli in RVC.
