Help with finding Italian immigrants

Surnames: Nazzaro, Tirella, Cerullo, Bruno

I am researching some Italian families and am having trouble locating their immigration records. I have managed to find records for all of my own 7 Italian immigrant ancestors but I am having trouble finding even 1 of the 4 I am looking for now. They are:

Sabino Nazzaro b.~1863
Assunta Tirella b.~1878

Antonio Cerullo b.~1884
Mary Bruno b.~1889

Sabino and Assunta settled in Boston. They married in Boston on 27 March 1898. It is possible they either came through Ellis Island or Boston. They came from Avellino, from a village that was supposedly called Ultravilla. I found no such village to exist, though I did find an Altavilla Irpina and a San Potito Ultra, of which I think the later is more likely because I am told ULTRA was definitely in the name.

Antonio and Mary initially settled in Pennsylvania (York Co.) before moving to Boston around 1918. I do not know where they come from, possibly Avellino province as well but I am not really sure. It's also complicated by the fact that these two have fairly common names.

Any information, immigration especially but otherwise too, would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask about anything I might have left out and thank you!!
