The Latest on Totonno's Re-Opening Date
Slice learns that Totonno's will re-open its doors in late September or early October. Lawrence Ciminieri, the owner of the iconic Neptune Avenue pizzeria, tells the site that renovation of the restaurant, which suffered extensive damage from a fire in early March, was delayed after city inspectors found that the damage was worse than had been expected. Apparently the building had been so compromised that it couldn't even support the weight of the oven and its coal, a liability for a pizzeria if ever there was one.
