YORK-Bellissimo Pizza Café on Mooretown Road in the Victory Village shopping center reopened on Wednesday, October 6, after being closed for nearly two months following the passing of the establishment’s owner in early August.
Peter Micali, owner and operator of Bellissimo Pizza Café, died on August 5. The business, which was also run by Micali’s wife and son, shut down following his death and remained closed during the transition as they struggled to find employees to reopen.
Bellissimo Pizza, which is popular for its New York Style pizza, Italian dishes, and desserts, shared news of the restaurant’s reopening on social media.
“Pizza returns today,” the post read. “Same pizza. New crew. New vibe.”
Bellissimo Pizza first opened in the Williamsburg area in 2007.
