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.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
