After some delays, according to Thrillist.com, Ignazio’s will be opening next week, ‘barring any unforeseen circumstances’. Thrillist says:
“A supremely confident upstart will throw the gauntlet right in their competitor’s face — Red Mango opened mere feet away from Pinkberry, while Google took on Yahoo! in the very same internet. Baking pies in the face of a Dumbo legend, Ignazio’s, planning to open next week.”
They’re referring to Grimaldi’s, of course, which is around the corner from Ignazio’s, right under the Brooklyn Bridge. There are enough interest in the pizzas to support both restaurants, as long as the quality and taste are high. Based on emails and comments, there is a lot of anticipation for Ignazio’s pizza. Owner Louis Termini imports his cheese from Italy and is very picky about how the pizza is made. There will be entertainment with the baby grand piano in one corner of the restaurant, while patrons enjoy the pizzas.
