LATTERIA UPDATE

In early March I passed a message from reader Steve H. that a sign for Oppi’s Bistro,brought to you by “The Latteria,” had been posted at 1026 State Street, the former home of Palazzio which closed in 2015.

Steve H. tells me that they now have a web site oppiz-sb.com that offers some details about the restaurant:

“The Latteria – OPPI’Z is a modern, nonconventional Italian bistro and pizzeria concept, still rooted into the tradition of the Italian cuisine and to the “Slow-food” manifesto, but absolutely far away from any stereotyped model offered by most of the Italian-sounding restaurants in the USA. Motivated by his love for simple but genuine and tasty foods characterizing the Italian cuisine, Guido Oppizzi has reinterpreted the traditional concept of pizzeria by designing a menu comprehending, aside an intriguing selection of gourmet pizzas (prepared with a secret naturally and slowly fermented dough and topped with an unique combination of high quality ingredients), a selection of fresh, light and healthy dishes like our signature rices in a bottle, savory cheesecakes, tartars, carpaccios and salads.”

      No kidding. And some of it doesn’t even make sense, “Guido Oppizzi has reinterpreted the traditional concept of pizzeria by designing a menu comprehending, aside an intriguing selection of gourmet pizzas” But the dough is SECRET! Wow! :rolleyes:

    What’s happening at the old Denny’s on CalleReal? The windows are covered and there are workers on premises.

      Work has been going on for a year while a for-lease sign was up so I am guessing the property is being upgraded to attract a tenant
