A troubling sign over at Nonna's, the pizzeria at 201 Avenue A between East 12th Street and East 13th Street... a note on the door says that the shop is closed until further notice... and the inside looks pretty disheveled...
Nonna's just arrived this past June, as we first reported. As a reader told us, the pizzeria is/was run by a grandson and his grandmother … the family patriarch operated pizzerias in Long Island and Westchester dating to the 1980s.
EVG readers gave the pizza here high marks. Hopefully this is just some kind of short-term renovation or something.
The space has been pizza the past few years: Fat Sal's, which closed in May 2014, took over in May 2011 from APizzA.
Avenue A is now down two pizzerias... Nino's remains closed at St. Mark's Place, with no sign of life inside of late. So you still have Two Boots at East Third Street and Muzzarella Pizza between East 13th Street and East 14th Street. Not to mention the discount slices at the new 99¢ Pizza at East Sixth Street ... and Mamani Pizza between East Ninth Street and East 10th Street.

Looks like Nonna's is closed for good, via Gojira in the comments.
