Tramonti Pizza closes on St. Mark's Place ahead of move to NoMad

Tramonti Pizza closed on Saturday night after service at 130 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

The pizzeria, which opened in the spring of 2017, is moving to a larger location on Fifth Avenue and 28th Street, per their Instagram feed.

Tramonti Pizza garnered some positive notices. And EVG reader David, who alerted us to the closure, was a fan.

"The food — especially the pizza and the pastas — was excellent and always fresh, the owner and staff very friendly, and the prices reasonable given the quality of ingredients used," he wrote in an email. "That said, it never seemed full, so not a complete surprise I guess."

Word here is that new owners are planning to continue operating a pizzeria. The two previous tenants were also pizzerias — (Via Della Pace Pizza and Falanghina Pizza Bar).

Whole Earth Bakery held forth for 20-plus years at this address until December 2012.

This is really sad! I loved Tramonti - they were always so friendly, and their ingredients were high quality! Truly the best Neapolitan pizza in the East Village. Really hurts to see them go, but I hope they do well in their next spot. It's a bummer to see all of the closings on St. Marks and in the surrounding neighborhood.

Same. Tramonti was the best pizza I ever had. Hope they succeed in the new space.

I'd be happy to have Whole Earth Bakery back in the space. I realize pizza is a high-markup item that can pay the rent handily, but Peter had an amazing bakery in this space and had admirers the world over.

Whole Earth Bakery.
it's really frightening to me when I realize I've totally forgotton about places in my past that I had regularly frequented for so many years.
