A friend of Via Della Pace owners Giovanni Bartocci and Marco Ventura launched a crowdfunding campaign yesterday to help the restaurant reopen after the three-alarm fire on Feb. 10 severely damaged the space at 48 E. Seventh St. near Second Avenue.
Per the campaign:
We all know how difficult it is to survive in NYC these days, let alone having to deal with such devastation. Giovanni and Marco as well as their amazing team of employees, friends and family, have supported their community for so long. It's time for us to come together and lend a helping hand for them now. Let's help them rebuild!
There's a fundraising goal of $25,000. Find the info here.
