Memories of the former location of Via Della Pace

Someone put up this note along the plywood on Seventh Street at Second Avenue... where a fire destroyed the residential building at 48 E. Seventh St. in December 2020. Via Della Pace was in one of the retail spaces... (thanks to Derek Berg for this photo) 
This used to be Via Della Pace.
In college one of my best friends waited tables here so I drank free a lot. I threw up after a shot of grappa on my 21st birthday.

I brought my grandparents here after graduation. I dreamed of having my wedding in the basement. I miss that gnocchi.
Perhaps this fan can make some new memories when Via Della Pace opens in its new home on Fourth Street between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
