Signage went up late last week for Lollo, the incoming restaurant-pizzeria at 27 Avenue B between Second Street and Third Street.
As we first reported in April, a group of partners originally from Northern Italy are behind the new establishment, serving a variety of pasta dishes as well as brick-oven pizzas. (BTW: Lollo is short for Lorenzo, the chef and one of the partners.)
No word just yet on an opening date. If you're on Instagram, they have a placeholder account here.
The space was previously home to Solo Pizza, which closed following a rent hike in September 2022 after 15 years in business.
As multiple readers have pointed out, this is a pretty pizza-heavy corridor now between Third Street and down Clinton... last week, we first reported about the new venture from Luigi Iasilli, owner of the well-liked Max restaurant, who's opening Potenza Centrale at 38 Avenue B... and Luzzo's made a May 2022 debut at 15 Avenue B.
