A new upscale brick oven pizza shop is set to open in Breinigsville on March 4.
Owners Guiseppe DiFiore and Marcello D'Agostino, who boast 36 years experience in the pizza business, plan to open the doors to Mama's Italian Grill early next month at 1044 S. Trexlertown Road.
The pair moved to Pennsylvania in 1984 and currently have locations in Kutztown, Egypt, Slatington and Walnutport.
"We've been in the business 36 years," DiFiore said Tuesday. "We're orginally from Italy and landed here in 1976. We got into the pizza business in New York and got experience there. We decided to move to Pennsylvania in 1976."
The final touches of construction are still taking place, but the kitchen is fully in place along with the dining room and customer service areas.
"This is an upscale pizza shop," DiFiore said. "Most pizza shops have sandwiches. We'll have things like chicken marsala, veal marsala, shrimp parmigiana and shrimp scampi. That's the reason we're here. Also, not many shops have brick oven pizza."
The restaurant will also offer a dessert menu and espresso coffee.
"We'd like everyone to know how good the food is going be -- fresh and oven made," DiFiore said.
The restaurant's hours will be from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m Friday and Saturday. The restaurant will be closed Sundays.
