As you might recall, Gennaro’s Tomato Pie was originally set to move across from the Singing Fountain. Plans then changed, which lead to the opening of Grace & Pat’s.
According to owner Mike Giammarino, both restaurants will now be consolidating into one location under the Gennaro’s Tomato Pie name in Grace & Pat’s current location at 1533 S. 11th St.
They’re in the process of finishing up some details for the transition, including things like clear coating the floors, to be able to open Gennaro’s here during the first week of November.
Since operating two restaurants in a close proximity wasn’t ideal, this will now combine the concepts of both spots. You’ll be able to get the “Best Pizza in Pennsylvania” from Gennaro’s, along with the square pie option from Grace & Pat’s. There will also be a few pasta dishes from Grace & Pat’s included on the menu.
Their current location on Jackson Street will now function as an office for Gennaro’s.
