Major addition to the Downtown pizza scene

Nick Solares

Master pizzaiolo Roberto Caporuscio, a partner in Don Antonio on West 50th Street and Keste on Bleecker Street, will be opening an as-yet-unnamed 120-seat pizza restaurant along with a school at 77 Fulton Street. His daughter, Giorgia, a skilled pizzaiolo in her own right, will oversee the restaurant's kitchen, which will offer 20 types of pizza and other regional Italian specialties like cuppo, baby fried fish served in a paper cone. Due in October, it will start serving traditional Italian pastries at 6:30 am. Giorgia will also teach at the school, which will have classes of up to 40 for professionals, amateurs and children, and be available for private events.
