JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio — A new pizzeria that's offering authentic, Italian-style pies opened Thursday in Mingo Junction.
Paesano's Pizza held a grand opening ceremony with the Mingo Junction mayor and council. The pizzeria will offer Italian desserts like tiramisu and cannoli, as well as ice cream and sandwiches on its menu.
"It's going to be some unique things on there. It's not going to just be pizza. We are going to have some different types of homemade Italian pies that are not desserts. They are stuffed with, for example, meatballs and ricotta cheese. We're going to have pulled pork with different barbecue sauces baked into our handmade dough,” said Frank Vostatek, co-owner and operator. “And those are going to be some items that separate us out from other places in the valley."
Hours of operation are 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Paesano's is located at the intersection of Battle Run and Wilson Avenue.
