'Ignazio's Pizza' on Serious Eats

Nubloom on Ignazio's

Nubloom Ignazio's finally, officially opened yesterday. The very first reports are mixed. From blogger Nubloom: The pizza was absolutely awesome. Thicker crust than Grimaldi’s but just slightly, giving a great crunch that I look for in pizza. The slices are not sloppy or overly loaded with sauce or cheese.

Openings: Ignazio's Pizza in DUMBO

Brooklyn real estate blog Brownstoner gets a snap of soon-to-open Ignazio's Pizza (above) at 4 Water Street in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn. The blogs are already billing this as a "pizza war," given that Grimaldi's is within spitting distance, but we'll leave speculation on the shelf in favor of good old fashioned taste-testing once the new joint opens. The owner is Louis Timero, born and raised in Bensonhurst but who moved to Hartford, Connecticut, to open the Luna Pizza mini chain in and around that city. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle ran a nice little profile on him in... More
