Soho’s New Pizza and Pasta Spot, Tresanti, Will Open Next Month


Not long ago, we brought word that the ghostly Lola space would rise again as Tresanti, our city's eleventy millionth brick-oven pizzeria. This morning owner Michael Longi was on the premises and told us he aims to open the second week of December. Longi is from a restaurant family; his father, Jerry, owns Primavera pizzeria on 53rd Street and Second Avenue. Tresanti will serve about fifteen Napolitano-style pizzas (many featuring housemade mozzarella), housemade pastas, and other red-sauce fare including some chicken dishes. And should you be in the market for a job, you can apply for front- and back-of-the-house positions by stopping in to 15 Watts Street, near Thompson, or by e-mailing
