It looks like the wait for Ulivo is going to be a little bit longer. The neighborhood Italian BYOB from former Sovalo chef Joseph Scarpone was slated to open tonight in the former home of Trattoria Alla Costiera at Passyunk Ave. and Catherine Street. For the old heads reading, it’s the location of the old second shift/early morning drunk haunt, the Pom Pom bar. But today, a sign has been posted on the front door saying that “situations beyond our control” are preventing the Ulivo team from seating guests tonight. Though it appears that all systems are a go, a new opening date remains unclear. We’ll keep you posted.
Update: Foobooz reports that Ulivo opened Saturday.
