After catching word that Queen Margherita Pizza is set to open a second location near the Junction this fall, we got in touch with co-owner John Chetti. Apparently, he and his partners have cemented a deal with Stefano Ferrara, who Chetti refers to as the “God of pizza ovens,” to come from Naples and personally build and install a pizza oven at the new location.
He also tells us that the new venue will be built inside a former bank at 785 Annette St. (at Jane St.) and will be similar in concept to the original location.
“We still want that rustic Italian look,” Chetti says.
No word yet on menu changes or what the new location’s capacity will be.
