Italiana’s will replace Pasta Cucina restaurant


Details are sparse. However, it is now public that Italiana’s Restaurant and Bar will replace the former Pasta Cucina on Little Tor Road.  Interior and exterior construction work on the soon-to-be-open brick oven pizzeria has been in progress for several months.

Italiana’s is owned by Peter Mastorakos, who has two other restaurants across the border in New Jersey. He owns Roxanne’s Brick Oven Pizzeria Bar and Grill in Mahwah and co-owns Varka Estiatorio in Ramsey.

In July, George Georgiades, co-owner of Varka and executive chef for both NJ restaurants, said the dining atmosphere would be “very warm and family oriented.” He said there would be exposed bricks and beams and the menu would be similar to what is served at Roxanne’s. At that time, he said they hoped to open the new addition in mid September.

I hope this place can make it. Still can't understand why Pasta Cucina closed after all the years it was in business. Still can't understand why Pizza and Brew left Nanuet years back.

Tell the owner that he has to do something about the lighting in the parking lot! It is so dark that it is uncomfortable to park there at night.

GWH That's important for the new owner to know. We will share that information.

What happened to this place? Why hasn't it opened yet?
