    Excellent news. We need more local restaurants in the north east end of St. John's. I'd spend a few $$ for a good restaurant meal close to home. Good luck Piatto Pizzeria. If city hall is involved, you'll need it.

    Great Idea, we need more local businesses in our neighbourhoods. Given that it would have an outdoor seating area is a PLUS. Best of Luck to you.

    This city is filled with NIMBY's (Not In My Back Yard). However, this is pretty much in my backyard, and I say "BRING IT". The best pizza in town, by far.

      Agreed, me too, bring it! The more quality restaurants within walking distance, the better!
