Now she is taking over the pizza shop, at 1334 Pine St.
Fox will call it Bocconcini ("little bites" in Italian). It will serve small plates, house-made pastas, and 10-inch pizzas. Fox says Giorgio on Pine will remain as a sister restaurant but emphasizes that they will be operated independently.
Giorgio on Pine, a rustic, Roman-style trattoria, is one of Center City's better BYOB bargains and a theater-crowd favorite. Bocconcini will be more casual.
Giorgio Pizza on Pine will close Feb. 5 and will reopen as Bocconcini on Thursday, Feb. 9. It will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Sunday, closed Monday.
