Not one but two pizza projects in Wayne

The father-son duo who own DiMeo's in Andorra are on board.

Great minds, they say...

Looks as if there will be two Neapolitan pizza options in downtown Wayne.

Right across the street.

No sooner had Frank Nattle of Phoenixville's Vecchia Pizzeria Napoletana signed a letter of intent for a spot at 134 N. Wayne Ave. than Pino DiMeo and Scott Stein inked an LOI at 133 N. Wayne Ave.

DiMeo and his son, Antimo, run Pizzeria DiMeo in Andorra Shopping Center.

WIth Stein, a restaurateur and associate who had been planning a restaurant of his own in Chestnut Hill, they have earmarked the retail space as Mozzeria.

It will be an osteria, Stein says, so the pizza will be only part of the show. Vecchia, by contrast, limits the menu to pizza.

There's no timeline for either project.

The DiMeos are newly back from a trip to Naples, where they visited farms to source mozzarella.
