Pizzeria Vetri opening Sept. 6

Sept. 6 will mark the debut of Pizzeria Vetri, taking shape at 1939 Callowhill St.

It's a half-block from the Barnes museum in the suddenly hot slice of Franklintown, in a spare, high-ceilinged, subway-tiled space at The Granary.

Marc Vetri and chefs Jeff Michaud and Brad Spence have a wood-burning Renato model AR/700S oven to put out traditional Neapolitan pizzas, the rectangular Roman-style pizza al taglio, the roll-ups called rotolo, and a calzone. Figure on $12 to $18 for a pizza.

A few salads and two desserts - plus four beers on tap and two wines on tap - will round out the menu, which Michaud provided.
