Stella Rossa coming to Center City

The former Square Peg at 10th and Walnut Streets.

Three months ago, Dave Magrogan cinched the corner spot at 10th and Walnut Streets that briefly housed Square Peg.

And now, he's let on that it will become a second Stella Rossa Ristorante - a sibling of the Stella Rossa he opened in Downingtown last month.

An October opening is planned. 

The bilevel 200-seater will have a bar as well as an area dedicated to coffee and grab-and-go food.

Most of chef Anthony DiPasquale's menu will be the same as Downingtown's, including cheese, charcuterie and olives sourced by Di Bruno's, Neapolitan pizza, meatballs (beef, veal or vegetarian quinoa) and the signature meta e meta, a half pizza/half stromboli.

Magrogan also owns 5 Kildare's, 4 Doc Magrogan’s Oyster Houses, and 3 Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bars.
