A new pizza place is coming to the Elmwood Village, but it promises to be a unique experience, restaurateur Gerald Clementi told the Planning Board this week.
Clementi, formerly of Caffe Aroma, and Myron Robbins, president of Buffalo Management Group, which owns 715 Elmwood Ave., traveled to Rome in March to learn how to make Roman pizza, Clementi said.
Pizza al taglio is sold by weight, and the dough rises for 72 hours, making the dough more digestible, he said.
Clementi won approval for the project, which includes an outdoor cafe, from the Planning Board and the Common Council's Legislation Committee on Tuesday. Information on when the restaurant will open was not immediately available.
The board stipulated that the outdoor patio extend no more than eight feet from the facade of the building.
The space, near Breckenridge Street, has housed Chow Chocolat and Quaker Bonnet.
