157 E. Park Avenue, Long Beach, NY. Eventually a restaurant HAS TO work at that location….
Yep, Café Picasso is gone and another Italian restaurant called Villaggio Ristorante Of Long Beach is moving in. Villaggio promises us authentic Italian cuisine and brick oven pizza. Sounds good to me!
Ok, so Café Picasso did have some good pizza, but they never really featured it. I passed by yesterday morning and the place was being gutted and remodeled. Good idea; rid those spirits of failed-Italian-restaurant-past (Picasso, Mulberry, etc).
It’s all about good food and I love brick oven pizza, so I’ll definitely give Villaggio a try. Welcome to the neighborhood!
