Five Years Later, Goodfella’s Pizza will Give Way to Trapizzino on Orchard Street

The Goodfella’s pizzeria at Orchard and Rivington Streets is on its way out. As previously reported, there is a new suitor looking to take over from the five-year-old wood-fired parlor.
First-time applicant Luca Vincenzini is angling to bring a new 12-table Trapizzino restaurant to 144 Orchard Street. It’s tentatively named as such. Vincenzini seeks a beer-wine license, which may calm the minds of embattled neighbors in Hell Square. Nevertheless, the application will go under greater scrutiny at the Community Board 3 SLA subcommittee meeting later this month, as it sits within a saturated area.
Trapizzino is a distinctly Roman street food. A pizza pocket of sorts, the snack is, literally and linguistically, a combination of tramezzino (a triangular sandwich served in cafes) and pizza. The snack was invented in 2008 by Stefano Callegari, and first appeared four years ago as part of the Madison Square Eats foodie fest.
144 Orchard previously played host to late night Halal spot, Kebab House II, which closed in 2010 after many years in business.
