Local Favorite ‘Nonna’s Pizza’ is Closed for Good After Nearly a Decade on Clinton Street
Nonna’s Pizza will not be reopening on Clinton Street. Thus concluding a nine-year residency on Clinton Street.
The local eatery closed at the end of December thanks to an alleged impasse over its lease renewal. In other words, it wasn’t renewed. (The space has been advertised to rent since last August.)
Now, more than a month after being sidelined, it appears a final accord was not reached. Nonna’s is no more. The contents of the pizzeria are up for grabs at an auction planned for this afternoon, the tell-tale sign that business is a goner.
Nonna’s, which means “grandma” in Italian, arrived at 105 Clinton Street back in the spring of 2009 as “Nonna Apa Pizzeria.” Owner Leon Leandru had taken over from Pizza Mama’s, and it later became a well-known stop among pizza lovers seeking its artichoke slice.
