Upside Pizza Slinging Slices in Little Italy

Posted on: March 5th, 2021 at 5:02 am by

Upside Pizza is now serving at the former home of Pomodoro in Little Italy. It opened on Spring Street this past Wednesday.

Founder Noam Grossman and partners Eli and Oren Halali (behind 2 Brothers and Taqueria Diana) had been renovating 51 Spring Street since the fall.

The pizza parlor opted for a gut renovation, resulting in a space that appears much smaller than its predecessor.

The downside to Upside? A plain slice will cost you $3.50, or $4.50 with toppings.

Upside seemingly has its sights set on Prince Street Pizza with a pepperoni square of its own.

As for Pomodoro Pizzeria, it had anchored the corner of Mulberry and Spring Streets for more than 25 years. The shop shuttered one year ago with the citywide lockdown implemented to combat coronavirus transmission.
