Essex St pizzeria
« on: March 09, 2015, 06:09:23 PM »
Does anyone remember a pizzeria on Essex St close to the cross street of either Newman St or Railroad Ave, I believe the name was La Bella Napoli? I'm thinking mid to late 70's

I dont remember where it was, but they were the sponsors for my biddy basketball team at Fairmount school in 1979.

As suspected, the pizzeria was in that little strip of stores, which at the time included a barber shop. As it turns out, my future father-in-law owned that pizzeria. And a relative of his owned the barber shop. And yes, they did sponsor little league baseball in town. Such a small world...he also told me a funny little story that his one time delivery car was a Chevy Vega, which dies going up Essex St and they decided to just leave it on the side of the road! Haha
