Pines of Rome will remain in its current location "for the next few years or so," a spokesperson for the restaurant said in a message this morning. So while an eventual move across town remains almost inevitable, you'll be enjoying their famous white pizza on Hampden Lane for a while longer than expected.
Fans of the beloved restaurant, a neighborhood institution since 1972, had been fearful Pines of Rome would be closing since Douglas Development bought their property 3 years ago. The new property on Cordell Avenue assures the survival of the restaurant, even if the scenery ends up changing in a few years.
