It was right around Christmas of 2015 that the people of New Hartford learned DeFazio's Pizzeria was closing for good. The popular eatery left a void in the village that some thought irreplaceable. Now a sign in the window of the old pizza shop has people excited again.

Little is known about the new restaurant, but Italian cuisine in Central New York is always promising. There are currently several buildings close to the future home of 'La Famiglia' that are for sale. With a new successful restaurant, and the existing thriving businesses in that area, more is sure to come. We will keep you posted on an opening date, and more information when it becomes available.
