Chicago is out and New York is in. Belemonti's Pizzeria recently closed on Santa Fe Drive, only to be replaced by Amore Pizza, which held its grand opening last week. Amore is the first brick-and-mortar location for the crew who started as a food truck operation in 2013 serving up New York-style slices and pies.
Amore Pizza is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, but if you're craving a late-night slice, the Amore pizza truck serves slices from 10 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. every Friday and Saturday at the corner of 20th and Market Streets.
