Local leaders and members of the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce will formally welcome Trusello's to Lewiston on Friday. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 10:30 a.m.
The pizzeria took over the former Vincenzo's location at 742 Center St. Since opening on May 27, brothers Anthony and Joey Trusello say business has been booming. After a first weekend in which customer lines went out the door, demand for the family's signature old-fashioned style pizza has remained steady. On most days it's a challenge to find $1 single slices, as guests regularly come in and take entire trays.
The pizza, it should be noted, is made with sizable amounts of Gem oil - it's just the way Anthony's and Joey's grandparents assembled trays for decades at their location behind the City Market in Niagara Falls.
In addition to pizza, Trusello's features McLeod's Deli sandwiches (starting at $6), subs, salads and finger foods. Three dinners are available: cheeseburger basket ($8; $1 extra for bacon), homemade Italian sausage ($8) and chicken fingers ($8).
As an added bonus, Trusello's also sells chicken wings. A variety of sauces are available, including two specialty versions: "gold rush," which is a house-made barbecue-mustard mix, and "bumpas," a hot sauce and barbecue blend.
Trusello's offers four daily specials, including a 1/2 tray or large pie with cheese and one item and 20 wings or 10 chicken fingers for $23.
