That Italian Place Ristorante Opening December 16th

That Italian Place, located at 150 Bridge Street, will be expanding to include a dining room starting December 16th. From an email I received:

We are excited to announce the opening of That Italian Place Ristorante on Tuesday, December 16.

As you enter through the doors of That Italian Place Market & Pizzeria, you will have the opportunity to peruse the many DiBruno Bros. gourmet cheese selections, Boar's Head meats, a variety of olives and pepper shooters, coffees and frozen pastas. Head to the back of the market and arrive at the Hostess stand to be seated and prepare to choose from many specialty entrees our chef has put together for you.

We will be opening for dinner beginning at 4 p.m. We do accept Call Ahead Seating. Call us at 610-935-1800.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
Stephanie and Andy Pennisi

I hope this place gets it's act together. I've had two good pizzas and one very bad one. The bad one was primarily because they apparently forgot to put the cheese on it. And the vegetables we ordered on it were a lot of vegetable stems instead of the vegetables. We brought it all the way home and ended up throwing it away because it was unedible and terribly inconvemient to take it back. It's unlikely I'll be going back.

Im not sure why they sell those pre-packaged frozen meals. When I first ordered it I thought it would be fresh but it was just re-heated and horrible. The stromboli I got was ok

Had a really primo Italian hoagie from there the other night. Great Amoroso type roll, high end capicola & proscuit, excellent provolone w/ gourmet olive oil.

I had high hopes for the pizza too...

The Italian meats are way too fatty. I feel that we're getting DiBruno leftovers, rather than the high quality Italian foods.

I still make the trek to 9th Street. The quality is better.

I'm very disappointed, because now that the cheese shop is gone, I was hoping that I wouldn't have to go to Philly for high-quality cheese and Italian foods.

I do love the pizza here. I also like to get prosciutto from Volpi, http://www.volpifoods.com. They have the best tasting prosciutto and if you like to make your own pizza at home, you can buy their diced prosciutto (Volpini) to enhance the flavor!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:
