An Update on Vecchia Pizzeria, Reopening Soon in Wayne

The restaurant has been shuttered for several months in the aftermath of an underground explosion.

The Wayne location of Vecchia Pizzeria, which has a sibling restaurant in Phoenixville, only opened its doors last fall but has been sitting closed for several months to rebuild following an underground PECO transformer explosion in April. While construction has taken longer than originally estimated, the pizzeria finally appears to be nearing its comeback.

Facebook posts from earlier this month suggested the possibility of reopening this weekend. But today's pizza map had us wondering, so we put a call in today to the Phoenixville shop, and were informed that reopening in Wayne is looking "99% sure" for Monday, July 27. While nothing is yet set in stone, forlorn Vecchia fans should rest assured that reopening is imminent, and keep an eye out for activity as soon as next week.

UPDATED 7/27: Right on schedule, Vecchia has passed inspection and reopened today. (Looks like they're also offering $5 margherita pizzas for lunch Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.)
