The wait is over for Fort Worth pizza lovers as the iconic Mr. Gatti’s Pizza will open its newest restaurant Tuesday at 11 a.m. in Fort Worth’s Museum Place.
Hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
“We are very excited about introducing a new audience to Mr. Gatti’s Pizza right here in Fort Worth,” says Michael Poates, president of the Fort Worth-based Mr. Gatti’s Pizza. “This is an opportunity for a generation of Mr. Gatti’s fans to relive their childhood and introduce their families to our great pizza and family-friendly atmosphere.”
The new restaurant will re-introduce tableside service and will feature a spacious main dining area, a room for private parties, games for kids and, later this year, a patio for outdoor dining. The menu, much of it prepared in a rotary copper tiled, fire-deck oven, will bring back Mr. Gatti’s original Neapolitan-style crust, a Sicilian deep dish crust and a new gluten free crust.
Guests will be able to build their own pizza or pasta creations by choosing from a variety of sauces and toppings. Long-time fans of Mr. Gatti’s will recognize many of the entrees, including traditional lasagna, the Submarine and chicken parmesan. Four appetizers, including the addition of Ginormous Meatballs, will be available along with three salad options.
Plans are currently in the works for a delivery service for the surrounding area.
“There is tremendous potential for growth in the Fort Worth area and we expect Mr. Gatti’s to quickly become a destination for pizza lovers of all ages,” Poates says.
