One of Nashville's most popular pizzerias is headed to the west side next year, as DeSano Pizza Bakery will open a second location at One Bellevue Place, the massive mixed-use development currently underway at the former Bellevue Center mall site.
Owner Scott DeSano tells Eater that the lease was signed earlier this week for an approximately 4,700-square-foot space, roughly the same size as the original Midtown location prior to last year's expansion. The restaurant will also include patio seating, bringing it to an estimated 100 to 120 seats in all. Delivery of the space is scheduled for July 2017, with DeSano aiming to open before the end of the year.
Since opening the Midtown location in September 2012, DeSano has expanded the concept to Charleston, Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale, with new outposts on the way in Austin and Charlotte as well.
