Oswego Firehouse Pizza and Pub Officially Opens
A limited menu will be served through this week for staff to acclimate.
The smell of pepperoni, garlic and pizza sauce is wafting through the air at 65 W. Washington St. in downtown Oswego with the opening of the long-awaited Firehouse Pizza & Pub.
Owner Billy Lumino said the restaurant had a soft opening on Monday for friends and family and during the Christmas Walk on Friday with a limited menu to ease the staff into operation.
“We did not want to overwhelm them and ultimately create a bad experience for our customers,” said Lumino.
The restaurant will switch to its full menu next week.
The Firehouse had been slated for an earlier opening in late 2011, but was delayed due to the issues in the sewer system. The opening date was then moved to March 2012, but was also delayed.
Lumino, who owns Firehouse with his partner and cousin, Dominic Fecarotta, said they will serve New York-style thin-crust pizza along with a host of salads, sandwiches and appetizers.
“The soft opening went very well and the pizza as far as customer feed back is a hit, especially our chili cheese dog pizza,” said Lumino.
Firehouse will post its limited menu options daily on their Facebook page prior to the release of their full menu.
