Walk to Pizza at Arcona

Neighbors at Arcona in Mechanicsburg will soon have another delicious and unique small locally owned business just steps from their front door. Construction is well underway on Amore Pizza, which will be opening up in the newest area of Crossroads later this Fall.

Located in the heart of the neighborhood just steps from Arcona Green, this one of a kind pizza restaurant will be offering Sicilian style cuisine lovingly prepared by owner and Sicily native Peter Vella and his staff.

"We're going to treat our customers like we treat our families. We're going to give them food that we'd give our families. Something a little more unique than what you'll find at other pizza shops, with more herbs, different cheeses and different flavors," said Vella.

Vella and his wife Shannon chose Amore, the Italian word for love, as the restaurant name, because they plan to prepare their food with care and love just like they would for their own family. They're excited about being part of such an up and coming area, and look forward to getting to know the neighbors. "We really hope people love it, embrace it, and keep coming back."
