|Decora Pizza remains under wraps during renovation|
Here's a fun fact: By the numbers, there's roughly 16 pizzerias per mi2 in Manhattan. In Bay Ridge, the quote was not much more- roughly 18/mi2 (standalone, not counting restaurants).

Mancini's had a good five year run serving up pizza from their brick oven along heavily trafficked 5th Ave. Benevento's phone number is largely unchanged, making this transition one of the quietest we've seen yet... aside from the awning and signage.
½ year run, with a sign affixed to the door saying the business is closed. Some may point to their distance away off 5th Ave playing a key factor.
