"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Kathy Wakile is hoping to open her new Wyckoff pizzeria next month.
Pizza Love, as she's calling it, will be located on Wyckoff Avenue and will open following renovations.
"The feedback has been fantastic," Wakile told Daily Voice. "It is humbling to know so many people have so much love for my new venture."
The restaurant is undergoing a complete transformation including the storefront, color scheme as well as the lighting and layout of the kitchen.
"As with most renovations, one thing leads to another," the Real Housewife said. "While we're closed we figured we would take advantage of the time and give it a whole new look... a really fresh look."
Opening a pizzeria is something Wakile has long been dreaming of, she said.
"The first season [of 'RHONJ'] came and that wasn't the right time or the right location, and the kids were still young," she said.
"Now, the kids are older and we found the perfect location."
Wakile wanted her store to be within the fabric of the community where parents could feel comfortable coming after a soccer game with their children, she said.
She will be serving artisan pizzas, pasta dishes, entrees, soups, salads, weekly specials and of course, he famed desserts.
