Scorpacciata takes over diner's ghost kitchen
Scorpacciata, owned and operated by Cleveland Heights native Peter Reuter, is bringing pizza to the north side of the Cedar Lee Business District. Operating as a “ghost kitchen,” in the same former diner where Rising Star Coffee is located, Scorpacciata offers carryout only, and takes orders by phone. Scorpacciata’s pizza is a hybrid of New York and Neapolitan styles. Reuter’s focus is creating innovative menus inspired by local and seasonal harvests. Patrons are welcome to dine on the patio just outside of the building, or take their meal down the street to enjoy at another Cedar Lee business, such as The Wine Spot or CLE Urban Winery.
Meghan Connelly is the general manager of Scorpacciata.
