Meglio Pizzeria will open soon 1888 N. Humboldt Ave., across the street from redroom and Good Life.

Located on the first floor of a new condo development, the restaurant is owned by Cut to the Taste Restaurants and was recently awarded a liquor license.

Metz and his team are hoping for a June opening.  Stay tuned to for additional details.
