Marcus Theatres has announced that it will open a third branch of Zaffiro's Pizzeria & Bar at the Ridge Cinema in New Berlin Friday, Aug. 3.

The new restaurant will seat 165 people and feature Zaffiro's trademark thin crust pizzas handmade to order, as well small-plate appetizers, fresh salads, a variety of pasta dishes, sandwiches and desserts. The restaurant will also have a full-service bar and delivery and carry-out service.

"A new item is homemade gelato," Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres, said in a statement. "This frozen sweet treat will be offered in a variety of flavors and will be made daily at the restaurant."

A Zaffiro's Express service will also be added to the theater's concession area. For a preview of the New Berlin Zaffiro's menu, visit the website.
