Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza opened Aug. 21 on the northeast corner of State Road 70 and Lorraine Road in Lakewood Ranch.
The 3,600-square-foot restaurant said it specializes in the stone-fired pizzas, calzones stuffed with different flavor combinations, and pastas.
Piesanos also offers its signature rolls. The new restaurant will make its pizza dough fresh daily while its rigatoni alla vodka and rigatoni bolognese are prepared with pasta imported from Italy.
Desserts include spumoni, cheesecake, cannoli, tiramisu and cakes.
"We believe quality is at the heart of great experiences," co-owner Jerry Roberts said in a release.
The restaurant, which will offer both indoors and outdoors seating, has a selection of 12 draft beers and assorted wines.
To-go orders can be placed at 216-7980 or by going to PiesanosToGo.com. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
The restaurant was established in 2009 and has grown to 12 restaurants in Florida.
