Daniel Scordato’s pizza restaurant Pizzeria Vivace at 4280 N. Campbell Road is changing names to Scordato Pizzeria.
Justin Scordato, general manager of the eatery, says the change is expected to happen in the next several months once issues with the signage and other details are worked out. He said the menu will largely stay the same, although he anticipates adding a few items.
“Daniel wants to make a separation between Vivace and the pizzeria,” said Justin Scordato, referring to Vivace, the nearby restaurant also owned by Daniel Scordato.
He also mentioned that people have been asking if the restaurants are a spin-offs of Gusto Osteria - the restaurant at 7119 E. Tanque Verde Road that uses recipes written by Daniel’s brother Joe Scordato - which has to be somewhat annoying being that Vivace and Pizzeria Vivace have been there for years and Gusto Osteria just opened.
"A part of it is that we want to keep the family name intact,” Justin Scordato said.
