The Neapolitan-style pizza parlour from ex-Queen Margherita pizzaiolo Romolo Salvati is bringing its wood-fired pies and fresh-cranked pasta to a new location in the downtown core. The new outpost will occupy the first floor of the 19th century heritage property at 87 Elm Street, which also houses a YWCA centre. Via Mercanti 2.0, which opens in October, will be bigger and fancier than the no-frills Kensington store with over 80 seats and a sprawling terrace. [NOW]
