The folks behind Santucci’s Square Pizza got the big green light from Ventnor’s Planning Board on Nov 26. The board approved all needed variances for the planned Santucci’s (opening Summer 2019) at the site of the former Arrow Hardware on Ventnor Ave.
Santucci’s Square Pizza principle is Blake Barabuscio. Blake grew up in Ventnor.
- side and rear setback requirements
- lot coverage
The final site plan was approved to rehabilitate the structure at 6413-6417 Ventnor Ave.
Santucci’s Square Pizza Ventnor. More than just a pizza parlor.
A full-service restaurant and bar. Planning for a Summer 2019 opening. Restaurant hours: 10a til midnight.
What about the limited parking? According to current Ventnor ordinance, they would need 113 parking spots for their 277-seat restaurant. That’s why they asked for a variance….and got it.
Santucci’s will have NO on-site parking. That’s a real concern. Sadly, a necessary evil. (Margate dealing with same challenges) Parking ordinances will soon be reviewed for that area.
NOTE: Major hope this development will benefit Ventnor residential real estate values.
What we know so far: Outside deck will have two levels and two bars.
Santucci’s Original Square Pizza has Philly locations in the Italian Market, Roxborough and North Philadelphia.
Founded in 1959 by Joseph and Philomela Santucci.
The Santucci’s restaurant is well known for their signature square pizza, pasta, entrees and sandwiches.
