Stella Giannaris and her husband, Dimitris Sfakianakis, closed the pizzeria for six weeks to make the renovations.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Olympic Pizza has reopened on Main Street after substantial renovations.
Owner Stella Giannaris has reopened the eatery with a new look and expanded menu after being closed for six weeks.
"After all the support we have received from our faithful customers we found ourselves in a position to give them a vibrant dining experience," she said. "As a result, we decided to redesign and upgrade the Olympic concept."
Giannaris said she took ownership of the pizzeria in 2011 and knew then that the establishment needed some upgrades.
Just about everything in the restaurant has been remodeled, inside and out. She pointed out the new floors, tables, lighting and said even the bathrooms and exterior were overhauled.
"We remodeled the exterior and interior of the building and added a small bar," she said. "Soon we will be serving cocktails and Greek specialty drinks. It adds a nice atmosphere to our restaurant."
Giannaris said the menu was also expanded to contain more traditional Greek and Mediterranean dishes — including lamb.
"All our regular customers have returned since we reopened and have been giving us excellent feedback," she said. "People tell us they love our new menu and are creating a wonderful, casual dining experience."
Giannaris added that it continues to be a pleasure operating in North Berkshire County.
"Williamstown and the greater area have been a welcoming community that attracts people from all over the world," she said.
