Mazzeo's Planning Move to South Street

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Mazzeo family is moving its famed eatery to new, bigger digs soon.

The Berkshire News Network has learned that the Mazzeos, who own Mazzeo's Ristorante on Winter Street, have entered into an agreement to purchase the closed Asters Restaurant on South Street at an undisclosed price.

Anthony "Tony" Mazzeo said that once the purchase is complete, he plans on moving the Italian restaurant to the new location.

After dealing with parking issues and a small kitchen at the current building, the Aster's location will serve the needs of his customers much better, he said.

The 4-year-old Asters closed abruptly in November, the victim of rising costs and declining dining. The owner, Joseph M. Toole of Lenox, told The Berkshire Eagle the renovated restaurant would go on the market immediately. It seems the Mazzeos took him at his word.


Tony Mazzeo said he has been in negotiations with Asters since Thanksgiving and, if all goes according to plan, the move from Winter Street to South Street could take place as early as April. 

Mazzeo's Ristorante has been at 7 Winter St. since it opened in 1988. The popular eatery caters to all ages and features homemade pastas and desserts.

Mazzeo, who owns the restaurant with his brother Michael, said they don't plan on selling the Winter Street site and will continue to operate the building for weddings and other functions. Mazzeo's also offers catering and banquet services.
