A favorite spot for Watertown pizza lovers will be closing after 40 years serving local diners.
Andrea’s House of Pizza in Coolidge Square will be closing this week, said Alex Taoultsides, who co-owns Andrea’s with his father Stratos.
“Our last day is August 19th,” he said. “After 40 years it’s time to retire.”
The pizzeria’s closing was reported on the Boston Restaurant Talk website on Aug. 15.
Andrea’s has been making, subs, wraps, as well as Italian and Greek dishes at 620 Mt. Auburn St. since 1982.
If I am not mistaken, the original Andrea’s was at the spot now occupied by Red Lentil. When I was a kid, they used to have fish on Friday’s and my grandmother and the other Armenian ladies would go there for that.
Sad. What a great piece and a big piece of Watertown history!!
Who wrote the headline for this piece? You might want to proofread it, it makes no sense.
It’s always been my favorite pizza.
It will be a big loss to me. 🙁
We’ll miss Andrea’s!
I’ll really miss Andrea’s. It’s been my go-to place for more than 30 years. Thanks for all those years of great pizza.
