When we embarked on the journey to open a restaurant as part of our marina redevelopment efforts, we didn’t know what to expect. We had several ideas of what the restaurant could or should be, but nothing absolute. We wanted a dockside bar with food, but much more. We wanted to achieve a casual, “flip-flop fancy” establishment, that found the balance of comfort with elevated service and food. But what would we serve?
As fate would have it, we were fortunate enough to connect with Frank and Tommy Macri in 2021. Frank and Tommy founded and operated Canandaigua’s famous Macri’s Deli and Café at the old Wegman’s Plaza before moving to our city pier location. One customer favorite that didn’t make the move was their pizza. There was simply no room for the oven at the new location. We didn’t think it was a big deal as Macri’s was all about the sandwiches. If we said we were wrong, that would be an understatement!
When talk of a restaurant concept came up again, we knew it had to be all about the pizza. As we learned more about Frank and Tommy’s unique pizza “al taglio” recipe, preparation, training, imported Italian pizza oven and special flour, we knew we were on the right path. Also having spent time in Italy and enjoying true roman pizza with its unique attributes made it an easy choice for us. Priority number one quickly became bringing back pizza al taglio and building on Macri’s excellent reputation for food and service. Blend that with great local and Italian wines along with dockside dining on the beautiful north end of Canandaigua Lake and you have one heck of a recipe. We had our direction and it felt just felt right – like a nice Sunday meal waterside on the lake with the family. Hopefully you will agree that we have created something special.
