Patrons of Springfield Pasta are in for a treat this summer as the store at 186 Saxer Avenue has updated its premises with an open-air look and expanded into new products, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Springfield Press.
Last year, the store that offers homemade pasta and other Italian specialty foods moved some of its pasta-making equipment from Springfield to its new Chester location. This left plenty of room to complete some long-overdue updates.
The Napoletano family who owns the longstanding Delaware County business has given the place a brighter look by taking down a wall, revamping the floor and ceiling, and adding display cases.
In addition to a sandwich counter, a pasta cart, and cases of homemade desserts, the store’s interior now includes fresh and frozen entrée displays. According to Robert Napoletano, recent renovations are just the beginning, as they plan many more changes in the following year.
The family hopes to add a café serving espresso, cappuccino, and other roasted Italian coffee, along with a small restaurant within the store. They also want to expand their current line of pre-prepared food by adding even more take-out options.
