The return of a classic restaurant is underway in the Town of Farmville.

Perini Pizza will soon open at 308 N. Main St., at the former site of The Shoppes at Poplar Hall.

Owner Tony Perini said the Italian restaurant is set to open June 5.

Perini described having a following in the community with his pizzas. The dough and sauces in his pizzas are homemade.

“All you have to do is ask around town,” Perini said.

He described the pizza as a thin-crust, “New York Style, homemade dough, homemade sauces.”

“I never have a can that says pizza sauce on it,” Perini said, keeping mum on the pizza sauce ingredients.

He said the restaurant is expected to bring between 12 to 14 jobs.

Perini said he has previously operated pizza restaurants both in town and in New Jersey as far back as the 1970s, with approximately 40 years of experience making pizza and operating businesses.

He said the process to open the restaurant began in late March.

“I’ve been very busy the last two months, month and a half,” Perini said.

A walk into the restaurant reveals a comfortable but elegant atmosphere with cushioned booths and scenery paintings ready to be hung on the walls.

In addition to pizza, Perini said guests can look forward to salads, subs and baked ziti. The restaurant has two pizza ovens, stacked on top of each other at 4 and a half feet deep and 5 feet across that can make up to 10 pizzas at a time.

He said the menu will be focused on quality over quantity.

“I just want to make some good pizzas, and subs, and salads,” Perini said.
