Transfer Pizzeria is About to Celebrate a Milestone Birthday

Plus: they’re expanding!

Birthday wishes coming up for Transfer Pizzeria Cafe (101 W. Mitchell St.), which celebrates the big 1-0 on Monday, March 12. Restaurant owners John and Russell Rossetto have booked various live acts to celebrate the week. Here’s the lineup:

  • Neil Davis: Tuesday, March 13 at 5:30 p.m.
  • Transfer House Band with Special Guests: Tuesday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Mitch Shiner Quartet: Thursday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m.

The other big news at Transfer is a physical expansion expected to wind up this month. Using available space in the building directly west, the pizzeria has increased its kitchen and prep area and created a new room for events. The extra kitchen space will help service takeout and delivery orders and have a storefront entrance for people picking up their carryout pies. The new events room was built to accommodate parties, meetings, live music and community gatherings. It can seat 60 people for sit-down dining.
