Milana's Squared Away

Milana’s Brooklyn Squares is cooking up pies for its official grand opening Monday, Sept. 9.

The new pizza place at 2000 Ximeno Ave. is owned by the same folks who operate Milana’s New York Pizzeria in downtown Long Beach at The Streets (165 E. Fourth St.).

To celebrate the second Milana’s location, owner Adriel Fasci and his son Cameron are hosting a ribbon cutting at 11:30 a.m. Monday, followed by $2 deal on two squares of pizza from noon to 2 p.m. (limited to two squares per person).

Fasci first opened Milana’s New York Pizzeria in 2010 and said the sauces, marinara and meatballs are all housemade and of the highest quality, premium tomatoes and meats. All ingredients for the day are sliced and prepped for that day only.
