A new Italian restaurant is open in Lyon Park, replacing a pizza chain.
Troy’s Italian Kitchen replaced Zpizza at 2710 Washington Blvd in April. The eatery is located between a Discount Tobacco & Phone Cards store and the El Charrito Caminante Mexican and Salvadorian restaurant in a small strip mall.
Troy’s opens each day at 10 a.m. and has garnered mostly positive reviews online so far. An employee at the restaurant said Monday that demand has been good for its customizable pizzas, pastas, paninis and salads.
“People need to eat at different times,” he said of the earlier-than-usual opening hours.
Troy’s stays open until midnight Sundays through Thursdays, and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Inside, there is seating for around a dozen people.
Already, a small collection of art by younger customers is starting to grow on the wall, as well as a review written on a plate.
“Great pizza, great atmosphere, love the thin crust,” it reads. “Can’t wait to try out other pizzas.”
