Bringing another full-service dining option to the burgeoning Del Sur Town Center
is South Park’s Piacere Mio, which joins the just-opened North Park transplant Waypoint Public. After transitioning his Fern Street coffeehouse to a popular full-fledged restaurant in 2014, Piacere Mio
co-owner Marco Fontana
says he hopes to introduce some authentic and traditional Italian food into the surrounding North County community. In a bright and modern space by designer Mariapaola Miele
, who also created the look of the South Park flagship, Piacero Mio
has just started serving dinner, but beginning this weekend will be open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The menu is based on South Park’s signatures including antipasti, meat and seafood-based entrees and housemade pasta fashioned in a variety of shapes to pair with different sauces. New to the Del Sur outpost is a wood oven program that fires pizza, foccacia and calzone; it’s headed up by master pizzaiuolo Augusto Folliero
, a fourth-generation pizza-maker whose family has a famed pizzeria in Naples. When he’s not at Piacere Mio, Folliero is running Scugnizzi
, his wood oven-fueled food truck that rolls up and cooks pizza at local breweries. Also new to this location, on top of Italian wines and craft beer, is a cocktail list that ranges from the classic negroni and aperol spritz to an old fashioned with black walnut.
