D'Amore's Famous Pizza has plans to open its second location in Malibu this week.
The soft opening is set for Friday, Feb. 1 at the Point Dume Village and will only offer pizza and salads, according to owner Joe D'Amore, who plans to be on hand to talk to customers.
"All the veggies are organic and the meats are hormone and steroid free. They are natural, grass-fed, even the sausage and everything," D'Amore said. "Of course we have vegan cheese and gluten free crust and our regular dough is imported from Italy along with the water."
The menu will be expanded to sandwiches and pastas once more equipment arrives in the coming weeks. The official opening will be shortly after that, D'Amore said.
The restaurant is opening at the former location of Point Pizza Malibu, which closed on New Years Eve after the landlord, Zan Marquis, opted not to extend the lease and bring in D'Amore as part of an effort to offer a healthier menu.
D'Amore's Famous Pizza has another location in Malibu at 22601 Pacific Coast Highway.
