I have heard nothing.. It would be unfortunate if it did.. Pizza Shoppe is always my pre concert meal place before a show at Waiting Room...

Announced today on Facebook that Pizza Shoppe is closing. Will be reopening as Virtuoso Pizza owned by Dave and Brenda Losole.

The loss is painful. The new owners are good at their work and should make it nicer than another chain place. Hope they keep the Irish Car Bomb pizza.

I've never been there. Is that "Pizza Shoppe" as in the chain (the title spelled in Gothic lettering)? If so, I never knew Omaha had a Pizza Shoppe location.

This sounds like a net positive. The current owner leaving to run the Benson Theater full time makes me think that could be seeing light soon and it sounds like a very legit replacement is ready to take over.

Yeah this is definitely good news, also wasn't a real big fan of their pizza.

From what I hear, their pizza was mediocre at best. So as others have mentioned, this should be a positive net effect.

Not a rumor anymore.. unfortunately..

Last day of operation will be Saturday, March 11th..

For the record, I quite liked this place.. it has always been my dinner and drink primer spot before a show at The Waiting Room. I'm sad to see it go. While the pizza may not have been "mind- blowing", it was solid imo...

You may be thinking of "The Pizza Place", which changed names to Red's Savoy Pizza about 5 years ago.
