If you’re a lover of Tutta Bella’s Neapolitan-style pizza, but not so much a fan of the family-friendly atmosphere, you might want to stop by and check out their new glassed-in bar area, dubbed “The Jewel Box”, which officially opened this week.
The Jewel Box is located on the NW side of the building, with easy access from the N. Allen Place entrance. The area has seating and standing room for up to 24 people, and the new bar adds cocktails and spirits to the menu.
Until now, the Stone Way location was the only one of the four Tutta Bella restaurants without a jewel box.
Mallet Design and Construction provided Tutta Bella with a project summary:
The jewel box was conceptualized to provide an adult respite within the bustle and noise of the main dining room of the pizzeria. The transparency of the glass box provides connectivity and at the same time protection from the active surrounding environment. Inspiration is drawn from the ultra-modernist Italian architecture juxtaposed on a more traditional background. The glass allows the space within to blend seamlessly with the original space, as is often seen in restorations of historic monasteries, wineries, and castles in an around Naples.
