New pizzeria in the Museum District

The Devil’s Triangle just added another spot for takeout. Belmont Pizzeria opened last Friday at the corner of Patterson and Belmont in the Museum District.

With three partners — Sal Nuara, his first cousin, Stephen Lackey, and business partner Victor Guevara — it’s truly a family affair.

Melinda and Sal are first generation to the United States. Carl Nuara came to the U.S. in 1960, bringing with him the experience of his father’s bottega in Sicily. The family also maintained a vineyard there with 6,000 grape vines, and olive trees for homemade olive oil.

The Museum District location was a year in the making.

“We were scavengers, going around town,” said Sal of their search for a space. He has been cooking for ten years and has been in the kitchen even longer. He used to have a cafe in the West End but sold it. “I wanted more walking traffic, to stay open later,” he said. Belmont plans to stay open until 11:30 p.m. week nights, and midnight or later on the weekend.
