In a rapidly changing town, the old-world, fresh pasta place seemed a throwback to Saugatuck’s Italian roots.
After only a year, the Grana guys moved out.
There’s a good reason: They now serve 15 restaurants, and make 250 pounds of pasta a day. They needed a bigger facility. (You can still order online, and pick up your order at Winfield’s coffee shop.)
The space will not be empty for long. The new tenant should also be welcomed by old Saugatuck hands — as well as anyone else who loves good Italian food.
This new spot will be a Romanacci. It will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the morning, a “breakfast pizza” will complement Winfield’s coffee.
The brothers are finalizing their permits now. They hope to be ready around Labor Day.
Winfield owner Breno Donatti says, “They’re cool guys. They know what they’re doing. I’m happy to share the space with them.”
Commuters, Saugatuck residents, and all the rest of us should be happy he’s sharing the space too.
