Cliftons Pizza location to get new life, new restaurant

A staple of the Clifton neighborhood will get life and a new name.

Cliftons Pizza closed suddenly in September, much to the dismay of pizza enthusiasts the city over.

Now, Steve-O’s Italian Kitchen will open a second location at the spot, bringing pizza back to Cliftons’ fans.

Steve-O’s first location is in LaGrange, KY. It opened in 2005. The restaurant serves pizza, pasta, subs, wings, and more.

The owner says he plans to keep the menu at the Clifton location simple at the start, adding on things as they go.

It won’t take much for Steve-O’s to move in; the owner said he plans to keep much of the building the same but update some cosmetic touches and add some fryers to the kitchen.

He said he is excited to come to the area and hopes to hire people for the new location soon.

The plan is to open the restaurant on Dec. 1.
