Former Pizzeria Remains Vacant

The former Ricciardi's Famous Pizza has been vacant since early 2012.

Located at 2106 Hempstead Turnpike, the former Ricciardi's Famous Pizza has been vacant since the beginning of 2012.

Hal, owner of the adjacent Global Kitchen and Bath, said that since he has been in business, two pizzerias have opened and closed at the location.

"I have been here for six years and it has closed twice," he said. "Before pizzerias were there, it was a nail salon."

Arlene, an employee of the nearby Masters Auto Collision, said that she was told that another pizzeria will move into the location.

"I was told that it was going to be rented by another pizza shop," she said. "The person that is coming in has a good following."

Hal said that the vacant storefront is a tough one to keep open.

"It is not a good location for retailers," he said.

What do you think should open at the location? Tell us in the comments below.

It's a bad location. You don't see until you pass it. By the time you can make a U-Turn, you've come across other pizza places or places to eat. The pizza was just fair to begin with. I'm really not surprised that it closed.

Plain and simple.I wanted to try it but you have to slow down without getting rear ended first to see if you can park in the lot.If you can't park you just go right by and eat somewhere else.Once the owner and the help park there's nothing left
