Pizzeria Deepo re-opens

Pizzeria Deepo, 1742 W. 99th St., re-opened under new ownership on April 2. Karlie Hernandez, 22, of Beverly, now owns the restaurant, which she worked at for six years. Many menu items will remain the same, Hernandez said, including deep-dish pizza made with the same recipe, as well as Italian beef and Italian sausage. New menu items include Italian sausage tortellini soup, chicken Caesar salad and Caprese salad. The restaurant was formerly owned by Jeanette Dixon, who put it up for sale last year. Hernandez, who attended Beverly Montessori School, St. Barnabas Elementary School and Mother McAuley High School before graduating from the University of Illinois-Chicago in December 2018, is excited about her new venture. “I know the business enough,” she said. “I feel like I know where I can take it.” Pizzeria Deepo, which features an outdoor patio, is open from 4-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, with private parties available every day of the week. The restaurant will continue to be “BYOB,” and there is a $2-per-person charge for patrons bringing alcohol in order to account for the restaurant providing openers and ice buckets, and to offset the city’s minimum wage increase this summer. Pizzeria Deepo can be reached at (773) 840-3087. (Review photo)
