Less than three weeks ago in September, Pontillo’s Pizzeria in the Village of Pittsford shut down after being found in violation of 60 health codes. The discovery of the health codes began when a medical incident with a staff member led to the discovery of needles and blood in the restaurant. Now, the pizza shop has been allowed to reopen and according to the owner, everything has been taken care of.
Christine Woodring, Pontillo’s Pizza owner, stated: “Actually they were cleared up within four days of us closing down, but then we decided to go above and beyond with some painting and some repairs to make it look a little better.” Woodring then went on to state that was ultimately the fire suppression system that shut them down. It has a 12-year lifespan, which ran out during the COVID pandemic, and she said no one was able to inspect it until recently.
