Villa Pizze Fritte drive-thru opens in DeWitt and thousands line up for it

As expected, the newly announced Villa Pizza Fritte drive-thru in DeWitt opened with cars backed up into the street waiting for the Fair favorite.

For the first time in its 60 year history, the fried dough stand opened a mobile stand Friday, April 24 in the lot at the corner of Erie Boulevard and Bridge Street.

There were so many cars in line that it caused a traffic jam for miles.

Pizza Fritte Owner, Grazi Zazzara, says, “They were not just buying one bag, they were buying five bags, so it slowed the lines down, and the other problem is there is construction in Erie Boulevard.”

The sheriff’s department had to step in, to help keep the traffic controlled.

“The Town of Dewitt Police and the sheriffs did a great job, and now we hired a bunch of sheriffs to do the traffic, so we should not have any problems for the rest of the weekend,” said Zazzara.

The stand will be open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Saturday they have extended their hours to be open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. because so many people came on the opening day.

The sales are cash only. $4.00 per piece or “ a bag full” of five for $15.

A portion of the sales each day will go towards a charity.

Staff is taking orders at your car and then bringing the Pizza Fritte to you.
