Pizza shop triples in size

Tony's Pizza Time Cafe, 10 E. Salisbury St., has been a thriving business in downtown Williamsport since 1985. A recently completed remodeling of the restaurant has given it a new look and tripled its size.

"The restaurant industry is changing and you have to keep getting better," said co-owner Tony Scotto.

"The response from the town and our customers has been great. It's a big investment, but if you just stay the same, you become one of the many."

Jim Horn, co-owner, said they not only increased the size and dcor of the dining room, they have added a party room for approximately 40 people. For reservations, call 301-223-6266.


The restaurant plans to add to the menu selection and is now serving beer and wine.

"We're a taste of Italy in the middle of Williamsport," Scotto said.
