Yep, Nello's in Old Town Scottsdale is no more.
There's no pizza deficit, though. Now, in place of that longstanding local favorite is a new, family-owned restaurant called Jac's Pizzeria. It opened about a month ago at 7213 E. 1st Ave.
The website isn't up yet, but look for East Coast-style thin-crust pizzas with homemade sauces. Donald Rini (Marriott Camelback Inn) is the executive chef.
