The Triangle will get its first taste of Roman-style pizzas this week, as chef-owned Coronato Pizza opens in Carrboro. The long-awaited first restaurant from chef Teddy Diggs serves up the ultimate in thin crust pizzas. Coronato specializes in a style of Roman pizza with cracker-thin crusts topped with the classics. The new pizza shop will open Thursday, Aug. 22.

Diggs was the longtime chef of Chapel Hill fine dining institution Il Palio, but announced his departure last summer to open Coronato. Over the past year, he’s been testing and previewing his brand of pizza around the Triangle while the restaurant was built. Coronato will be one of the first businesses to open in Carrboro’s new South Green shopping center, located at 101 Two Hills Road, just off of South Greensboro Street in Carrboro.
