Authentic Neapolitan pizza and award-winning gelato has landed in O’Hara. Mercurio’s, a family owned and operated Italian eatery in Shadyside since 2012, opened a second location in June at 1335 Freeport Road. Three sibling co-owners, Anna Crucitt and Michael and Joe Mercurio, were raised around the original family gelato business that opened in 1999 — Mulberry Street Creamery, in Kittanning.

The trio chose the Freeport Road address for expansion, recently relocating the gelato creamery operations from Kittanning to O’Hara. “The main reason we opened in (O’Hara) is because we’ve been driving to Kittanning for three years, making and delivering gelato. We needed something closer to the city. The location we are currently in was zoned for both manufacturing and retail, which was perfect,” Crucitt says.
