Giorgia Somma, the co-founder and owner of Mozzarella Store Pizza & Caffe, a bilevel Italian restaurant coming to Downtown Chicago across from the historic Water Tower, isn’t too fond of mozzarella made in America. Somma, a native of Naples, Italy last year invested in a dairy farm about 175 miles east of Chicago in Warren, Indiana. The Mozzarella Store will give Somma’s company a retail base to sell cheese as well as Neapolitan pizza, coffee, and small plates.

The Chicago location, 822 N. Michigan Avenue (the former Hershey’s Chocolate World), would be Somma’s first and they plan on opening 20 to 30 locations over the next five years across the U.S. Somma is targeting a late May opening on the Mag Mile.
