The owners behind Italian Eatery in Minneapolis plan to open another Italian restaurant in St. Paul. The restaurant, called Due (pronounced Due-eh) Focacceria, will take over a former Espresso Royale space at 475 Fairview Ave. South. Owners Eric Carrara and his wife, Vanessa live a couple blocks away from the site, and bought the building in 2017 with intentions to add another restaurant.
