Adriatico's moves after this weekend

The best pizza spot on campus is moving following this weekend.

Yes, Adriatico's is moving. The 38-year-old pizza joint is set to leave its current historic location after this weekend and head to the former Aveda Salon just about a block away at 10th and Neil avenues.

“We’re thrilled. Staying in the same neighborhood is a really good outcome for us,” Adriatico’s owner Greg Fortney told the Columbus Dispatch.

According to Fortney, the restaurant plans on expanding both its kitchen and dining room in the new location, as well as increasing the number of beers on tap and also introduce chicken wings to the menu.

"We’re keeping all of the things everybody loved, but we’re adding some new things and making it a little nicer than the old one used to be,” Fortney said.

In place of the old Adriatico's, the university flower shop, and the Huntington bank branch, Ohio State will be building a new optometry clinic and more offices, expected to cost about $28 million. 

The new Adriatico's will open Tuesday, August 21.
