Former Il Pizzaiolo in Market Square closed permanently as property goes on the market downtown

PITTSBURGH — Another well-established restaurant downtown has decided to call it quits.

Il Pizzaiolo, one of the many restaurants Ron Molinaro introduced to downtown before he sold out his ownership stake in the Market Square restaurant, has opted not to renew an option on its lease, triggering the property to go on the market for lease and the restaurant’s liquor license, fixtures and equipment to go up for sale.
