“We get a lot of out-of-towners who want to eat here as a family.  …and the price is right!” which placed an idea in Linda Wigginton’s mind that simply would not go away.  Linda, owner, operator and chief chef at Thatzza Pizza – Monticello needed more space to expand and create a dine-in area.  Even though there were picnic tables outside the business, they could not accommodate many; bad weather was a huge deterrent as well. 

Spring of 2019, a business space finally became available next door; Tom, her husband, and Linda snapped it up and began to build the dream.  Tuesday, May 21, 2019, “Eatzza Your Pizza Here” opened up where the public could order their meals at the main area up front, then bring their food to the dining area.  Sound too inconvenient?  Plans are still in the works for opening up a doorway between the two sections; patience grasshopper, this too shall come to fruition.

The interior of the dine-in area took a lot of muscle, knocking down walls, rewiring, painting, new wooden flooring; the addition of metal wall panels and signature lighting giving it a modern, yet comfortable feel.  Booth seats, chairs and tables line both sides of the walls currently, but there is another plan in the works – a buffet unit.  Imagine, a half hour or hour for lunch, where to grab a fast meal that is made fresh?  Workers, visitors on a tour itinerary, anyone in general will be able to stop in, sit down and manga’, or fill up a take-out box for eating on the go.  For Monticello, this will also be a unique addition to restaurant fare and this also means, Thatzza Pizza will be open for lunch!

For those who have not tried out Thatzza Pizza, the menu is more than just pizza, it includes pasta dishes, salads, cheesy bread, wings with 7 different sauces to choose from. 

Dessert?  Try out cinnamon sticks, one of the new dessert pizzas, or an ice cream favorite with soft or hard pack – shakes, sundaes, cones (crispy waffle or regular), cups, or a warm, freshly made waffle bowl.  Mmmm, you can even get a root beer float or banana split; sounds like something available for whatever you are craving!

Sitting here, watching snow fall on this near-the-end of May day, Eatzza Pizza could not have come at a better time.  Especially for new visitors to the area who are very confused about the weather, but still need a great meal away from the cold.  Thatzza Pizza can give it their all now!
