Kathy and Rich Wakile are eating, drinking, and traveling their way through Italy all in the name of research for their new restaurant.
The former Real Housewife of New Jersey couple is set to open their first restaurant Pizza Love in June.
Obviously, Kathy and Rich’s restaurant will be Italian-themed and serve pizza, Mediterranean eats, and Kathy’s specialty desserts.
On their trip, Kathy is sourcing and researching everything from pasta, olive oil, pizza and other Mediterranean fares and believe me the food is mouthwatering!
It’s clear that Kathy and Rich are doing everything they can to ensure their new restaurant is reminiscent of authentic Italy.
Meanwhile, Kathy’s cousin Joe Gorga and his family opened their own pizza restaurant in May called Gorga’s Homemade Pizza and Pasta.
I’m interested to see which restaurant is better and survives the longest. Jenna and I may need to take a road trip and do a taste test!
Whether you’re #TeamKathy or #TeamMelissa, it looks like there will be plenty of pizza and pasta to go around in New Jersey.
I honestly hope both restaurants succeed. It’s Jersey, and Italian restaurants are a dime a dozen, but both families have the culinary skills to make their businesses succeed plus their fame doesn’t hurt either.
Check out Kathy and Rich’s pictures below! I guarantee they will make you jealous! The food in Italy is amazing, believe me, there’s nothing like it. I need to go back to Italy sooner rather than later.
