An Italian-American family that tried for years to buy an empty restaurant near home is preparing to open Antonio’s Pizzeria in Gautier, MS. Now the owners of that restaurant at 2120 Ladnier Road, just off U.S. 90, are renovating it inside and out, with “a sit down, homey feel,” said Antonio Palazzolo.
