After closing last summer, Scardina Specialties, the family-owned deli which has been serving up Italian staples like spiedini, meatball sandwiches and housemade sausages since 2012, will be reopening in a new location at 715 E. Locust St. In fact, if all goes well, the Italian deli could reopen for business as soon as mid-summer.

And owner Damien Scardina says that the deli plans to have a presence at the Locust Street Festival of Music & Art, even if the building isn’t quite finished yet. Scardina Specialties, which was founded by Peter and Maria Scardina a decade ago at 822 E. Chambers St. – and which swiftly became a beloved staple in the Riverwest neighborhood – has been operated by second generation owner Damien Scardina since 2016.
