Here's some news that is sure to delight pizza fans: Roberto Caporuscio, the co-owner of celebrated pizzeria Kesté, is opening a new Hell's Kitchen restaurant called Don Antonio with Antonio Starita, the owner of one of the oldest pizzerias in Naples and the vice president of the association of Neapolitan Pizzaiuoli, a group that certifies Neapolitan pie-makers.

The two have signed a ten year lease at 390 W. 50th Street. Naturally, they will serve high-end pizzas baked in a wood-burning oven. Caporuscio notes: "To open a kitchen, with my mentor, in the best country in the world, it’s been my dream to do that." Don Antonio will open this fall.
Update: A broker tells Eater it's 309 W 50th St., and the original Crain's report had the address backwards.
