The owners of Mama Mia ́s Pizza and Cafe on Ballston Avenue were in luck when their next - door neighbor moved out earlier this summer. Giuseppe and Lauren Grisio are looking to pair their 7 - year - old pizzeria, located in the Price Chopper plaza, with a tradit ional Italian cafe and pastry shop now that the Dream Sleep Mattress Outlet has moved to Washington Avenue and left a vacancy. The cafe will feature Italian coffees and espresso, homemade Italian pastries and bread, plus gelato, beer and wine, at both bar and table seating. A lounge in the back could seat 70 for birthday parties, bridal showers, sports team banquets and the like. "We were turning away a lot of parties," due to lack of space at the restaurant, said Lauren Grisio.
