Downtown Peterborough’s popular Taso’s Restaurant & Pizzeria will be opening a second location in Fowlers Corners, northeast of the city of Peterborough on the border of the City of Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough County.
Taso’s has acquired the building at 18 Lindsay Road, the former location of Momma’s Pizzeria that closed in 2020.
While no official opening date has been announced, Taso’s held a pop-up restaurant event at the location on Saturday afternoon (September 3) offering wood-fired pizza, burgers, wings, and more. The event was sold out by Saturday night.
“Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday for an incredible afternoon,” Taso’s wrote on social media on Sunday morning. “We were amazed with the turnout and so grateful for all the warm wishes!”
Taso Hatzianastasiou opened his downtown Peterborough restaurant in 2019 at 287 George Street North, the location of the former Dobro bar, after extensive renovations. The restaurant offers Greek and Italian food, specializing in Sicilian pan pizza.
The second restaurant seems destined to be a success, based on the attendance at Saturday’s pop-up restaurant and the more than 1,100 likes on the Facebook post where Taso’s announced it would be opening in Fowlers Corners.
