Pat's Pizza Vs. Siano's Pizzeria

Two more pizza places are opening up this Spring in the Old Port. Here's a quick look at both of them.

Siano's Pizzeria at 505 Fore Street, (formerly home of Una wine bar and a former home of Portland Pie before that), will be the company's third location. I've never been inside this building but it looks like they are really sprucing up the inside and it has always looked nice from the outside. I am most looking forward to their breakfast options, which a lot of pizzerias seem to overlook. Beyond breakfast pizzas (which are heavenly when done right) they will offer all the regular eggs and pancakes type of stuff. The rest of the menu looks impressive as well.




Pat's Pizza, with many locations around Maine, is finally coming to Portland. They will be at 30 Market Street, which I think is where Market Street Eats used to be (they moved next door). They will occupy three floors, with apparently separate levels for take out, the bar, and family dining. The menu on their website says 'to be decided,' but it's safe to say they will have pizza and sandwiches like all the other locations. They have good pizza pies and I could see them becoming a pizza fan favorite in the area, especially with families.
