I hope you love pizza, Rochester, Minnesota, because one of the hot spots in the Twin Cities area, Carbone's Pizzeria, is coming to town.  Well, at least that is what I'm hearing.

Is it true that Carbone's Pizzeria will be coming to Rochester, Minnesota?

September 8th is when I first started hearing the rumblings that Carbone's Pizzeria was going to be making a permanent home in Rochester at the old Crooked Pint Ale House at 2723 Commerce Dr NW in Rochester.  I reached out to Carbone's Pizzeria to see if they could verify the info back then but, sadly, I'm still waiting for a response.

Is Crooked Pint Ale House going to reopen in Rochester?

The Crooked Pint Ale House building has been sitting empty for quite some time.  They closed when the pandemic hit and when restaurants could reopen again with limited seating, their doors remained shut.  I reached out to them back in 2020 as well as Goonie's Comedy Club to see what their future plans might be, but once again, it was silence on the other end for me and I never got an answer.  

Earlier this year in June, I got a tip that permits were filed for Crooked Pint Ale House to reopen in the old Cowboy Jack's spot in Rochester.  That full story can be found here.

Although I haven't heard back from Carbone's Pizzeria, Paxton Electric's Facebook page posted a few photos carrying in ladders at the old Crooked Pint Ale House location and let everyone know that they are "Excited to be starting the new Carbone's Pizzeria and Sports Bar in NW Rochester!".


So far, Rochester is not listed as one of the locations on the Carbone's website but you can check out their menu and more about this restaurant here.
