Jersey City, N.J. (Jan. 15, 2013) – Jersey City’s booming waterfront will get its first family-style Italian restaurant this month when Loradella’s Family Pizzeria opens at 126 River Dr., a 4,000-square-foot, ground-floor retail space at Newport’s Aquablu apartment tower. Owned by George and Lorraine Arthur, the new Italian eatery will be the 16th addition to The Restaurants at Newport, a diverse collection of upscale to fast casual restaurants located at Newport, the LeFrak Organization’s mixed-use development community on the Hudson River in Jersey City.

“George and I were looking to start a new project and discovered Newport at the recommendation of our chef and manager, Adel, who lives nearby. We immediately fell in love with the location,” said Lorraine Arthur, co-owner of Loradella’s Family Pizzeria. “At Loradella’s, we hope to bring Newport a family-friendly atmosphere and good food at a reasonable price. We know the kids are going to love the arcade too.”

Open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Loradella’s Family Pizzeria will have a 64-seat dining area, by-the-slice pizza counter, takeout services and delivery.  The restaurant will also feature a children’s arcade with 12 token-operated games, including Skeeball, Air Hockey, miniDunk Basketball, Pac Man Arcade and Global Arcade Classics. Additionally, a party room will be available for hosting events, dinners and make-your-own pizza parties for kids. Menu prices will range from $2.10 for a slice of pizza to $14.50 for Italian comfort-food entrées.

“Loradella’s Family Pizzeria will be a great addition to the restaurant line up in Newport,” said Fermin Garcia, general manager of Newport. “With our new park, Newport Green, and Newport Skates close by, residents and visitors alike are going to make Loradella’s their new favorite go-to restaurant. We’re excited to officially welcome Loradella’s to the community.”
