VIDEO: Like its neighbour, downtown pizzeria steeped in Sault history

Just down the street from the old Muio's restaurant — now Ojas — Uncle Gino's serves up a family legacy with every slice

Over the past few weeks, the old Muio's restaurant downtown has generated plenty of local headlines.

It all began with a video of the sudden removal of the restaurant's landmark sign. Then came the emotional full story of how the iconic letters will be preserved for years to come. And finally, the grand opening of Ojas, a new restaurant at the site.

Just down the street, another longtime restaurant is also enjoying a new lease on life. Having just celebrated its first anniversary, Uncle Gino's is serving slices in the same location once occupied by East Street Pizza — and Mrs. B's before that.

SooToday recently caught up with owner Katie Hagerman to talk about her restaurant's family legacy in Sault Ste. Marie.
