Original owners renovate, reopen Antonio's Pizza
__Antonio and Eda Xhokola have returned to Shelton as the owners of Antonio's Italian Style Pizza at 151 Center Street.
The Couple opened Antonio's in 2001 and ran it for three years before moving to Myrtle Beach, SC, in 2004.
They returned to Shelton in 2008 and bought back their former pizza business at the beginning of 2010 at the urging of many friends and former customers.
"We are so happy to be back with our family and friends," said Antonio." So many customers had become a part of our family before we moved away. We couldn't leave the restaurant closed."
After extensive renovations, Antonio's reopened in August for dine-in and take-out service. It is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sunday, 4-9 p.m., and offers lunch specials and free delivery in Shelton and parts of Ansonia.
