It looks like Coney Island will have to muddle along for half the summer without Totonno's pizzeria.
The classic old pizza joint has been shuttered since a fire in mid-March. At the time, the owner Lawrence Ciminieri pledged the place would reopen in a month's time. A walk-by on May 11, however, found the place this closed. A call to Totonno's Manhattan locations revealed that mid-July is now the target unveiled. Let's hope so. Coney, so denuded of its many former attractions, needs its world-class pie.
