Pizzeria and Bocce Courts Concept Coming to Downtown East Lansing

By Natalie Jones / 05.05.22 / 3 min read

We’re excited for Coratti’s Pizzeria! Plans are pending approval for a pizzeria and bocce courts at 321 East Grand River Avenue in downtown East Lansing. The restaurant could open in early 2023.

Martin’s Carson Patten assisted Coratti’s Pizzeria in finding the perfect space for its new location. The site is the former home of Collegeville Textbook Company.
