Just saw this on my facebook page for Natoma Station--- anyone hear any more ?

The September 5, 2012 Planning Commission meeting will have 2 items on the agenda regarding businesses in Natoma Station. If you have concerns or questions you can contact the Planner for each project.
The proposals are to be heard at 6:30 under:
NEW BUSINESS:

2. PN12-243, Skipolini's Italian Restaurant, PC Design Review, 191 Blue Ravine
The applicant, Jeff Cazaly on behalf of Skipolini’s Restaurant, is requesting Commercial Design Review approval for exterior modifications to an existing 7,094-square-foot commercial building (former Tahoe Joe’s Restaurant) located at 191 Blue Ravine Road. The project is categorically exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) under Section 15301 (Existing Facilities) of the CEQA Guidelines. Proposed modifications to the existing commercial building include: repainting the exterior of the building, addition of stone veneer to the building façade, replacement of existing river rock columns with stone veneer columns, addition of decorative windows/shutters, replacement of an existing wood patio fence, addition of lattice work, expansion of the outdoor patio area including a new outdoor fireplace, and installation of a children’s play structure with lattice cover. Interior tenant improvements are also proposed and are required to go through the City’s Building Permit process. (Cazaly Consulting, Jeff Cazaly, 759 West Alluvial, #101, Fresno, CA 93711)

Another great  day in the adventure of exploration and sight.

a children's play area in a restaurant? it's a pizza place that sounds like Chuckie Cheese blended with round table.

Oh, dear. When I saw the topic, I thought maybe we were getting a nice, romantic Northern Italian restaurant... this sounds awful.

if you look at the photo galleries of their current locations, it actually looks like a fun, family-friendly place. The Antioch location has an outdoor play area, it's more like a small playground structure, not like McD's tunnel things. It would be great to eat outside and have the kids play while waiting for the food. It's got to be better than a vacant lot, right?!

The original Skipolini's Pizza is located in Clayton, CA which was the first city we lived in when we moved to California. It's success led Skip opening new locations in Walnut Creek and Antioch. The one in Roseville was opened by his son several years ago and is doing well. They have great pizza and I understand the lasagna is quite good. Just a note to add that Skip's grandson won a bronze medal in diving in the London Olympics. I'm pretty excited to have a touch of home come to Folsom.

that's good to hear. I have a lot of young pizza eaters in my life these days so it will be nice to have a fun place to take them.

Anything is better than an empty deteriorating building. Folsomites REALLY need to lighten up... Save your comments for the first week of opening.

The menu looks good to me. Dunno why everyone is pre-judging and dismissing the place already.

Because it's not authentic, or from the Bambino region, or $20/plate.

I basically grew up inside a Peter Piper Pizza and have no problem with this place... probably wouldn't go without kids, but would with.

Where you are in life probably dictates how you feel about this restuarant. Last year I would have wanted a romantic, high quality restaurant to enjoy with my hubby. Now with 2 kids on the way, I'm excited by the family friendly aspect of it and look forward to my kids being old enough to go there. :-)

It also just depends on what one likes.

It was when someone likened it to "Chuck E Cheeze" that I knew it wasn't for me. Terrible pizza and massive sensory overload...

But, there are plenty of people who like it...

It's okay for people to have different tastes and desires in new restaurants!

Have you looked at the menu? It doesn't look like Chuck E. Cheese quality as you're pre-labeling the place. No offense, just saying the menu looks better then credit is being given.
