Owners Katie and Ted Collier have opened the much-anticipated second location of Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria in Town & Country at 14171 Clayton Road. The restaurant opened its doors Wednesday, Aug. 16.

The menu at Town & Country is the same as the flagship Rock Hill restaurant’s menu, featuring a seasonal array of house-made pizzas and pastas, so regulars are assured to get their favorite dishes, all crafted in an open kitchen.

The bright, airy space used to house an Einstein’s Bros. Bagels. Plenty of natural light floods the interior thanks to the abundance of windows, while the decor features mismatched chairs and tables, including some tables from the original Katie’s Pizza in Clayton.

Artwork by Ted Collier and Belinda Lee, Katie’s mother, adorn the walls, while unfinished concrete floors and exposed brick add a touch of industrial chic to the design. The restaurant seats 90 and includes an expansive patio area dotted with planters, some of which are full of herbs and peppers for use in the kitchen.

According to Katie Collier, the 2017 Reader’s Choice Chef of The Year, the opening has been hectic, but has gone well.

“It’s been busy,” she said. “But I have to give props to Jake (Sanderson), my chef de cuisine, and the crew. So far, we haven’t had any hiccups.”

She said employees at the new location trained for a month at the Rock Hill location, which helped the opening go smoothly.

Katie’s Pizza & Pasta’s Rock Hill location hosts a Giveback Tuesday event on the second Tuesday of each month, donating a portion of each sale to a nonprofit. The Town & Country location will host the same event fourth Tuesday of the month to support another area nonprofit.

Hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Here’s a first look at the newest location of Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria:
