Read – Following the January 15 death of owner and namesake Timothy Spence, the fate of Timothy’s Pizzeria and Restaurant, at 54 Main Street has been unknown. Until now.

Enter Rebecca and Gilbert Clerget, chef owners of Café Triskele just down the block at 150 Main, with Rebecca Clerget having been granted a business certificate on April 2 for the 1,386-square foot site she said will be renamed “appetito.” Their lease of the premises began last month, with the Clergets purchasing Timothy’s furniture, fixtures and equipment after Spence died.

Appetito’s food and ambiance focus will continue to be Italian, featuring 15 to 16 varieties of Neapolitan-style gourmet pizzas, salads, charcuterie, pasta and arancini and housing a gelato and espresso bar, Rebecca Clerget told The Berkshire Edge. Carry-out and sit-down options will be available for the eatery set to be open daily except Mondays, with shortened hours from 4-9 pm until it is fully staffed. The business will transition to a noon to 9 pm schedule in the summer.

Although the site is changing hands, Lee locals will still be able to find pizza, with new favorites to be created along with a gelato and espresso bar. An early May opening is scheduled.

Slated for an early May opening, Rebecca Clerget said she and Gilbert are “hoping for an upbeat vibe” with music and soccer games on the television. They’ve already started transitioning the spot by cleaning, organizing and painting.

For the Clergets, the two restaurants being so close in proximity is definitely an advantage, with Rebecca Clerget joking that roller skates to glide between the sites might be in order.

She said she is planning for Spence’s team to continue in the new establishment and called his death and Timothy’s closure “a shock felt throughout the town.”

“We’re excited to be in [Timothy’s] space and keep it running like an Italian restaurant,” Rebecca Clerget said. “We’re just glad to keep carrying the torch.”

A public hearing on the annual all alcohol restaurant license for the project is scheduled for Tuesday, April 16 at 7 pm in the Lee Select Board’s office.
