Alino Pizzeria will open in Concord Mills Sept. 1.

The pizza restaurant, which first opened in Mooresville last year, will be in a 6,000 square-foot space at Entrance 1 of the outlet mall, Alino said in a statement Tuesday.

The new Alino will have room for 180 diners, and a patio with room for 60 more. Like the original restaurant, the new location will have long community tables, Italian music, European soccer on TV and big sacks of Napoleon flour lining the walls, Alino also said.

Alino’s menu features nine signature pizzas priced from $14 to $16. The restaurant imports flour, cheese, pepperoni, extra virgin olive oil and truffle oil from Italy and cooks its pies in 800 degree ovens, meaning they’re ready in less than two minutes.

In addition to the new Concord Mills location, Alino also has another restaurant under construction in the Mall of Georgia. It’s expected to open this fall.
