Mercurio’s Gelato & Pizza started as the Mulberry Street Creamery in Kittanning, PA in 1999 by Rick and Linda Mercurio. In 2005, the retail gelato shop was moved to Copeland Street in Shadyside where is was managed by siblings, Anna and Anthony Mercurio, until 2010. The manufacturing and wholesale end of the business remained in Kittanning. In 2011, Anna and her brother Michael decided to move the retail gelato shop from Copeland Street to Walnut Street and add an authentic Neapolitan pizza to the menu of award winning gelato. Mercurio’s on Walnut street is a full service Neapolitan pizza restaurant and artisan gelato, offering salads, appetizers, sandwiches, beer and wine.
In 2019, Anna & Michael, along with their brother Joe, became a sibling trio, opening another Mercurio’s location in the O’Hara Township/Fox Chapel Area. The three also moved the gelato wholesale/manufacturing business from Kittanning to the Fox Chapel location. Guests dining in are able to see the new facility and watch the gelato being made.
