The actual space for Fatto Con Amore has had many previous lives. It has been home to Table Leg Home, a gift and home design store, and Isaiah Hemmingway Bespoke, a custom tailoring shop.

Per NorthJersey.com, the shop plans to offer specialty Italian meats + artisan cheeses on custom-made breads as well as imported pantry goods, cured meats, and cheeses.  During the pandemic, while many restaurants were closed, Chef Felice used one of his existing restaurants, Viaggio, as a mini-market and deli, selling pantry goods and sandwiches.

The team settled in Montclair for a three-month stint in Montclair at The Clubhouse. “It felt really good,” Chef Robbie said. “It was the middle of the pandemic so we still had only a small group of diners, but it felt great to be able to do something creative and keep people employed.”

The restaurant is located at 6 South Fullerton Avenue and is open for dinner seven days a week. It is a BYOB. “Coming back to Montclair is huge for us,” Chef Robbie said. “There’s no other town I’d want to do this in. Montclair is the perfect place to bring a non-traditional concept. Montclair is its own restaurant capital and it’s super different.”

The Montclair Girl will update this piece with more information as the restaurant is closer to opening.
