A few months ago, Heather and Terry Montgomery were vacationing in Minnesota, but they could not find a restaurant that served New York-style pizza.

So they decided to stay and open their own shop.

Named after their son, Victoriano's New York Style Pizza and Pasta served its first meals Feb. 20. The restaurant offers more than 15 varieties of pizza and daily specials in the Isaac Staples Sawmill Building at 402 N. Main St. in Stillwater.

Along with serving whole pies and "the largest slices" in Stillwater, Heather Montgomery said Victoriano's also offers strombolis and calzones large enough to feed two people.

The menu includes two varieties of homemade Italian desserts, cannolis and tiramisu, and New York cheesecake.

The restaurant will be adding pasta dishes to the menu in the near future, Heather Montgomery said.

Dine-in, takeout and delivery are available from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Mondays through Saturday. For more information, call 651-430-3700 or www.

Haircuts are $18 for adults and $15 for ages 18 and younger, and they come with a shampoo, head and neck massage and hot towel treatment. There's a TV at every styling station, so customers can watch the game of their choice while getting their hair clipped.
