Feeling a deep lack of deep dish pizza lately? It might be because south Minneapolis pizzeria Di Noko's closed seemingly abruptly on November 10. But owner Rich Moore and business partner Travis Phillips have announced plans to reopen in a new location, and thankfully it's happening soon.

On November 22, Di Noko's will launch a new dine-in concept with a causal sports-bar vibe called Di Noko's-Bar Zia in the downtown space formerly occupied by Tickles.

See Also:
The major difference between the original Di Noko's and the new Di Noko's-Bar Zia is that diners will have the option of eating in the restaurant, whereas before their deep dish, wings, and garlic bread were available only for takeout or delivery.

To help foster the neighborhood hangout feel they're going for, Di Noko's-Bar Zia will have several taps dedicated to local beer, reasonably priced wines, and craft cocktails. In addition to the deep dish and Italian classics that made them so well loved in south Minneapolis, Moore says they plan to expand the menu a bit once they get rolling in the new location. Expect more casual fare like burgers, chicken sandwiches, and Philly cheesesteaks.

Di Noko's Bar-Zia will also serve lunch and offer delivery on orders within a certain range of the restaurant, including downtown, south Minneapolis, and all the way up to Broadway in Northeast.

Stay up to date with developments by checking in with the restaurant on Facebook.

I like to think of myself as a pizzaconnoisseur; that being said, where is the best <a href="http://www.riverviewpizza.com">pizza restaurant in Algonquin IL</a>?  I like Chicago Style Pizza by the way.

If the deep dish at Pizzerria Uno couldn't make it here - I don't know if Di Noko's can. Of course, that was in Edina - now the site of Tavern on France so maybe they'll do better with a downtown clientele. Deep dish was too much for those boring suburbanites who just love Dominos and Papa Johns.

Di Nokos is the best! I wasn't a huge fan of the deep dish but the handtossed is delicious. Fresh ingredients and worth every penny.

I think you'd have to try it first. It's not as gross as it looks. There's stuff under that sauce.

I really like the pizza from Italianni's on east lake. they have the pizza made the way a pizza should taste. they also have beer (on tap!) and other foods as well. my second runner up would be a little place is called PIZZA LUCES, um duh?,  ever heard of it? there are a few of them around town and even as far as duluth. their pizza is good to, and they actually put cheese on it not like that pizza in the picture above HERE on the website!!! If i want to eat pizza but do not want to go out to eat the pizza i will eat totinos party pizza. theyre frozen and can be bought at cub or rainbow (at least the one near wendies and target and arbys and the schooner (love that place, YUMMIEST margaritas!!!!) i havent checked the other rainbow for them. All frozen Za's (pizzas) taste pretty much the same, so why pay more? PROTIP: you can buy a cheese and add your own toppings, i put on olives because totinos dont have olives on them. Maybe ill try DiNoko's but im asking them for cheese on mine, and i bet its not better than pizza luces or italiannis!!!!!!

Di Noko's pizza is fabulous! Reminds me of the old Mai Pi pizza from quite some time ago ;)

I had Giordanos in Chicago last week. Hopefully this can come close to how delicious that pizza was.

I love deep dish. Not really feeling this, but I'm sure it's not bad. I'm gonna stick with Giordanos. They have air delivery. Frozen of course

Mmm! That looks amazing! Anyone had it before? How does it compare to UNO pizzeria? They had my fav deep dish until they closed years ago. I will definitely be going there!

It must be my preference for thin crust (or maybe I have yet to enjoy good deep dish?)!

Is it just me out does that pizza look really really gross? Not saying they all are... but that one has WAY too much sauce.

Pizza with giant globs of canned tomato sauce on the top is the absolute worst kind of pizza. All you taste is the sauce, it's awful.

Pizzeria Uno outside of its original location + Pizzeria Due is a notorious pile nothing like the original. Di Noko has established a client base. It's good.

@JCVN Th e Pizzeria Uno in Edina was very good - I ate there a few times before they closed.  Good luck to Di Noko's - I'll certainly give them a try once I find out where there are located now. (Not familiar with the site formerly known as "Tickles.)
