Workers paint the exterior of Patrizia's on April 5, soon to open on Grand Avenue in Maspeth.

A widespread New York-based Italian restaurant and pizzeria is making its return to Queens with a soon-to-open location on Grand Avenue in Maspeth.

Patrizia’s will open on the corner of Grand Avenue and 69th Place — the former site of a McDonald’s — sometime in the late spring or early summer, according to a spokesperson for the restaurant.

While the spokesperson said a target opening date has not been set, renovations to the interior and exterior of the building have been underway for several weeks.

The spokesperson added that the Grand Avenue location was “so eye-catching, it was a no-brainer.” The interior renovations will be modeled after the more traditional style of the chain’s original location in the Tremont neighborhood of the Bronx, with brick walls, dark red paint and wood floors, the spokesperson said.

Founded in 1991, Patrizia’s now has eight locations throughout four of the five boroughs and Long Island. The Maspeth restaurant will be its first in Queens, though the chain once opened a Bayside location that survived for less than a year at a Parks Department-owned building that has been a revolving door for eateries.

Patrizia’s is also working on opening another Long Island location in Massapequa, as well as its first New Jersey location in Old Tappan, according to its website.
