St. Louis pizza chain Racanelli's is planning a fifth location in the Delmar Loop. Don't confuse it with Racanelli's Cucina, which used to be where Market Pub House is now, though it was owned by the same people. Racanelli's serves huge, New York-style pizzas, pizza-by-the-slice, sandwiches and the like. The original location actually opened right here in University City in 1994.

Now, there are locations in Webster Groves, the Central West End, Kirkwood and St. Peters. The sign says it's opening Fall 2014, but owner John Racanelli did not immediately respond to emails for comment. We'll update when we hear from him.
