Batavia Pontillo's announces name change

There are lots of bright lights in Batavia this time of year, but a legendary one has been turned off.
When you drive down Main Street tonight, the familiar green and red neon sign of Pontillo's will be dark.
The restaurant will be open, but under a new name: Batavia's Original.
Earlier this year, the location's new owner, Batavia Pizza, LLC, a creation of Thomas Masaschi, Jeffrey Reddish and Jason Teller out of Rochester, were served with a lawsuit charging trademark infringement by the Pontillo family in Rochester.
No word on the status of the suit.
