Could Pontillo's in Batavia soon be a Pontillo's again?

What's up with Pontillo's? I get asked that question nearly every day. We've all seen the work crews there.
What a couple other people have seen is Sam Pontillo at the 500 E. Main St., Batavia, location.
Over the past two weeks I've called Sam Pontillo several times. I've left a few messages. I have not heard back from him.
I've also called the property owner, Thomas Masaschi, and left messages. No return call.
Admittedly, third hand, I've heard that another restaurant owner tried to buy the old Pontillo's sign and was told it wasn't for sale -- that there were plans for it.
So at this point, we only have rumors and speculation, but for all the people who keep asking me what's going on, that's the only answer I can give at this point.
