Boutique Bocce Court, Italian-inspired restaurant and bar opens at Newport on the Levee this week


A new retailer is slated to open at Newport on the Levee this Friday.

Ashley Barlow can be reached at 859-781-5777. This is an advertisement. 
Rotolo, which is open in the former Axis Alley space, is a full service bar and restaurant that will feature 16 bocce ball lanes, billiards and foosball.

The food menu will feature Italian cuisine.

Rotolo, which means "to roll" in Italian, has indoor and patio seating on the street level of Newport on the Levee.

Its street address is 1 Levee Way and will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.

North American Properties promised to refresh and renew the mall after purchasing it for an undisclosed amount in December of 2018.

They began making good on that promise with the announcement that the building that housed Mitchell's Fish Market, a tenant at the Levee since 2001, would be torn down to make way for a new tenant. What that tenant or tenants is isn't quite clear, but based on drawings by Reztark Design Studio, it will have some open air patio space and be built with two floors.

North American Properties said it will spend $100 million,to upgrade the mall and add a new mix of food, retail and entertainment destinations, but no new tenants have been announced yet.

Over the next year and a half, Cincinnati-based North American plans to re-configure the mall's physical footprint to better take advantage of the panoramic views of the river and Downtown.


Plans also include more parking and a new network of pedestrian walkways that will allow better flow to nearby hotels, apartments and other mixed-use developments, such as the Ovation site under development just west of the mall.
