In This Month's Krier
A Little Bit of Italy Here in Killingworth
La Foresta is open for your wining and dining pleasure. For the past several months, Killingworth residents have watched eagerly as the 4,700-square-foot building on the corner of Killingworth Turnpike and Stevens Road was transformed into an Italian restaurant and wine bar.
La Foresta boasts a rustic chic décor and incorporates a main dining room with seating available on the first floor or mezzanine, a bar seating close to 30 people with surrounding high top tables and a wine room for exclusive parties and events.
The wine bar proffers over 25 wines by the glass. La Foresta also has over 185 bottles of red and white wines from around the world. The layout of the building needed a complete remodeling in order to create the proper flow from room to room and enough intimate spaces for people to enjoy their dining experience, notes owner Francesco Lulaj.

First, I'd like to welcome Franco Piscitelli as our newest board member. He is a Certified Financial Planner with the Barnum Financial Group. He and his family live here in Killingworth. He is eager to help the Chamber move in a forward direction and help support our ongoing events.
We also welcome a bit of re-direction of the Chamber Board from our Marketing Director - Peg Scofield. We have allocated funds to use for her services that will help the Board refocus on its mission; connect with business owners on a frequent basis; help bring new members to the Chamber; and continue to be a key contact person in our event planning. For questions regarding membership or getting involved in Chamber sponsored events please do not hesitate to contact Peg at (203) 641-2341.
I am super excited to announce our newest Chamber member and wonderful addition to our town- La Foresta Restaurant and Wine Bar on Rt. 81, here in Killingworth.
