New management at Beat Da’ Wrap Pizza & Grill

You might think that the owners of Beat Da’ Wrap Pizza & Grill in a Waltham office park are gangster movie fans. A framed poster of “Goodfellas” hangs near the soda machine, alongside a portrait of “The Godfather” with the quote “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.”

Lou Tasiopoulos and Laz Askitis, former owners of The Rack nightclub (now closed) near Faneuil Hall, explain that the posters came with the place when they assumed ownership seven months ago. Chef Carlos Garcia still runs the kitchen, but the mob-themed movie decor — along with the previous owner’s inventory of nutritional supplements — are on their way out. Self-serve frozen yogurt dispensers occupy the space where the vitamin counter used to be. But the duo plans to keep the name of the restaurant. “It’s catchy,” Askitis says, “even though we do more than wraps.”
