The latest casualty of our long-suffering local restaurant scene is, apparently, Mangia Ristorante Pizzeria in Lafayette – which alerted patrons of its closure with a notice taped to its window.
Owner Chris Frumenti did not elaborate on his rationale for closing the popular after-game, post-theater pizzeria, declaring Saturday their last day and thanking his customers for their loyalty.
The announcement, or taped notice, came rather suddenly and there has been no discussion that we’re aware of for a possible successor or of Frumenti’s plans for the future.
We’ll take a moment to digest the news and keep an eye on developments at the La Fiesta Square location. Thoughts, Pizza People?
