It's a sad part of the industry that just as new restaurants pop up, other neighborhoods must say goodbye to treasured eateries. Tomorrow, Saturday, April 21, will be the last day of service for Risotto in its Lyn-Lake location.
Chef-owner Gabriele Lo Pinto wrote that despite their positive reviews, they had made the difficult decision to close. "We are quite saddened about the closing, but recognize we have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve our treasured customers a little piece of Italy for the past three years."
Risotto will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. today and tomorrow, then will close for the final time.
