Owner Nick Faenza, (pictured with wife Maureen and original owner Angelo Faenza at the cafe’s 40th anniversary party) through the Italian restaurant’s Facebook page, announced it will close Aug. 11.
“ It has been a great run and we appreciate all your support over the years,” he writes.
The cafe on the Hartford/West Hartford line was known as the neighborhood watering hole and the place to go for holiday food on occasions like Easter, Mother’s Day and St. Joseph’s Day. Business however, had slowed down considerably in recent months.

But the cafe, also known for its hopping outdoor patio, is not closing without a celebration.
The Facebook posting notes the cafe will host its regular Karaoke on Aug. 8 and on Aug. 10, there will be a band and a goodbye party.
