No more mangia!

Sad news for lovers of Italian cuisine,  a longtime North End restaurant announced plans to close at the end of this year.

Ristorante Fiore, a long time staple of Hanover Street an Italian restaurant with a traditional dining room and roof deck, made the announcement by posting on social media on Wednesday.

Ciao!

“After much thought, I am hanging up my apron and will retire to spend time with my family, my incredible grandchildren, and do some hunting and fishing,” the owner said. “Ristorante Fiore has been sold, and our final service will be on December 25.”

“Having the passion to serve all of you has given me much joy for all these years, and now I look forward to the next phase of my life,” the post said. “I hope to see you before we close for the final dinner service!”
