Villa Rosa in Quincy May Be Reopening
A landmark Italian restaurant that closed earlier this summer may be returning.
According to a poster on this site, Villa Rosa in Quincy has a newly-designed website up and a Yelp page for the Adams Street dining spot says that it is now "temporarily closed" and that it plans to reopen on August 21. The eatery shuttered for renovations in late June and made the decision not to reopen a few weeks later, with an exact reason for the closure not being given (though there were hints that it may have been a financial one related to the proposed upgrades to the place).
Villa Rosa, which first opened about 65 years ago, was a family-friendly restaurant that was known for its pizza and pasta dishes.
The address for Villa Rosa is 703 Adams Street, Quincy, MA, 02169. Its website can be found at http://villarosaquincy.com/
[August 15 update: The Patriot Ledger says that city officials now want to know exactly what is happening with the Villa Rosa space, and there will be a licensing board meeting tomorrow (Tuesday, August 16) to try to find out the exact status of the still-closed restaurant.]
[August 17 update: A new article from The Patriot Ledger indicates that the future of Villa Rosa is very much up in the air, as an attorney for the restaurant says that at this point, he doesn't know if the place will reopen or be sold and become another dining spot. The post also says that the licensing board may take the restaurant's license away if a plan is not put into place by the end of the year.]
