Capri Pizza & Subs in Arlington Heights Is Closed Again

A suburban pizzeria that has been in business for a quarter century has closed once again, and it is not yet known if/when it may reopen.

A check on the place over the past several days indicates that Capri Pizza & Subs in Arlington Heights is locked up and dark, with posters within the Facebook page of The Arlington List confirming that it has been shuttered for awhile now--possibly for the past several weeks. No reason has been given for the closure of the Mass. Ave. spot, though there has been some chatter about why it may have closed; as soon as we get confirmation on what exactly has happened with Capri, we will post an update here.

Capri also quietly shut its doors in early March of 2016, but reopened a month later--apparently under new ownership--with the previous owner of the pizzeria appearing to offer to help in the reopening of the shop. The eatery first opened in the early 1990s, taking over what had been Charlie's Pizza.

The address for Capri Pizza is 1323 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476.

[April 27 update: The Arlington Advocate mentions that the owner of Capri--Miltos Athanasopoulos--would need to complete a plan review process if he wishes to open it back up, noting that "it may have difficulty" doing so; the article says that the dining spot changed ownership last year without going through a proper plan review process at the time, and the town had asked Athanasopoulos to make some changes to the place after the ownership change, but at least some of these changes have still not been made.]
