ROYAL OAK, Mich. – The Joe Vicari Restaurant Group introduced the closure of Andiamo Trattoria in Royal Oak on Saturday.
The restaurant had been situated at 129 S. Main St. in Royal Oak for 19 years. Joe Vicari, Owner of Joe Vicari Restaurant Group, believes the elimination of a close-by parking zone brought on the decline in enterprise.
“We are deeply saddened to close Andiamo Trattoria in Royal Oak after being a part of the community for almost two decades, but unfortunately, our hand was forced,” Vicari mentioned. “The metropolis of Royal Oak has taken away 100 p.c of the restaurant’s parking in addition to our patrons’ capacity to valet park their vehicles, which has severely impacted our enterprise. This, coupled with our landlord’s unwillingness to restructure our lease, has made it inconceivable for us to remain in enterprise in Royal Oak.”
Employees are being relocated to different Vicari eating places, that are remaining open.
“We wish to thank all our customers and the community for supporting us for so many years,” Vicari mentioned. “We’ve loved serving this community and wish we could have stayed here.”
