To our Il Localino Family,

With heavy hearts, we are closing the doors of Il Localino due to unforeseen circumstances.

For those of you who have seen the announcement on social media, thank you for your outpouring of love and appreciation for our beloved restaurant and staff. The kind comments and memories that have flood into our inbox are the very reason that our hearts are so heavy while closing this chapter of our lives.

We want you to know that the unforeseen circumstances are not due to either Professor Giovanni or Mama Gale's health. They are both healthy and well!

Most of all we want you to know that we love you! Professor Giovanni and Mama Gale have loved every moment of the last 20 years of their lives getting to serve you, getting to know you and getting to be apart of the special moments you’ve shared with the entire Localino team. Thank you for sharing birthdays, promotions, anniversaries, weddings, friendship celebrations and holidays with all of us for so many years.

We aren’t sure what the future holds but we can promise you that we won’t be strangers. Our passion for food, friends and making memories will not disappear as we close the doors of Il Localino. Rather, they will manifest in new ways as we continue to do what we love. Thank you for being a part of our Localino Family.

GoFund me information for our Il Localino employees will be posted on our social channels soon.

We love each and every one of you.

"True champions always rise again." - Professor Giovanni

With love and gratitude,

Mama Gale, Professor Giovanni and the Il Localino staff
