Villetta Now Closed In Brentwood

It was slow, it was painful, and we all saw it coming:  With stories of a Chapter 11 late last year, the exodus of staff to other Italian restaurants across town, and gossip of no wine inventory, it seemed that Villetta had been doomed for a while.  And now comes the final sad news from a piece of paper propped up in the window that Villetta closed on Friday, June 13th.  Open in the old Chez Mimi space (246 26th St.) since March 2011, everyone was hopeful for a long successful run, but that, however, was not meant to be. All is not lost though, as the paper in the window does seem to hint at a reopening at some point in the future, so we’ll just have to see.  Until then, you can read my original review here.
