Amid an onrush of changes in the Quincy restaurant world, one decades-old spot has closed its doors for good, Boston Restaurant Talk reported. Villa Rosa on Adams Street had closed for renovations at the end of June, but it will not be reopening as planned.
A Facebook post from a Villa Rosa employee who had worked there for more than eight years suggested that the closure was a financial decision for the owner, who would "not make the money back that she would have to put into it." Eater has reached out to the restaurant for more details and will provide any updates as they are made available.
Villa Rosa was known for its lineup of hearty Italian-American fare. Its lunch and dinner menus included everything from soups and salads to calzones, pizzas, sandwiches, pasta, and other entrees like veal parmigiana, chicken piccata, and scrod.
Quincy has seen some changes of late, with Kerri Lynch-Delaney’s new 16C moving in on Cottage street, the Townshend team’s plans for a new restaurant, and a spate of restaurants slated for the West of Chestnut development.
