A restaurant has closed in Ponte a Serraglio. Ristorante da Vinicio had been around for ages. When we first came 14 years ago it was busy every night. Here is a photo from back then.
In summer there were tables along the river, giving the little piazza a lovely festive atmosphere.
A death in the family and a serious illness have brought on the closure of the business. It will be missed this summer.
We need a restaurant at Ponte a Serraglio. Bruno’s is great, but one is not enough, particularly in the summer.
I don’t know any details about buying or renting the space, I just know that it needs a new family to take over…anyone out there?
It is always a pity when a business closes down for any reason. I hope it will be replaced soon…
Me too. There is an opportunity here for someone. We definitely need more than one restaurant in summer.
An end of an era
I really feel sad when some family business is closing because of such death or illness. Especially in Italian rural areas, I noticed that most restaurants and hotels are family business. I’m sorry for them and hope some one can help in this restaurant…
It would be great if a new family was able to take over the restaurant.
I hope so… So we can try in our next visit to there 🙂
I will miss Marko and his “Chicken Under a Brick”
I liked that too.
A great opportunity. It used to be busy every night, even in winter.Now that the Corona restaurant isn’t open it should do even better. We hope for a new owner soon.
Someone new could have a great business here. I remember well what it used to be like.
It will always be remembered for the ” Pollo al Mattone” 🙂
Marco deserves a rest , as he has not been in the best of health recently.
He has been unwell for several years. It is time to stay home and rest and leave his son to his new venture.
What a shame – it looked so attractive too – I do hope someone good comes along.
We hope there will be some new people soon.
I hope Marco is ok. The Pollo al Mattone was such a great dish.
Marco is OK, but he needs a rest.
What a shame. I was looking forward to sitting out on the riverside at Marco’s when I come in July. I hope to see him about in the town to say hello.
Marco is still living at Ponte, so no doubt you will see him occasionally.
What a great shame. We had some great meals and fun times in there. Marco was lovely and very friendly and always made a fuss of us on our regular visits. The chicken under a brick was legendary!
We always made sure we all either ordered main meals or pizza as nothing ever arrived at the same time, but the wine was cheap enough to compensate for any delays.
I wish Marco well and hope a new owner is found soon.
I hope someone takes over the restaurant too. It is a shame to see it empty.
I’m thinking that I ate there 3 years ago … but I’m not sure.
