BLOOMINGTON – Cafe Italia in Bloomington has decided to close its doors starting Wednesday afternoon.
Located at 511 Chancellor Drive, the restaurant posted a closing notice on its front door after lunch service.
The notice stated, “We regret to inform you that Cafe Italia has no other options than to cease operation. We want to thank all of our loyal customers for their appreciation of our food and keeping us going this long. We will greatly miss serving the great cities of Bloomington-Normal.”
In March, the restaurant’s owner Frank Composto faced delayed action from Bloomington’s liquor commission due to late payment of around $13,000 on food and beverage taxes.
The locally owned Italian establishment was open for seven years.
