"Dear valued friends, family, and customers, It is with the utmost sadness that we must inform you that Sunday December 20th will be our last day of being able to serve you. While we have fought hard to weather this storm that is affecting us all, unfortunately we are unable to go on.

"I’m so sorry to hear this! My husband and I were lucky to have our wedding rehearsal dinner. We have taken so many family and friends here. You guys have been the best! Never a bad meal or bad service!" Brandi-Nelson Moore wrote.
"This is heartbreaking. Mangia was my wife's choice for her last meal before she went in to be induced for our first child. That mushroom ravioli is her favorite meal ever. Gonna miss it," Elan McMillin wrote.
Multiple restaurants in the St. Louis area have had to close since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
