NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - After 70 years, a local Italian eatery is closing its doors. The owner of Veneziano says he's hanging up his spatula on Sunday.
The restaurant has served generations of pizza and pasta lovers in Norfolk. It's the oldest Italian eatery in the area. The Granby Street business has been in his family for three generations.
The owner decided to close because of medical reasons and the economy. Sunday is the last day.
Charlie's Café, currently in Ghent, will take over the space, and keep much of the old Italian decor.
