The past year has not been kind to very old restaurants, with the likes of Joe's of Westlake, Joe's Cable Car, Fleur de Lys, E'Angelo, Moishe's Pippic, Frankie's Bohemian Cafe, and more having closed up shop after 20 or more years of business. But this may be the oldest closure yet: just shy of hitting a whopping 60 years in business, the Sunset's Villa Romana is saying goodbye. As Inside Scoop reports, owner Antonio Accardo and his wife Giulia are in their 70s and want to retire, and their kids aren't interested in going into the restaurant business. This Sunday, July 20th, will be Villa Romana's last. The future of the space is still up in the air.
