Paese Ristorante on King shuts down abruptly

Paese Ristorante on King St. has served its last meal. According to a tipster, staff at the modern-Italian restaurant were phoned on Sunday night over the Thanksgiving weekend and told that the restaurant was shutting down, effective immediately. A staffer later confirmed the closure when reached at the restaurant by phone.

The eatery, just east of Peter St., was part of King West's tourist-heavy "restaurant row", serving brunches, hearty Italian dishes, and cocktails to pre- and post-theatre crowds. If you're a local who wants to keep getting your fix of taleggio, sausage and fig pizzas, you'll have to head way north to Paese's second location at Bathurst and Wilson.
