Don Renner sent us these photos of the signage coming down at Il Fornaio restaurant’s Reston Town Center location on Saturday morning.
After 10 years in business here, the restaurant closed after a final celebration Friday evening. Here’s what Renner said about it:
This restaurant was kind of like our neighborhood “Cheers” place to meet and was ingrained in the RTC fabric. Sad to see this establishment move on … there had to be hundreds of people stopping by starting Friday at 5 PM for a final taste and a final toast.
Do you have any memories or photos of Il Fornaio you’d like to share? Drop them in the comments below.
