Pasadena's Trattoria Neapolis Shuts Down the Wood-Fired Oven on February 1

The well-known Italian operation on South Lake Ave. posted a final notice on its website.

Trattoria Neapolis will be soaring no more. The seemingly popular Pasadena restaurant, known for its gorgeous interior, wood-fired pizzas and Cal-fresh vibe, is closing its doors on February 1, per their website and an email sent to customers.

No specific reason is listed for the two and a half year old restaurant's shutter; the going away note even offhandedly mentions the awards and accolades the place has received since opening its doors. There have been signs of trouble for a little while, though, as Trattoria Neapolis recently underwent a menu and chef overhaul, bringing in chef Clinton McCann and dropping much of the pasta in favor of a (perhaps more approachable) Italian steakhouse concept, a la Pistola.

Ultimately, the swap doesn't seem to have helped, with Trattoria Neapolis' last day scheduled for Sunday, February 1.

Any idea what's next for the wonderful South Lake Ave space? Hit the comments.
