It's clear the Piccolo restaurant group is experiencing hardships because their last-standing restaurant, Hostaria del Piccolo in Santa Monica, has temporarily closed its doors. The ambiguous "we will reopen soon" sign makes one wonder if this location's fate will end up like its former sister restaurants, Piccolo and the Hostaria in Venice.
With the website and social media disappearing from existence, it doesn't look promising. However, a former employee says this location plans on coming back by December. Sadly, the 6th and Broadway block in Santa Monica has had some bad luck with the shutter of the restaurant group's upscale Italian deli CiBoteca and the vegan spot Simply Raw earlier this year. Will Hostaria make a comeback? Any intel is welcomed in the comments or tipline.
