Mamma Mia’s Italian Restaurant To Close At End Of April

College Avenue eatery Mamma Mia’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria will close its doors for good at the end of the month.

The restaurant’s owners have sold their business, and its last day of operation will be Friday, April 26, according to a release.

“We would like to thank the State College and Penn State community for being our friends and family for the past ten years,” the release read.

Mamma Mia’s opened its 128 East College Ave. location in 2009. The restaurant was originally founded in Calabria, Italy in 1917, according to its website.

Popular dishes from chef Massimo Napoli such as the chicken parmesan sub and penne alla vodka have turned it into a popular takeout and GrubHub destination.

Mamma Mia’s will reportedly relocate to Florida following the closure of its State College establishment.
