A sign down at the beloved Devon Italian restaurant and pizzeria reads:
After 10 wonder years in this community, Danny and Christina have decided to sell Al dente. Thank you for all of your patronage through the years. Al dente will be opening soon under new ownership.
Bob Gregory, Community & Economic Development Director for the City of Milford, said the following:
Obviously, we're very saddened to hear about the closing. Christina was a member of the Devon Revitalization Committee for a good number of years and contributed and her partner Dan is involved in a new venture at the Flagship Marina, but Al dente's was a very positive happening for the Village of Devon and I hope to see it under new ownership and in a new shape or form, come back to life.
118th District State Representative Kim Rose spoke of the closing, saying, "It's always unfortunate."
Rose commented on the plans to re-open the restaurant under new ownership, saying that she was "looking forward to the next new adventure."
