Altamore's Ristorante to close its doors after 40 years
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
One of Rockford's most famous Italian restaurants will be closing its doors on Sunday, Sept. 4
Alberto Altamore, the restaurant's owner, tells 13 WREX that he and his family are ready to move on to the next chapter in their lives. Altamore and his family have run this north side Rockford business for 40 years.
Altamore's is best known for its pizza and unique Italian dishes. It was also unique in that it was a carry-out only restaurant 6 days a week. Thursday was the only day patrons could eat at the restaurant itself.
Altamore says he is going to miss running the restaurant in the North End neighborhood that he was born and raised in, but thinks this area of Rockford is moving in the right direction.
The restaurant and building will be up for sale starting Monday, Sept. 5.
