Capozzi's Restaurant Changing Owners

The North Decatur Italian eatery will be under a new name by this summer.

Capozzi's in North Decatur will be under new owners soon.

The sale of the popular Italian eatery is expected to go through by next week, and the restaurant could have a new name by as early as this summer, according to Tomorrow's News Today.

From the blog:

The neighborhood Italian eatery has become one of the longest running eateries in the center.  An email was sent to patrons this week announcing upcoming changes to the restaurant.  The email invited  guests to come in this past weekend and next to say goodbye to current owners and to meet new owner "Tori."

Reportedly, the sale of the restaurant is due to close by the 15th (tax day coincidence?) Additionally, the restaurant will remain Capozzi's until later this year, perhaps June or July, when the owners plan to introduce a new name for the restaurant.

To the new owners: I suggest that you have better food and temperature control. I took out-of-town guests there last summer. The food was not good at all--bread was less than mediocre and main dishes less tasty than one could buy frozen in grocery stores. To top it off, it was unbearably hot in the restaurant. My party of seven asked repeatedly to have the air conditioning turned on. Finally we were told it was on and that was the best it could do. It felt like 90 degrees. Needless to say, I did not return to Capozzi's. I do love Italian food but will not go back to a restaurant a second time when these many things go wrong. However, with new ownership and a little advertising of the menu--AND A REPAIR OF THE HVAC SYSTEM--I could give Capozzi's another shot.

I dunno, the penne bolognese is pretty spectacular, I think.

I've only been once and was not particularly impressed. Hopefully the new owners will have the interest and know-how to make their restaurant better than an Olive Garden.
