Neighbors have wondered about the fate of Angelo’s over the weekend, and the owners announced on Facebook yesterday that the popular neighborhood Italian spot has indeed closed.

Friends, it is with great sadness that we inform you that, after 21 years, we’ve closed our doors for good. We’ve had many ups and downs in those two decades, and while the past few years were a struggle, the good times have by far outweighed the bad. We’ve employed all walks of life, watched babies grow up and go to college, seen engagements turn into marriages and families, supported East Dallas schools and charities, and have been honored to serve tens of thousands of people. What made all the hard times worthwhile was all the amazing customers we’ve become friends with along the way. You guys made it fun to come to work every day so we’d like to say thank you so much for supporting us for so many years. It’s a sad day for our family, but the silver lining will be whatever new adventure awaits us. We hope to see you around East Dallas, which will always be home to us, and maybe one day we’ll be able to serve you again
