Abruptly and unexpectedly, our favorite restaurant Rostini closed. There was a note on the door thanking the customers for three wonderful years, but didn't offer an explanation. Some have speculated they may have left over leasing issues as rent is back on the upswing after the Great Recession. Davis Wiki simply states that it closed for "unknowable reasons."
Rostini was often packed and the food was consistently delicious. The prices ranged from 7-9 dollars per entré with sandwich/salad combination for lunch and regular specials. There was no health notice on the door, so that's ruled out. These "unknowable reasons" remain a mystery.
The pressing question facing us now can only be, "Where are we going to get Spaghetti and meatball now?" As far as I know there's only one Italian place left in Davis and I hear it's expensive. Davis awaits an answer.
