Back in April 2014, Savoia, the popular Italian eatery and wine bar at 277-279 Smith Street here in Carroll Gardens, closed its doors. Many in the neighborhood said that they would miss the restaurant's casual atmosphere, brick oven pizza, focaccia and great wine list.
So, when Savoia re-opened two months later, local residents seemed thrilled. However, after the re-opening, the restaurant downsized into the storefront at number 277 Smith Street and vacated # 279. The owner explained to a PMFA reader that the rent was too high to continue leasing both spaces.
The restaurant also seemed to have undergone a name change to 'Re Savoia'. At least that was the name taped on the windows.
Sadly, it appears as though Savoia may have closed again. There is been no sign of activity either for lunch or for dinner these past few days.
Does anyone have information? Is this finally it for this once popular eatery?
