Campo de'Fiori Bistro Market of Bray, Co. Wicklow, has closed following the decision of its owners, Laura Chiavini and Marco Roccasalvo, to return home to Sardinia.
"A Bittersweet Feeling"
Talking to Food & Wine Ireland, Chiavini said, "It’s a bittersweet feeling to close our doors. We’ve been here for 18 years now and we’ve been thinking of going home for a while, so we thought now was the right time. We're sorry to leave the restaurant, as [it has been operating] for 15 years, but we had to decide to do it.
"Campo de'Fiori was well established and we always had a great reaction from people. We know our customers are very sad to see us leave. We’ve had people coming into the restaurant since we first opened, which is a rare thing. Many became part of our family, so we’re sad about leaving them, but we’re excited about the future."
