Just recently, I learned that local Italian restaurant Toscana in Mullica Hill has closed its doors. According to the note now posted at their former website, the closing is due to a disagreement with the landlord. Patrons are encouraged to visit A’Pizze in Swedesboro, their sister restaurant where many of the staff will now be found.
Personally I hadn’t been to Toscana in just about a year as my last few visits there had been extremely disappointing. I don’t feel that a landlord dispute was their only problem: the food was no longer up to the standards of the past, and as others have pointed out in Yelp reviews the decor was getting dated and in as much of a need of a refresh as their menu. And I suppose now that the restaurant is closed, I don’t feel bad about revealing that a post I made on May 19 of last year, about a disgustingly greasy and dust-covered pizza stand being used to serve my pizza at a South Jersey restaurant, was about Toscana.
I hope that these lackadaisical standards won’t be carrying over to A’Pizze.
