A group of popular metro Atlanta Italian restaurants is closing one of its longtime locations this week.

The Kennesaw location at 425 Ernest Barrett Pkwy will close on Jan. 1 after 18 years, according to the restaurant's Facebook page. The statement said the shopping center that's home to the restaurant declined to renew the lease.

We made many great friends and created many happy memories over the past 18 plus years. It’s hard to leave a location that we have invested so much of our time, but the shopping center has determined that it did not want to renew our lease and has asked us to leave. We hope to find a new location in the near future. You can always visit us at 8496 Main St. in Woodstock at Ipp’s Pastaria. 

Thank you for making us a part of the Kennesaw community and loving Ippolito’s. 

Sincerely, the Ippolito Family

Toni and George Ippolito opened the first Ippolito’s in the late 1980s in Roswell and have since added locations in Alpharetta, Sandy Springs and Suwanee, as well as the Kennesaw and Woodstock restaurants and an Ipp’s in Roswell.

The menu offers a variety of pizzas, calzones, pastas, salads, baked dishes including ziti and lasagna and classics such as chicken parmigiana and veal piccata.

The AJC has reached out to the Ippolito’s corporate office for more information on the closure and details on future plans.
