Chow ciao?


Local aficionados of Roman-style fresh pasta, pizza and pannini are puzzling over the fate of Campo de Fiori's three restaurants, including one in Weston.

In the Boston Area section of the Chowhound blog, Campo devotees report that a sign on the door in Weston says it's closed due to equipment failure - and that a similar sign has been posted at the Commonwealth Avenue location near Boston University.

The Harvard Square location in Cambridge, posters on the blog say, seems permanently closed.

Our own reporting has determined that the Weston shop hasn't been open since mid-July. No one answered the phone in either Weston or Cambridge when a reporter called Tuesday at lunchtime, and the voicemail at the Boston location was full.

More information to follow when it becomes available ...
