Rosso Trattoria, the long-running Italian restaurant in Forest Acres' Trenholm Plaza, closed abruptly on Feb. 19. 

The announcement came by way of a Facebook post from general manager Richard Couture, and expresses sadness over the closing of the restaurant. It goes on to say that they are looking for a new location. They advise that any gift cards should be held onto for future use.

The restaurant's outgoing voicemail also advises callers, "Please look in the Free Times in the upcoming weeks for a new location." However, Free Times has been unable to reach Rosso or Couture.

Chef-entrepreneur Kristian Niemi opened Rosso in 2009, later selling it to pursue other ventures.
