UPDATE

As previously reported – or at least speculated on – Stamford’s Sabatiello’s Italian Grille, did close last week, not long after the Fox network aired an episode of Kitchen Nightmares featuring the restaurant and its problems.

According to owner Sabatiello “Sammy” Settembre, he and his brother will open a pizzeria in Greenwich, where he previously operated a pizzeria for eight years before opening Sabatiello’s in Stamford.

The new business – also called Sabatiello’s – is reportedly opening tomorrow, Thursday, Dec. 11, and will neighbor the Yangtze Riverside restaurant‎ on East Putnam Ave in Riverside.
