Vita Sociale gets the boot
It was less than two years ago that Centro, a fine-dining destination, rebranded itself as the pizza-and-pasta-focused Vita Sociale in a bid to lure casual diners. Evidently those wood-fired pies weren’t paying the bills, though, because the former Yonge and Eg hot spot has shut down for good. According to a distress warrant posted on the door, owner Armando Mano is behind on rent payments to the tune of $348,964.22 (the approximate cost of 20,527 of Vita’s Roman-style pizzas, tax not included). It’s unlikely that another iteration of Centro will take over the space. The restaurant’s voice messaging system has been disabled, and both its website and Facebook page have been taken down.
