It's been a rough week for restaurant closures, with one more to report: After more than 11 years of serving one of Portland's top Sicilian-style slices and traditional Italian pastries (cannolis, biscotti, pizzelle), N. Killingsworth Street's DiPrima Dolci has closed up shop. However, not all might be lost: The Oregonian reports owner Pat DiPrima is currently looking to relocate her neighborhood cafe into a "smaller, busier, and as charming" location elsewhere.
The Italian bakery/café debuted in summer 2002 and quickly developed a following for its sprawling outdoor patio. In 2011, the restaurant got major props from Slice for the "spectacular crust" on its Neapolitan-style slices. More information as it becomes available.
