We kind of gave them shit from the get, given the unimaginative name and the prospect of mediocre Italian food that no one in Hayes Valley was going to want. And now, a year after opening, Ristorante Allegro (409 Gough Street) is closed, the Scoop reports. (You may recall that the restaurant venture came from the Zira Brothers, who run a possibly shady valet service in North Beach.) We’ve been guessing for months that this was the “recently remodeled” Hayes Valley restaurant up for sale, and now the place has officially gone dark and disconnected the phone. [Scoop]
Might as well have been called Crapitto’s.
