Tomasso's Trattoria, an Italian eatery located in a small Eastern Ave. strip mall, is closing at the end of March.
The building has been sold and, according to owner Tomasso Conti, rent increases are forcing him to shut down his business.
The restaurant is often referred to as an underrated gem in the east end, known as much Conti's large personality as its plates.
Tomasso's is frequented by film crews of the nearby studios and popular for its pizza and Italian hot table lunch menu.
