the oldest restaurant in rome is up for sale.james"jimmy"colangelo was born upstairs from the restaurant his parents owned on 229 e. dominick street .he passed away last year @ 84 years old.the restaurant was established in 1907.it was one of romes favorite places to eat,drink,and enjoy a good,friendly, italian style evening.the business survived the prohibition,"jimmy" in world war 2,and a fire in the 70s.i think its just a shame to loose the heritage and quality of a business like that one "jimmy" worked his whole life to improve for his customers.i was the chef there for 8 years,and never had a better boss, or job.i miss "the plaza"restaraunt,and will never forget what it was all about. like the "boss"sometimes said"lets face it ,those days are over".i miss him ,and the proudness of being a part of it all.i guess all good.....or i should say"great" things must come to an end.
