A popular Italian eatery in Rockton suddenly closed this week.

There was no reason given for the closure by Scorchy Cafe Italiano, 202 West Main Street, outlined on Facebook.

Just yesterday, Scorchy on Facebook shared details with their customers regarding unused gift cards.

The Scorchy closure of the restaurant referred to as "cozy" by diners featuring an "excellent" eggplant parmesan has been met with sadness and disappointment by fans commenting on Facebook.

Scorchy Cafe Italiano, inside the former Local Dough Cafe, was open for less than two years.
