What happened to the Buca di Beppo in Tampa?

I'm not a huge fan of the chain, but was a fun place to go with a large group and the found was pretty reliable. They seem to shut down the location on North Dale Mabry with little notice. Haven't seen anything in the papers.

  1. The company has been in dificult financial straits. Depending on how much you care, read their 10Q or see this recent financial report <http://biz.yahoo.com/bizj/070808/1503...>

    Not sure which three restaurants thecy closed but suspect Tampa was one.


    1. I had heard that the local franchise owner had a falling out with the company, closed the one on North Dale Mabry and that the other location by 275 will be changing soon also
