Milford Selectmen to Impose Hours Rollback on Scioli's

Milford Selectmen on Monday ordered a six-month rollback on alcohol serving hours for Scioli's Pizza Bar, to take effect Friday.

The rollback on serving hours, to 11 p.m. daily, follows a court decision that affirmed the town's decision to curtail alcohol sales at the bar and restaurant. Selectmen voted to approve the hours rollback after a hearing in which police and customers described a fight in the parking lot that seriously injured two customers.

Scioli's is appealing a related decision by selectmen, which would suspend the alcohol license for three weeks.

On Monday, Selectmen voted 2-0 to have the alcohol pouring rollback take effect beginning Friday, Feb. 15 and ending Aug. 15.

Selectman Dino DeBartolomeis said, of the court decision: "We were justified in doing what we did."

Selectman William Buckley recused himself from the discussion and vote, because one of the people involved in the incident is known to him.
