After nearly a century under the guidance of one bloodline, Stango's Restaurant will be changing hands. The Italian eatery, owned and operated by the same family since 1919, will serve its last meal on Sunday before the new owners take over.
The announcement was made Wednesday morning on the restaurant's Facebook page:
"The Stango/Cocchiola family has kept Stango's Restaurant operating on the same corner in Glen Cove for about ninety-four years. We've finally decided that it's time to step away. Our last night at the Restaurant will be this coming Sunday, November 25. New owners will be opening at the same spot some time soon, possibly this Spring. There were a lot of marriage proposals in that restaurant, even a few breakups, there were rehearsal dinners, veterans returning from too many wars broke bread with their families at Stango's, there are countless stories and memories. There are more to come. Thank you for ninety-four great years, it's been an honor and we wouldn't have spent them any other way. We'll miss you all."
The restaurant's owners were not immediately available for comment. Stay tuned for more on this development.
