Aegean Pizza in SunVet Mall is Closing
A message appeared on the Facebook page of Aegean Pizza & Italian Restaurant on Monday night announcing that the long-standing and believed pizzeria was closing its doors after nearly 50 years.
The pizza place is located inside the almost empty SunVet Mall in Holbrook, and has been around since the early 1970s. Unlike most mall pizza places this is an authentic Long Island slice and not a chain. The pizzeria was even the subject of a YouTube video food review.
The message said that the pizzeria will be closing as of August 6.
“We live in extraordinary times, which have made it impossible for us to keep Aegean’s doors open, and keep providing the same high quality of serving that you became familiar with over the last five decades,” the message read.
The note said that the original owner of the pizza place has retired to Greece.
