Along with Town, Piacere has been one of the main anchors on Laurel Street for almost three decades. According to a story published today in the San Mateo Daily Journal, Piacere closed as of September 29th. The article states that owner Tony Gundogdu confirmed that he sold the restaurant and that new owners plan to soon open a steak place in that location.
Piacere was home to many great lunches and dinners for our family over many years, and Tony was always warm and welcoming, so we’ll miss them! But the restaurant has both a great space and a great location, so it is a prime opportunity for a new owner to make it’s mark on San Carlos.
