Pulcinella Ristorante is reincarnated as a 7-Eleven
In a couple of months, taquitos, Slurpees and beef jerky will be sold where sophisticated sauces and pasta presentations once ruled.
The original Pulcinella Ristorante, which opened in Fort Collins in 1991, has gone dark, although the Pulcinella Pizzeria is still serving that town; a second restaurant in Lafayette has also closed, although there's a pizza joint there, too.
"After serving fine-dining experiences since 1991, Pulcinella Ristorante is taking a break," says chef/owner Antonio Race, "but will be back some time in the future. We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all our loyal customers who have supported us over these last eighteen years."
