Photos: Last supper at Pagliacci's

Pagliacci's has been dishing up classic Italian food -- and ambience -- since 1946. "It's been an awesome experience," says Mark Langston, whose mother bought the place from other relatives in 1977. "It's just time to move on."

A developer has bought the property, and plans to tear down Pagalicci's and replace it with apartments on the edge of Highland.

Photographer Eric Gruneisen brought back these photos from Pagliacci's on its final night.
