It never feels like good news when a family restaurant closes their doors for the last time.  But this one seems like the owners are ready to move on.

What Is L'Isola Doro?

L'Isola Doro is a family owned and operated restaurant that has been serving the southtowns for the past 20 years.  They opened their doors in 1995 at 4690 Camp Road in Hamburg.

Their description on Yelp says that the owners Anna and Vincenzo came here from Palermo, Sicily in the 1970s and have been here ever since.  They began at restaurants in New York City and Poughkeepsie before moving here to Western New York in the early 90's.

They passed their love of cooking on to their sons Gaspare and Mario, and his step-son Rosario who have carried on the tradition in the kitchen.  Anna, her daughter Patricia and step daughter Patti have been running the dining room.

L'Isola Doro Is Closing

In a facebook announcement, they made it official.  L'Isola Doro will be closing their doors for the last time this weekend.

It read:

Hello friends and family, it’s sad to say that another great restaurant is closing, we have reached are retirement April 15 will be our last day. It’s been a great time enjoyed serving you through the years .We thank you for all the support you have given us. If you would like to say good buy for real this time it’s finally here .
Thank you Anna and Vince most of all our staff everyone will be missed.
We wish them and their family the best in their retirement.

What is next for 4690 Camp Road?

Now that L'Isola Doro is closing, what will be moving into the building?  The word around town is that is where the new location of Hat Trix bar will be going.  The building where they were originally is being demolished and a Taco Bell will be taking over their old location.
There is no word as to when Hat Trix will be opening up.
