La Dolda, the Italian pasta shop in Westlake, is closing, according to its email newsletter. Its last day of service will be on Saturday, December 16. Truffle products and olive oils are available at discounted prices leading up to its final day of service. Read on for the full note below.

“Unfortunately, the location didn’t help us,” owner Matteo Gallizio told Eater. “We thought we would cater to people’s need for pasta, but unfortunately it wasn’t the case.” He is planning on relocating the pasta shop to Boston, and its dried pasta will be available for online purchasing still.

The shop offered fresh handmade dried pasta, ranging from gnocchi; ravioli stuffed with cheese, mushrooms, or beef; to pappardelle. It also mixed up sauces as well: pesto, pomodoro, and ragu. Everything was available by the pound or cooked right on the spot for a dine-in meal. The shop also offered retail items like butter, salt, olive oil, and flour.

Owner Matteo Gallizio opened La Dolda earlier this spring because he wanted to be able to offer convenient but great Italian meals.
