AKRON - On Thursday, managers at the popular Luigi's restaurant In Akron confirmed they are not closing.
The opening sentence which includes "calm down" was apropos, considering the widespread hysteria that ensued.
The restaurant is described as a "Long-running, family-friendly fixture for Italian fare, including pasta, pizza & homemade sausage."
Travis Stubbins, the floor manager says there were a lot of concerned regulars and a number of phone calls about it. "I promise we are not closing," Stubbins said.
This isn't the first time a pervasive rumor has happened surrounding the dining hot spot. "We did have a rumor last year that there was gonna be a Luigi's on the Lake in Portage Lakes," Stubbins explained. "It's still going on... a guy asked me about it."
