A popular Halfmoon Italian restaurant is closing after 10 years in business.

We always hate to see a local business shut down. Especially when it is one that is beloved and popular in the community it serves.

When we first learned that Nonna Maria's Italian Kitchen in Halfmoon was up for sale last year, everyone hoped the restaurant would continue under new owners. It has always been a local favorite in the Halfmoon and Clifton Park areas, known as one of the best area spots for delicious Italian food. While a restaurant will still occupy the space, Nonna Maria's will be closing for good after a 10-year run.
