Saw a sign in the window of Tentazioni in Shad Thames this evening announcing that they have closed permanently! Such a shame, loved that place. Does anyone know why?

Maybe they moved out before the stench of the nearby super-sewer arrives...

Great spot, but never seemed particularly busy. Shad Thames is a strange place - all those affluent residents, but still unable to keep places like this, or even their restaurant, busy. Lets hope the restaurant doesn't follow.

I believe that the change of ownership of the freehold of the Circle complex meant that rents for the retail units went up. Apparently, this squeezed them out. It's a real shame - lovely little business.

Oh no! l loved Tentazioni! Used to go there for lunch when I still worked in Shad Thames.

FWD- Thanks for the response, interesting to know.

If they didn't go now I'm sure they would have got driven out of business the minute Tesco turns up a few doors down (assuming that they get the planning permission).

Loved Tentazione too, nice for coffee, lunch or take away from the deli. Welcoming friendly staff. What a shame it is closing.

It was great for dinner in the evening if Mrs Greek was out and I had to fend for myself.

Wonder if they can open a deli in or around their restaurant premises, which are sadly also often mostly empty.

I have always understood that it was a very nice restaurant indeed, but I did find it looked quite expensive. Eating out has become quite competitive and, although nowhere 'cheap', certainly more affordable than the prices on the menu of Tentazioni. This may be one of the reasons they are out of business.
