KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) — Mamma DiSalvo’s has been part of the Miami Valley for more than 40 years, but like many small businesses, the restaurant has struggled amid the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
Roberto DiSalvo is the owner and chef of Mamma DiSalvo’s. He said his restaurant has been able to survive some of the worst surges of the pandemic, but he continues to face an uphill battle.
“Everything was fine until the end of the month. As the situation got worse, it started to affect different places and families,” DiSalvo said.
Due to the number of COVID-19 cases among its staff, it decided to close the dining room and only offer takeout.
“I have no choice but to do this for the safety of my customers and my employees to try to stop spreading it,” DiSalvo said.
DiSalvo hopes this closure is only temporary. He remains grateful to everyone in the community who continues to support his business during this difficult time.
“It’s a struggle, but we’re getting there. Day by day, we’re taking a step forward and moving through this,” DiSalvo said.
DiSalvo hopes to reopen the dining room next week. For an overview of the menu and takeaway information, click here.
