We’ve featured them on the cover of INDY Week. We’ve lauded them as having some of the best pizza in the Triangle—David Ross called Bella Mia “a tireless exemplar of rigor and integrity”—the Mercedes Benz of pizzas.

The News & Observer is reporting that Dec. 22 is the last day the current owners will operate the Cary eatery.

New owners are being trained but it is uncertain when Bella Mia will reopen.
