Cannon’s has been a seafood market since 1937.

Il Canale, a ristorante and pizzeria, opened in 2010 under the ownership of Italian-born Joe Farruggio, who also has restaurants in Virginia.

The following sign was posted on Cannon’s front door in August:

“Cannon’s regrets to inform its customers that it is closing for the next few months as of Aug, 11 for medical reasons.”

The shop has been shuttered since that time.

There are no comments available from il Canale’s management team.
