Dino's of Solon is closing after 16 months.
The restaurant, which moved into a building on SOM Center Road, will have its last day on Oct. 20. The restaurant will remain open for dinner this week.
In an email to business and city leaders, Dino's co-owner John Tibaldi explained why the decision was made to close:
Due to deteriorating sales and high expenses, my partners and I have made the difficult decision to close down Dino’s of Solon. Despite our efforts, we were unable to make this side project – which we all felt very passionate about – work. We gave it a shot but fell short – no regrets. (well perhaps a few)
My partners and I greatly appreciate your patronage over the 16 months of operation as well as the kind words you spoke about our restaurant.
Dino's is the latest in a string of unsuccessful restaurant ventures at 6372 SOM Center Road.
