MESSAGE FROM IL CANALE’S FOUNDER JOE FARRUGGIO REGARDING COVID-19
As of 4/29/2020, Il Canale has Reopened for curbside carryout/Delivery
Dear Friends and Members of the Media,
I would like to update you on the steps we are taking to keep IL CANALE safe for you and your loved ones.
IL CANALE considers the health and safety of our guests and staff a top priority. Me and my team are working proactively during this trying time as concern grows regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all at our family restaurant.
The safety of IL CANALE’s loyal customers and your loved ones continues to be of primary importance to me and my excellent, hardworking staff. Out of an abundance of caution, I have decided to close, temporarily, IL CANALE.
This decision, I did not take lightly, but what it means to be an Italian is to take care of and protect the family. You are IL CANALE’s family and to assure everyone’s wellbeing and safety is at the core of the Italian soul. We are leading by example and I would encourage other restaurants to do the same.
Me and my team are monitoring developments from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health agencies for the latest developments related to COVID-19 and we will make adjustments and communicate, promptly, regarding any operational changes.
We will continue to keep you updated through email, our social media accounts, and the website www.ilcanale.com. We highly recommend our customers to check our website for updates regularly and follow the health advice of relevant authorities.
Our hearts go out to the people and families who have been affected by this unprecedented event. Our thoughts are with you as we all work to navigate this challenging time.
CEO of Il Canale
