An Italian restaurant in Hermitage has announced on Thursday that it will be closing its doors after eight years of operation.

Toss'd Italian Bar & Grille announced the closure via Facebook stating that the closure was a "life decision." 

"With COVID and Jeff's illness, life has changed us. Our priorities are focused on our son and the blessings God has given us each and every day," the post read in part.

Despite, the closure, another restaurant is ready to take Toss'd's place. According to the post, The Valley Kitchen will soon be opening on the property with new breakfast and lunch options. 

Toss'd says The Valley Kitchen will be honoring gift cards purchased from Toss'd prior to the closure with verification of the paid amount.
