Austin360 -- The changes happening all around downtown Austin have made their way to the front door of a longtime downtown pizzeria. Frank and Angie’s owners Mike and Kim Hutchinson released a statement this week on their website announcing that the red-sauce Italian restaurant that has been in business for almost 25 years will close November 17.

The Italian restaurant known for its pizza and pasta dishes opened in 1995 long before many Austinites knew the difference between New York, Sicilian and Neapolitan pizza. The Hutchinsons write that the closure is due to a combination of factors, including taxes and affordability but also it just felt like the right time for the couple that has run the business for most of their lives.
