Despite its three-and-a-half star rating on Yelp, Sava! Italiano was not a success. The Amarillo, TX-based Italian restaurant recently shut down, according to a closure notice outside the building, which reads in full:
"You sorry assed, rednecked sacks of goat sperm had no idea what you had here! Good luck with your pre-packaged frozen shit food in this town. Maybe you’ll remember us when you’re boning your sister and think she smells like pasta. We are off to make money in a town whose average IQ is above room temperature! CIAO!!!"
Now, as much as I want to believe that everything about this is true, the restaurant’s chef/owner, Mark Coffman, emailed Grub Street about the “nasty joke,” writing, “Yes it was a JOKE… Nobody ever saw it up and it is not up now. It appears somebody put it up, took a pic, and then took it down. We’ve got a cook that’s filed unemployment and we’re fighting it. That’s about all I can figure out at this point.” Sava!’s Facebook page also warns people to, “[Not] believe all you hear and see folks!” Then again, this message is also on their Wall:
“And I thought opening this last restaurant was a chore……….Holy Jesus Jesus McJesusness Jesusinium. It’s supposed to get easier!”
