Tina's, Hamburg's own Little Italy, sets closing date

The owners of Tina’s Italian Kitchen will close their restaurant in December, ending 34 years of service to the Village of Hamburg.

Tom and Christine DeNisco are retiring. Before they do, they’re inviting customers back to 22 Main St. for another plate of pasta broccoli, chicken Christina or pasta fasoola, they announced.

The Italian-American eatery opened in 1981 with 40 seats. It expanded to 100, then added 10 tables in 1989 when the DeNiscos bought the historic building. (The Hamburg Grange Building, built in 1892, also contains apartments and the Chrysalis Theatre on the third floor.)

After the Village of Hamburg reconstructed Main Street and added roundabouts, the DeNiscos built a patio next to the restaurant, dubbing it "Little Italy."

The DeNiscos plans to close the doors on Dec. 15. “To show appreciation to our loyal customers, we will be offering some specials,” the statement said. “We hope to see some familiar and new faces! Stop by and say goodbye.”
