Vincent's Pizza Park in Forest Hills Now Closed

The move was abrupt and many readers were saddened to hear the news.

, a favorite, closed abruptly Thursday, according to several readers who contacted Patch with the news.

A Sherriff's sale sign apparently was posted on the restaurant's door Thursday. Calls made to the store were not answered and the voice mail is shut off.

According to KDKA, the business' part owner John Belissimo, said there has been some disagreement between the three owners and issue over failure to pay royalties of more than $40,000.

For a more in depth look at the legal problems, read this article in the Pittsburgh City Paper.

The last time I was there I ask for dine in after I ordered it to go and they said no we don't allow that. I think that's the kind of thing that did them in yea that's it.

I was raised in Forest Hills and Vinneys Pizza was a must! Every night of the week the parking lot was full and weekends forget it! The place was packed not including pick up orders! Of course the parking lot was small but just walk inside on a weekend night, the place was jumping! That was the place to go on the weekends for a pizza! Vinneys Pizza was the best! You either hated or loved it! An old friend from out of town remarked I never saw a pizza you needed a fork and knife to eat 1 slice!! There is no pizza in Pittsburgh like it! I will miss it! Please leave any suggestions on a good pizza here in Pittsburgh worth getting in the car and making a special trip to pick up!!!! I don't think sooooooooo!!!!
