‘Unable to survive,’ Westcott House closes Coventry pizza shop

West Bay

COVENTRY, R.I. (WPRI) — The family operating a Coventry restaurant that specialized in pizza and pasta said they were forced to close because they “were unable to survive” as a business.

Westcott House Family Restaurant on Nooseneck Hill Road in Coventry stood closed Monday morning. A tip from an Eyewitness News viewer said the business closed suddenly.

Dave Azverde, the restaurant owner, said in a statement Monday that, “This is a challenging time for our family and the community.”

“We expanded into Coventry five years ago but regrettably, were unable to survive,” he said.

While the Coventry location is closed, The Westcott House location on Rt. 33 in West Warwick is still open, Azverde said, “and we hope to continue serving you there.”
