WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts is losing a landmark restaurant, after more than 80 years in business.

The Monte Carlo in West Springfield, will close its doors, at the end of June.

Third generation owner, Frederick Pugliano told 22News, “He and his wife decided, it was time to consider their lives, outside of the restaurant.”

The Monte Carlo was founded by Pugliano’s grandparents, 83 years ago.

The restaurant will continue to serve lunch and dinner, through the end of June.

Pugliano said that the family’s decision to close was difficult, but it has been a pleasure to serve the people of the greater Springfield area since 1934.
