Channel 2 writes today,

Cecelia’s Ristorante at 716 Elmwood Avenue closed after 18 years of serving diners. Besides its menu, Cecelia’s was noted for its large, outdoor patio facing Elmwood Avenue. Also closing on Sunday was Novel, formerly Amaretto Bistro, at 7170 Transit Road in Amherst.

Now the Amaretto Bistro opened in Amhearst 7 years ago and even expanded last year with a name change included, and more items on the menu.  But, the Bistro like Cecelia's just couldn't make it work.

Representatives from both restaurants declined to say why they decided to close.
