Landmark Pennsylvania Restaurant to Reopen in 6 to 9 Months

December 5, 2013

The owners of a landmark central Pennsylvania restaurant badly damaged in a fire last month say the business will take six to nine months to rebuild.

Rosemary Lumadue tells WHTM-TV that the Nov. 10 fire at Visaggio’s “has almost done me in.”

The restaurant in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County, opened in a former barn about 33 years ago. The barn’s foundation survived the fire and will be the foundation of the new restaurant, which has earned national acclaim for its Italian cuisine.

The fire broke out in the kitchen area of the restaurant after it closed on a Sunday evening. A banquet hall area was damaged by smoke and water, but not destroyed. The barn housing the restaurant was badly damaged, its kitchen destroyed and an attached hotel was also damaged.
