Patrizia’s of Bayside has stopped serving lunch and dinner and will only offer catering services.

A Bayside restaurant has stopped serving lunch and dinner and will only offer catering services after less than one year of being open, The Courier has learned.

Patrizia’s of Bayside took over its 201-10 Cross Island Parkway home in June, when popular but upscale Valentino’s on the Green shuttered.

According to a spokesperson for the Parks Department, which owns the site, the family-style Italian eatery is now only open for catered events.

“Their a la carte restaurant is not open at this time,” a spokesperson said. “We are currently discussing their operating schedule going forward.”

Patrizia’s is under a 17-year lease, officials said.

Former Valentino’s proprietor Giorgio Kolaj, who is back to running the facility, said Patrizia’s is “catering to a full house of parties for the month and needs all the space to accommodate the guests.”

Valentino’s closed its doors earlier this year when it could not keep up with the flailing economy, Kolaj told The Courier back in June. He and the Parks Department said they expected Patrizia’s moderately priced menu items to keep business afloat.

Brothers Gennaro and Giacomo Alaio, who took over operations when Patrizia’s opened, did not return calls for comment.
