Help Osteria Papavero & its staff thru 2020 winter

Dear friends,

It’s been quite a bumpy ride since we closed our doors for indoor dining on March 16. Who would have thought we would still be unable to resume indoor dining almost 8 months later? While we were able to re-open the patio over the summer, because of rising cases and capacity rules we likely will not be able to resume indoor dining until the spring. 

Although we did receive a PPP loan back in May, that money was only supposed to last until July. We hope the government will come through with some kind of help again, we’ve been struggling since then. We are so grateful for your support so far in ordering gift certificates, curbside and delivery, but unfortunately those sales are not enough to keep us afloat through the winter. A donation from you can help keep our team employed while we serve you curbside. Even a small amount will add up to keep everyone on staff.

We can’t wait to be able to have you back to the restaurant, but we need to stay open until that day. Please help.
