I remember when we first met. We use to eat at your restaurant on Port St Lucie Blvd every Friday night with our grand daughter Brianna who is 27 with 1 boy and another boy on the way. Jimmy was with us then. After you closed we use to go out for dinner, (again) lol those were great times especially our children were all friends. Many memories we had , you will be missed tremendously. Love you Rita and I will miss our little chats. We didn't see much of each in recent years but we still have memories ❤️

We are so saddened to hear of Rita’s passing. We went to the restaurant tonight & saw the note on the door, never ever thinking it could be Rita.
Rita was always so funny & nice to us when we’d come to the restaurant. Our favorite place! She will be missed.
To the entire family, Mike, Miranda, Philip, & the rest of the family, we send our deepest sympathy.

To the Panariello Family,
I am so sorry for your lose. I always enjoyed coming into the restaurant to place the wine order and getting to talking with Rita. Her and I would share "family drama stories". She is a great story teller. To Mr. P, I know not one word I say would help console you but know this Rita and you created any amazing family together and they will carry you through.
