The restaurant is part of the Hi-Nella Shopping Center on Warwick Road. Police said the building inspector will have to determine the extent of structural damage.
Although employees and the owner Robert Croce were inside, no one was injured according to police. "Everybody thought I was hurt because I was in the dining room," Robert Croce, the owner of the shop told NBC 10. "Usually I come back to the register so they were looking for me.
