A local Italian restaurant has opened in the space formerly occupied by JB's Burger Kitchen.

Villa Amore opened this past weekend at 5353 N. 27th St., next door to a Country Inn & Suites hotel.

JB's Burger Kitchen closed earlier this year after less than two years in business, and the space was empty for several months.

Villa Amore is an Italian restaurant that also includes a wine bar, owner Florim Ramadani said.
