La Botega, a Bell Boulevard eatery that serves panini and pasta, is closed and the site's landlord has put up a "space available" sign.
The restaurant, located at 42-29 Bell Blvd., has a notice from the marshal's office on its window from Dec. 3.
The note reads, "The landlord has legal possession of these premises pursuant to a warrant of the civil court."
Lyle Sclair, executive director of the Bayside Village Business Improvement District, said he did not know why the business had closed, but did not expect it to reopen.
Sabre Real Estate has a sign in the eatery's window advertising available space at the site.
