Amalfi Ristorante Italiano Announces Plans to Sell Building, Name, and Recipes After 45 Years in Montgomery County

Longtime MoCo restaurant Amalfi Ristorante Italiano has announced plans to relocate out of Montgomery County later this year. In a social media post from Sunday morning, the restaurant announced plans that it will be putting up the Amalfi building, restaurant name, and recipes for sale.
The restaurant states that this will be a long process that will take months after signing a deal with a prospective buyer, so closing isn’t imminent, but is likely to take place later this year. Below you can see the full statement, per the Amalfi Ristorante Facebook page.
“The time has come for us to officially announce that after 45 years we will be looking to relocate out of Montgomery County later this year. In the next couple of months, we will be putting up Amalfi for sale and we will be getting ready for the next phase in our lives. We will be selling both the building and for the right price even the Amalfi name, including all of our recipes.
We would like to thank all of our wonderful regulars a million times over for all of your years of patronage. We will miss you all and will never forget you. It is our wish to leave an Amalfi here for you but it will all depend on the best offer we get. We do promise to maintain our quality and excellence up until that very last shift. In honor of our father and all of you, our wonderful faithful regulars, we will do our very best till the very end.
This is a long process and once we sign on the dotted line then it will probably be a couple months till our last day of business. We will consistently keep you all updated as we move further along in the process. I know many of you will want to make sure you get to come back before we leave but remember Fridays and Saturdays are already usually fully booked before this announcement. After word gets out, I imagine they will be even crazier and it will be even harder to get a table. So please don’t forget to give Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays some love as well.
Thank you all again for your support and kindness over the past four decades. We wish you all the very best and may God bless each and every one of you. It was our honor and pleasure to serve you.”
