Pines of Rome has been a Bethesda staple for over 50 years, serving its extremely popular white pizza, spaghetti & meatballs, and other traditional Italian dishes. The throwback Italian restaurant that still uses the classic red-checkered tablecloths has tabbed WashUrban to spearhead their first ever search for a second location, Danny Rubin (Co-founder, WashUrban) tells us. The restaurant is located at 4918 Cordell Ave. in Bethesda, where it moved in 2017. Pines of Rome was previously located at 4709 Hampden Lane, opening in 1972. They are currently targeting Potomac, Rockville, and Gaithersburg as possible location for the second restaurant.
Per the Pines of Rome: “At Pines of Rome, owner Chef Marco Troiano brings together a unique set of offerings coming from the small, peasant town in southern Italy where he grew up as well as from the many different Italian restaurants he worked in across Europe and the USA as a young man. The Pines of Rome has been an institution in Bethesda, Maryland for 5 decades.The key to our food quality is simple: we use FRESH ingredients every single time and make each dish to order. Nothing is prepared beforehand. Whether it’s Pasta, Pizza, Chicken, Veal, Vegetables, Seafood, you are sure to get fresh, home-cooked tasty food at a reasonable price. Since 1972, there has always been only one Pines of Rome.”
