Pines of Rome to Open Second MoCo Location (Pines of Rome Express) After Over 50 Years in Business

Last year, we let you know that Pines of Rome, a Bethesda staple for over 50 years, tabbed WashUrban to spearhead their first ever search for a second location. Pines of Rome has found a home for its newest venture, Pines of Rome Express, according to the restaurant’s website. It will be located at 121B Congressional Lane– the former home of Congressional Deli, a representative from the restaurant confirmed. The new restaurant is located beside/behind Mykonos Grill and near Bed Bath& Beyond.

The original restaurant, which will remain open, is located at 4918 Cordell Ave. in Bethesda. Pines of Rome moved to the location in 2017 and was previously located at 4709 Hampden Lane, opening in 1972.  The restaurant is known for its extremely popular white pizza, spaghetti & meatballs, and other traditional Italian dishes.

Per 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.” Featured photo courtesy of Google Maps.
