Aventino and sister-restaurant AP Pizza Shop are scheduled to open on January 31, according to a report by Axios.

The restaurants are located at 4747 Bethesda Ave. in Downtown Bethesda and are being opened by MoCo resident Chef Mike Friedman (Olney), Colin McDonough, Gareth Croke, and Mike O’Malley, the team behind DC restaurants All-Purpose Pizzeria, The Red Hen, and Boundary Stone Public House.

Aventino will feature vibrant and traditional Roman cuisine with a menu of antipasti, pasta and more by chef Mike Friedman, and classic cocktails like a selection of spritzes and negronis, in a warm and inviting setting that can hold over 100 guests. Per Washingtonian, the menu will include “dishes like Jewish-­style fried artichokes, polenta-crusted fluke, and housemade gelato.”

AP Pizza Shop will be the Bethesda outpost of Friedman’s All-Purpose Pizzeria, which currently has two D.C. locations. AP Pizza Shop will offer “Jersey-style, deck-oven pies”, Italian coffee/pastries in the morning, and paninis, salads, and slicer for lunch, and a wider variety of pizzas available for dinner.
