Dear Valued Customers,
The purpose of this email is to notify you that Amici Miei Ristorante located at
6 North Washington Street Rockville Maryland, 20850 is permanently closed as of December 31, 2021.
We have provided high quality Italian cuisine for over 17 years, and we want to thank you for your support and for making Amici Miei Ristorante one of your favorites dining venues.
It was a very difficult decision to close the restaurant, due to the pandemic Amici Miei Ristorante had difficulty to financially sustain the loss despite your support.
The restaurant business has been my specialty and I was offered an opportunity to manage Trattoria da Lina located at 7000 Carroll Ave, Takoma Park, 20912.
While managing Trattoria da Lina, I am looking forward continuing seeing you again. Please stop by to say hello and Thank You for your loyal patronage over the years.
