Owners of Chef Tony’s Have Bought Amalfi; Hope to Reopen Soon

by MCS Staff

Longtime MoCo restaurant Amalfi Ristorante Italiano at 12307 Wilkins Ave in Rockville announced in October that it has been sold. Amalfi originally announced plans to sell and possibly relocate outside of Montgomery County back in April. The owners of Chef Tony’s Restaurant in Bethesda have announced that they have bought the restaurant and hop to reopen in December. The restaurant has a hearing for a liquor license on December 15. Full statement from Chef Tony’s below:

“So it’s now official, my wife Sonia, and myself have purchased Amalfi Restaurant and Rockville. We are so excited to get started with this new project, and will explain everything in our email going out today… We will be blending the Chef Tonys brand with the wonderful accolades of Amalfi Restaurant, which is been around 45 years in the Rockville market. We are so excited to get started and will let you know when transitions will happen.

To be clear, we are not leaving the promenade, but are adjusting the concept a bit… We can I think all the amazing clients that I’ve gotten us here over the years. And we’re so excited to blend Chef Tonys family with the amalfi family in more ways than one

We hope to reopen in December, in time for the holiday events, and serve you all with pride and honor. Thank you again for all your support… See you soon, and here’s to a grand adventure!”

Yeah the owner’s of Amalfi’s screwed over the employees. We know one of the chef’s they offered them no thanks or any gifts for the 20 and 30 years of service. Really awful how they left.

Amalfi’s was/is one of my all time favorite restaurants around, first ate there in 1977❤️, I was introduced to Chef Tony’s at the beginning of the year and have made it my Tuesday night place, working my way through the whole menu! Everything is spectacular! I couldn’t be happier with the choice to carry on the Amalfi tradition & provide our favorite Amalfi dishes! Wishing both parties the Best for the future!❤️ Thank you Moe Jr. & John for many great meals!
And Tony & Sonia you won a new customer for life with your spectacular food & service❤️
