Amalfi Ristorante Italiano announced via its Facebook page it will be shutting its doors after 45 years in Rockville.
Founded in 1977 by husband and wife Moe Sr. and Teresa, along with friend Renata, Amalfi served locally farmed and sourced dairy and meat, and made pasta by hand. The family transitioned ownership to Moe Jr. in 2012.
The family said they are looking to relocate out of Montgomery County later in 2022, and will be putting Amalfi up for sale in the following months. “We will be selling both the building and for the right price even the Amalfi name, including all of our recipes,” reads the Facebook post.
Amalfi promises to maintain quality in service leading up to its closing. “It is our wish to leave an Amalfi here for you, but it will all depend on the best offer we get,” the family wrote.
The restaurant reassured it will be a long process and still a matter of months before the final days of business. Patrons eager to get their last taste of the family’s original recipes will have plenty of time to make reservations.
