A reader reports:

“Pasta Italiano has been closed for the past few days. Maybe it is closed for good! This would be a good thing.”

Ed. Note: I put a call into the restaurant and the phone was disconnected though their website is still live. Pasta Italiana opened up in the former Little India space back in 2010.

    This would be a great thing. Hoping another restaurant opens soon. Still so disappointed about Nando’s.

  • Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!! Happy to see this place go.

    There’s a new place that just opened up a few doors up from this place– Macintyre’s. Went there for a happy hour last week and it was pretty great.

      Macintyre’s is great! I’ve only had sandwiches and drinks and apps there, but they were all amazing.

      LOVE MacIntyre’s – really good food, knwledgable staff, AND super dog friendly on the patio :)

      Macintyre’s is a step in the right direction for WP. Good beer selection – for Woodley Park. Let’s hope the trend continues. As for Nandos – come on, do you really need to give a multi national corporation that much money for a quarter chicken?

    I really hope this is the case. Sorry, but this place was awful and a waste of space.

      This article is a delight and I thank you for bringing it to my attention.

      I like in the article when he claims his food is not organic – yet he advertises it right on the awning!

      The guy’s attitude was so low key and the Yelp reviews so bad, I kind of assume this place was a front to launder money, or a sociology experiment. Is it possible for a place to really be this bad without it being somewhat intentional?

  • RAM Man

    No offense, I am sure the owner is a nice guy, but based on his comments in the article – how on earth is he able to raise 10s if not 100s of thousands of dollars in capital and credit to open a restaurant???? He just seems way out of his league.

    It’s crazy that this place always seems crowded when I walk by. Seems like a lot of people in this city (perhaps tourists, more often than not) will stuff their faces with anything that smells like food.
