From a press release:
“Trattoria da Lina is a new Italian restaurant coming to Takoma Park in early 2017. The project will take over a former office space and add another option to Takoma Park’s growing dining scene.
Construction is well underway for this 55 seat restaurant in the heart of the Takoma Park commercial district. The restaurant’s design is rustic and cozy with brick and wood and inspired by the casual eateries of the owner’s motherland.The menu will offer a wide variety of pasta dishes, including traditional favorites and authentic creations, plus steak and fish options too. The restaurant will host a full bar.
The owner is Marcello Minna, area restaurateur with 20 years experience and partner in Magico, the group behind Takoma Park’s popular Dolci Gelati Cafe. Minna plans to staff the Trattoria with a team from Italy.”
