Pasta Mia May Be Closing in Adams Morgan

January 10, 2014

Owner Roberto Broglia was cagey this afternoon when asked if Pasta Mia, his Adams Morgan institution, is closing after more than two decades of serving platter-sized bowls of penne, pappardelle and other pasta-based delights. Broglia said his landlord may be selling the building that has housed his iconic red sauce operation since 1991.

“If he sells it, that’s it,” Broglia said about his pasta house, famous for the long lines that regularly snake down Columbia Road, even in the chilliest of weather.

Yet in the very next breath, Broglia went on to say that longtime patrons already know the place is closing, sounding as if Pasta Mia had begun its final countdown. The owner said his lease expires on Feb. 28, which could mark Pasta Mia’s last day of service. Broglia said he would know more in a couple of weeks when he next talks with the landlord.
