The pandemic shut down Del Ray Italian restaurant Rosemarino D’Italia, but it didn’t stay down.

Alexandria Living Magazine reported that the restaurant at 1905 Mt. Vernon Avenue reopened last Friday.

The restaurant features cuisine from northern and southern Italy, from antipasti to zuppe.

The restaurant also has a Dupont Circle location, but the original Alexandria one shut down in 2021 after struggling to keep afloat during the pandemic. The Alexandria location had been open since 2013.
