“We will cherish our memories made in Little Italy and look forward to making future ones with you in Big Italy!” the release reads.

No one answered the phone at the restaurant at about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The restaurant’s owner, Mary Ann Cricchio, listed the property for sale for $1.75 million in December 2018. She said at the time that she spends her time organizing tours in Italy and spends her summers there.

Named after original owner Domenico “Mimmo” Cricchio, Mary’s husband who died in 2003, the building was built in 1920 and the restaurant opened in 1984.

The eatery has served a number of notable celebrities since its opening, including David Bowie, Faye Dunaway, Tony Bennett and George Foreman.

Maryland property records do not show whether the property has been sold.
