BYE BYE BERTUCCI’S: ASHBURN ITALIAN RESTAURANT CLOSES

The Boston-based chain had been a longtime fixture on the Ashburn dining scene.

Bertucci’s, an Italian restaurant in the Ashburn Crossroads dining center, has closed for good. According to an email sent to customers, Monday was its last day in business. The Ashburn community has been waiting for this shoe to drop ever since The Burn first reported that a closure was imminent back in July.

In the email, Bertucci’s reps wrote: “We are sad to report that our Ashburn, VA location has closed permanently. After much effort to keep our doors open, yesterday was our last day of operation. We made this decision as a last resort. Please know that we are doing everything possible to relocate as many of our Ashburn staff members to other Bertucci’s locations.” The message goes on to point out that there are still Bertucci’s locations in Gainesville, Springfield and Washington, D.C.

Bertucci’s is a chain based in the Boston area, with more than 80 locations open in 10 states and the District of Columbia. The location in Ashburn had been there for nearly a decade. The building that housed Bertucci’s is now available for lease and the property reps hope to find a new restaurant to take its place.

    Sad to see them close, always enjoyed going there. Hopefully something can come in and be successful in that location.

    Too bad. It was my go-to place when most places were crowded on Friday nights. I always knew that fact that they weren’t crowded would lead to their demise but I hate to see them go- the food was good, at least consistent.
    There was one server whom I’d like to wish well (actually I wish all of them well) whose name is Edward, who always did a great job with his customers and I believe was promoted to a manager position the last few months. Edward, good luck to you and all the employees of Bertucci’s.

    Edward is an excellent server and you can find him in Sterling at Chuy’s!
