Italian in Gaithersburg

It's been five years. We still haven't found decent carry out Italian in the area.

Biscotti was or go to for a while but it has gone downhill lately.

Il Porto on Muddy Branch was inedible.

I have not tried Buca di Peppo but I can't imagine it would be decent.

Mamma Lucias has not been a hit.

We just want a decent red-checked tablecloth style place within 15 minutes of Gaithersburg.

Does it exist?

Which Mamma Lucia's location did you go to? The one in Federal Plaza in Rockville is miles better than the other branches. It's the only red-sauce Italian in the area that I return to, but I can't imagine doing takeout. Nothing they serve there is going to improve after 10-15 minutes in the car.

Il Porto-- the carbonara was drenched in black pepper and had large chunks of undercooked onion in it.

We go to the Falls Grove Mama Lucia's--the Federal Plaza location is too far for carryout but could be an option for dinner on a school night if I were so inclined. The 4 year old would be sad that there is no Krispy Kreme next door.
