Italian restaurant Al Dente signs lease for second location

Italian restaurant Al Dente has signed a lease for a second location.

The restaurant, from founder Hakan Ilhan and chef Roberto Donna, has signed a lease for 5,500 square feet at 425 Eye St. NW, according to an announcement from Miller Walker Retail Real Estate, which brokered the deal.

An opening date for the latest Al Dente has not been announced.

Al Dente opened last March near American University. The restaurant was originally christened La Forchetta, but renamed itself in September due to confusion with another similarly named local restaurant.
