New pizza and pasta joint Due Amici opening in College Park

Just what College Park needs: another Italian restaurant.

You can't swing a dead gatto without hitting one — Adriatico, Armando's, Ragazzi's, Tornatore's and Trevi Pasta all vie for the neighborhood's seemingly staid palates and, soon, they'll have one more restaurant to feast on.

Due Amici will move into the corner space that housed Kingfish Bistro, which owner Kim Nguyen then changed to Kingfish Grill, which then became the Princeton Grill just a few weeks ago.

No confirmation as to whether Due Amici is of any relation to the now-shuttered pizza joint of the same name that once stood downtown in the Dapper Duck space, or the one that served the fine folks of Oviedo until early 2017.

We'll be sure to let you know.
