Readers have written in to say they’ve learned that Pasta Bella at 1530 Queen Anne Avenue North will be closing at the end of October. Owner/chef David Rasti has confirmed it in an announcement on Facebook today. Rasti launched the restaurant in 1990 and since added a second location in Ballard — which will remain open.
Here is Rasti’s Facebook message to faithful diners:
Well, as you all know (hopefully) Pasta Bella on Queen Anne is closing due to the Gym, (Pro-Arobics) expanding! They will not renew our lease and need to be out as of October 31st! We tried to stay, we even pleaded to stay until the end of year but they want us out at the end of October! We will be moving to the ballard location, 15th and 59th ave !! Hope you come find us over there!
