A new Italian restaurant called Pizzeria Mia opened yesterday in the Central West End at 4501 Maryland Avenue. It appears to be associated with Bevo Mill coffee shop Caffe Milano, which means it's been in the works since at least July 2011. We reported back then that the city's board of adjustment was considering allowing a restaurant with a full bar and patio in the space.

The applicant who was appealing to the board was Caffe Milano owner Darmin Beganovic. However, the business license is registered to Gordana Beganovic. Pizzeria Mia doesn't seem to have a phone number or website, but it's open until 11 p.m.
