Chef Bryan Voltaggio and Hilda Staples this week announced plans to open a second location of Aggio, their modern Italian eatery, at One Loudoun in Ashburn on Aug. 10.
Aggio will replace Voltaggio’s Family Meal Ashburn, which will have its last day of service Aug.7.
“Having lived in the Family Meal One Loudoun space for over two years and getting to know the surrounding community well, our team felt that Aggio would better serve this area,” Voltaggio said in a statement. “We are excited to share our Italian food and wine with Ashburn and look forward to hosting our Family Meal fans in the final days of service as well as at our other locations.”
Aggio, which is open in Baltimore (a Washington, DC, location closed last year) features a menu of Italian classics that use sustainable, domestic ingredients such as oak-smoked pecorino cheese from Wisconsin, hams cured in the style of prosciutto di Parma from Surry County, VA, and specialty flours from South Carolina for handmade pastas. The One Loudoun Aggio will also sell fresh pastas, sauces and sommelier-selected Italian wines.
The Aggio team at One Loudoun includes Chef De Cuisine Justin Zawoysky, who has been working with the Voltaggio group since the opening of VOLT in 2008; General Manager Andy Powell, who was part of the opening team at One Loudoun; and Sommelier Chris Coker, who also oversees the wine list at Aggio Baltimore and recently received his advanced sommelier certification; and Corporate Beverage Director Dane Nakamura.
The restaurant is located at 20462 Exchange Street in Ashburn.
