Gnocchi is spicy sauce - mmmm!

Ceasar salad was good. Although there was a big chunk of the end of romaine on my plate. There was enough lettuce for me not to eat it. Had the gnocchi. It came with a meat sauce, but I asked for a spicy tomato mixed with alfredo. It was very good, but came out with mushrooms that were not listed... read more

I've been there for both dinner and lunch. The restaurant is done in tasteful decor and is equally as nice for lunch as dinner. I have had their butternut squash ravioli and have taken business guests who have enjoyed the food. Since I am Italian, my critiques are hard on good Italian restaurants so I give this a 4. The...

out of our party of 4--two ordered off the list of specials & 2 off the menu. the specials were much better than the menu items. chicken milanese & seafood pasta were good, just not very memorable. steamed mussels & goat stew were quite good though (off the specials).

We must have hit this one on an off night. They were out of several entrees and the staff seemed sometimes at odds with each other. Well located in Pentagon City, but I would say they have untapped potential. Large portions could be replaced with smaller but more quality offerings.

Great selection of Italian dishes, including some not often found like pumpkin ravioli - highly recommend! Servings were large. Was a nice dinner outside on a pleasant evening - great way to top off a day after playing tourist!

Good reliable Italian food at reasonable prices with decent service too. Try anything on the menu that is genuinely homemade, like their lamb sausage, or homemade ravioli, great flavors and large portions at reasonable prices.

My husband and I recently dined here with some friends who live in the area. This is one of their favorite restaurants, and we can certainly see why. Reasonably priced, nice atmosphere, good service and excellent food. We started with some calamari, which I must say was not my favorite. A bit on the chewy side for my liking, and... More

I have had grilled calamari in two cities in the last month -Pasadena and Raleigh -both were off the charts-this restaurant didn't do it justice -it was tough and had to be cut with a knife-I would suspect they precooked it and then tried to finish on the grill-the real deal is lightly cooked on the grill and is very...

I dined here on a cold January night with 3 family members. The dining room has nice large windows with a nice view of the courtyard ice skating rink. The staff were friendly and attentive, and even located a space heater nearer to us when we were slipping our coats over our shoulders. I would classify the food as comfort... More

To me, BREAD is the most important thing at an Italian restaurant! How about you? Well this restaurant had upscale WHITE bread, ugh! A 21st dinner party for my daughter, her pregnant sister and husband and myself. They didn't even comp a slice of cake for her birthday! I would have walked out if it had been any-other day after...
