The group I saw The Capitol Steps with chose Aria because it was in the same building as the theater. It was my first visit, but I applaud the choice. A group of twenty can be a challenge, but the service was smooth and attentive. We had no problem getting to the theater on time.
The food was excellent. Those who chose personal size pizza were very complimentary. Salad and sandwiches were also excellent. Aria has a full dinner menu with much more than pizza and pasta. I would say it was more represantative of European or Northern Italian cuisine than strictly Southern Italian.
Prices were moderate - what you would expect for a downtown DC restaurant that caters to business people.
