My husband and I were excited to try Mike Isabella's restaurant while we were on our DC Thanksgiving getaway. We went on Tuesday evening around 6:30 and had no trouble getting a table upstairs without a reservation. Our waiter was a bit disappointing and not very forthcoming with information about the small plates or portion sizes. My husband and I shared a Hobbit pizza which was delicious. We also got the Chinese ribs which were very tender and tasty, and the chicken thigh in pepperoni sauce, also very good..I loved the crispy skin and juicy chicken. We also had the Chocolate Budino for dessert and just loved it. We can't wait to go back on our next trip. I gave the service a 3 because I didn't love the waiter and felt uncomfortable after ordering dessert when another waiter asked why we were still there. I will say our water glasses never ran dry. I also gave a 3 for atmosphere mostly because we were so close to the people sitting behind us we couldn't move the chair out any further, and would get knocked every time the person behind us would get up. This got to be rather uncomfortable. With that said, it's the food that will bring us back.
