“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We ate here while visiting colleges in the area. There were three of us and we all thought the food tasted fresh and flavorful, and prices were reasonable. We sat in a corner in the front bar area because we were dressed pretty casually, but there didn't seem to be a dress code as we watched people file in. The service was a little slow, took them at least ten minutes to stop by the first time, but the waitress was friendly and we weren't in a hurry.

“Awesome food, expensive drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Love the family style, great food, great service! The atmosphere was a little loud and the drinks were way over priced for their size, but overall a great evening and experience!!!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Ate here while on a business trip to DC. Was very impressed with the prices (about what you would pay at Olive Garden) and the quantity of food. I ordered one of the classic pastas (lasagna) and got the free pasta to take home (ravioli). You could take the freshness of the ingredients. Service was great and I loved the ambience of the restaurant. I would highly recommend it.

“Leftovers for sure!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Visiting DC from PA, we want to this place because my friends recommended it. I'm not a big pasta fan so I was a little leery. It was average to me, the flavoring of the food was a little bland. We had 8 in our group and that was the consensus because we all ordered different things. The prices were a little high but that was to be expected because of the area. Our servers were great and service was quick but it just didn't do anything for me. I am giving it a 3 because of the white sangria! Delish

“Classic Italian--lots of leftovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We go for the classic pastas, which include taking home 2 entrees--and we always take home the dessert too (which is large enough for 4 portions). It's well prepared, consistent, not designer Italian food and it's good. Go with your appetite. The service is usually just fine and most of the tables are just fine too, although we prefer to sit at a booth in the bar.
