My son just recently moved to the Crystal City area and had already been to the Cafe Italia once or twice. We went late on a Saturday. Great "local" - non-chain atmosphere. We were quickly greeted and seated. Fatima also quickly took out order and was was very atentive the entire eveneing. My son had Veal Cristina and I had the Pasta Platter. We were both happy. With respect to the Pasta Platter, I liked the Cannolli and Lasagne more than the Manicotti. They have a decent selection of Italian wines at very reasonable by the bottle prices. I will definitely go back when visiting or working in the DC area.
