After a busy day with lots of walking and sightseeing, we were ready for a good dinner. Having checked reviews on TripAdvisor, we dined at Tesoro which was part of and adjacent to our hotel, the Days Inn Washington DC/Connecticut Avenue. It was a short walk from the lobby across the drive-thru roadway to the parking garage to the restaurant’s... More

Nice place to have a night cap. I had dinner there, pretty good and not too high in price. Would be nice if the waitress would get of her smart-phone every now and then.

Though some TA reviews were not kind, we decide to try Tesoro, as it was nearby. We had a good, attentive server. The menu offered a number of American-ized Italian entrees, and a surprisingly respectable if not short wine list. We enjoyed our meal, and the price was right.

Only the fettuccine pasta are homemade so I decided to try them. The shrimps in them with frozen and the mushrooms were bland Paris mushrooms, nothing to stand out. Pasta also had asparagus which were fresh but in very small pieces. The plate was a mountain : wish they'd focus on quality not quantity. Menu is too long, with 6-7... More

Went here and sat on the patio on a lovely Thursday night. The hostess/waitress was a pleasure. She was very sweet at the end of the meal offering bread to have with the remaining sauce. Our appetizers and entrees were plentiful. My pesto chicken pasta was excellent and there was so much I couldn't finish it. Staff was very attentive... More

I've eaten at this neighborhood restaurant ever since it opened. Until today it's been three star - Average. Today at lunch, with a small group that gets together monthly, in my bowel of soup I came across a small metal strip. Something like a metal sliver sheared off a can lid about an inch long. I brought it to the... More

The food was great, the staff friendly, a great little find. I had the filet mignon and it was superb. My brother had the pizza and said it was very good. Nothing like the big box pizzas. If youre staying in the area you must go here to eat
