A friend and I had dinner here last evening. I ordered boneless rib rissoto and my friend had mahi mahi. I was somewhat hesitant to go with the rissotto but it turned out to be an excellent dish! VERY NICE! My friend really enjoyed his mahi mahi as well. The available beers didn't seem very interesting so we had a... More

The service was excellent and the food was very good. Eveyone enjoyed their entrees and made particular note of the fresh sauces for fish, pasta and salad dressing. The heat lamps took the edge off the chill in the evening air. It was a lovely evening.

Our second visit and happy to come back. Had the bresaola pizza, gnocchi, and seafood linguine. They happily made a request for a substitution. Nice job in spite of being very busy on a Saturday night. Service was attentive. Ate outside both times and prefer it to inside which is nice but elevated noise levels. There is a bar if... More

The restaurant was very busy with a business party going on inside but we were able to join the other diners who decided to eat outside on this warm Washington evening. The service was as expected, good and the food arrived hot and fresh. There was no pressure to clear down tables for the next customer and we enjoyed a... More

Great Italian food in a nice location. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the portions were generous, and the price was reasonable. The lasagna is homemade and the sauce is delicious. They offer full or half portions, just in case you want to eat a lighter portion. Perfect place for a casual, hearty meal.

Nice location with an outside terrace on the tree lined street. The service was excellent with a good choice on the menu of all the traditional Italian fare. The dishes were nicely presented and the food was well cooked and tasty. No complaints whatsoever and would recommend to my friends.

After having cheesesteaks in Philly, my wife and I wanted a nice meal to round out our vacation. The meal on our first day here was so good we went back again day two. The manager/owner recognized us right away and gave us the royal treatment. Service was great and the food was incredible and would make my Nonna proud.... More

This is an attractive, bright restaurant with a very nice outdoor patio. We were seated immediately. The dishes that came by for other diners were attractive and smelled very good. We plan to return to try the pizza and the pasta. We tried two antipasti freddi dishes. The carpaccio di pesce could have had more flavor and the slices of... More
