“Excellent eats in Dupont”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were the first patrons of the day on our visit to this restaurant. Despite that the waiter was very attentive, and the food came out very quickly. The lunch options are pretty limited and small compared to the gigantic size of the dinner portions. We will definitely be coming back.

“Little Italy in DC”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Food was fresh and delicious and the service incomparable. It was the traditional Buca di Beppo I had come to love in Cherry Hill, NJ before they closed.

“Not the best Italian but okay”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

I've had better Italian food! Service and atmosphere were average and okay. Food was definitely over priced for not being the best Italian food I've ever had. We have buca in Houston and I always wanted to go so while at conference in DC we decided to check it out....and let's just say I have no desire to go back to the one in Houston.

“Fun for the Family!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Recommended by the hotel staff, this restaurant was amazing. The walls were lined with an eclectic mix of celebrities, average people and funny situations. It was a bit dark inside, spacious but tightly packed with tables.
The people next to us shared a pizza served on a board propped up with tomato cans.
The staff were inviting, accommodating and helpful. I highly recommend the family dining style where large platters are brought out to share.
The food was very good, not greasy or bland. Must try the brownie sundae! :O

I'd return here for a family dinner or romantic evening, or just by myself to sneak some comfort food. Highly recommend.

“Family Style!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The food is outstanding but it comes family style, so you kill two meatballs with one buck. big bowls of pasta to be passed around, so no one goes hungry and for a very good price! You can't beat it if you are hungry and want great food!
