“Dependable and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are quite a few restaurants along 17th street but this the one I always come back to.. Although I have never had a bad meal here, there are some things I really look forward to. There is a shrimp scampi that is served only as an appetizer but in my opinion should be made an entree option. It is the best shrimp scampi I have had in DC. The marinara sauce which is used as a base in several entries, is perfect. The waiters are always there when you need them but you never feel rushed. The steak is of far better quality than that of the steak house a few doors up the street and cheaper. Another great thing about it is how comfortable it is to eat here if you are alone. I look forward to many more pleasant meals here.

“Comfortable food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Comfortable neighborhood Italian restaurant. Nothing fancy, but good service, good food, very reasonable prices. Salad was fresh, entrees satisfying, and large portions so some to take home... would definitely come here again when in the neighborhood (it's two blocks from Theatre J, incidentally)

“Good food and reasonably priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Was a nice dining experience. Happened to be there on a warm evening and enjoyed eating at their street side tables. Food was good but not knock your socks off Italian however it was very reasonably priced for the area. Would return if staying in the immediate area but wouldn't make a special trip.
