Carlyle is in the cool Shirlington area, where a lot of good restaurants are located. Parking is way easier once after 6:30. Make sure to call to make reservations, you can be waiting a while if you don't. I sat outside which was very nice. Started out with Arancini which was suggest by my excellent waitress, she mentioned they were going to stop serving them so I had to try them, glad I did, they were "Muy excellente!" I did not see any pasta on the menu so I asked my waitress if they had any, and there was just not on the menu, "the ole secret menu", what I had was very good, sorry can't remember the name. It had red and yellow peppers, excellent spicy sauce, and chicken. I like to end my dinners with a cappuccino, which was well done also. The wait staff was excellent, very attentive.
