    The food far exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere was welcoming, and the servers were incredibly friendly and quick to service. It's definitely one of our new favorites. Just be sure to bring an appetite. The portions are huge, so it is well worth the price.

    The food was great and the table service was excellent. However the front of house staff needs to be retrained. I clearly stated that I had a reservation upon arrival. I was 5 minutes early and the person asked if my companion had arrived. Upon finding she hadn’t I was rudely dismissed while they seated people off the street! When I asked to be seated I was treated like I asked for free lunch. The young woman at the door was stressed out but that isn’t my problem.

    Food is wonderful. Waiter and servers were excellent. The lack of a fifth star on service has to do with, possibly the website, possibly the front desk. Although there was no distinction when I initially made the reservation, I wrote in the comments that we wanted an outdoor table. They told me I had requested an indoor table and the only area that was open then was for "parties." I have reserved previously and there was a place to indicate where you wanted to sit. This time there was no opportunity to do that, but I do expect them to read the notes.

    Great place to go for a special occasion. A bit noisy but what else would you expect from an Italian restaurant where large parties gather. Lobster arancini was delicious! Also, the meatballs were perfect! Very large portions - would love to be able to get half portions so that we could have tried more dishes. Wait staff were excellent.

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
