This (in my opinion) is going to be a great spot for those looking to grab dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center. After dinner, it took us 15min to walk to the main entrance. They also have a nice bar section for drinks after work that's close by Foggybottom Metro station. The food was also really good and the service was top-notch. We will definitely be returning soon.

Excellent meal, all freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Went with a friend and we split the the carpaccio small plate (very good size for 2 people), then each had a salad. Lingered over a spritzer because the ambiance was great. Not noisy and good separation between tables from where we sat. Clean throughout. Great service, very personable and attentive waiter (Grayson). Will def return on another performance night!

We were told it was fine when we arrived and then were rushed for our food, app, and beverage order all at once. If we had known the hard cutoff for the kitchen at 10, we absolutely would have made a reservation elsewhere. This is more so a failing on OpenTable for allowing anyone to book a reservation so close to closing without the restaurant able ti accommodate reasonably.

The food and service are usually excellent. On this occasion, the service was horrible. They took quite a while to take our orders. In a party of three people, they forgot one of the orders. No one came to check on us throughout the meal, nor did they offer dessert or coffee when we were finished. We requested the bill from multiple servers before one of them finally brought it to us.

Great food at reasonable prices. Terrific staff from reception to table service. The chef(s) are top notch and if you had a blindfold on you might think you were in Italy. Highly recommend - there is something here for everyone (favorites include the salads, fish, and pizzas for the lunchtime hour; meats and pastas great at dinner).

The food was--as always in my experience--excellent. And although bad weather outside was driving outdoor diners indoors, at no point did the restaurant appear to be overburdened or hectic. Well done.

Beautiful space, very open and filled with light. Professional and helpful staff. Unfortunately, food was just meh. Very small portions for the price. Flavor was just ok. Presentation was nice but doesn't make up for blah taste. Lots of other choices of restaurants in the area. Come here for ambiance and drinks but go elsewhere for a meal.

Skip the branzino thé fish tastes great, nice char, but the salt is lacking, drops the flavor and the vegetables it’s served with taste like salted tap water.

The few times I've been is moderately crowded the food... THE FOOD, is just simply amazing!! The portions are moderate but SO tasty, you will still be satisfied. If you go, the garlic bread is a MUST but honestly, I want to go back to try every single plate on their menu.

I went to this restaurant twice within a week and had 2 different waiters. They both were terrible, slow and not attentive. The guy customer brought me the bill and waited staring at the bill to make sure I leave a tip. I usually leave 20 percent no matter what, but it was a big waste for his work. Not going back and not recommending it to anyone who wants to have a good experience. The food is fine, nothing outstanding, but is quite pricey for what they give.

This time I had the Banana coffee cake (to die for!) and the Breakfast Rosa pizza. Both knocked it out of the gastronomical park! Our server Ty was welcoming and attentive. And Ron always makes sure to stop by to make sure that everything's just right. Can't wait for my next visit!

Sometimes when you sit outside you are not attended to as much as indoors. Our waiter was very attentive and present whenever we needed anything. The food was great, the Short Ribs in particular. We will definitely go back when we visit Washington again.

Sat down at 8.10 and ordered food at 8.20; no starters, just three main pasta dishes. Food took nearly an hour to come out, so we took it ‘to-go’ at 9.15 instead. I’m sure it would have tasted good had we been able to eat it fresh in the restaurant.
