What a perfect dining experience to cap off our week. Timothy and Pedro were so friendly and gracious and dinner was perfectly delicious. We'd make this a regular if we lived in dc. High class dining with a local neighborhood attitude. Many thanks.

The food was good, the service not so much.
Our wine was not delivered until we had almost finished our appetizers. Then there was a one-hour-plus gap between removal of our appetizers and delivery of our entrees, with a nearby large table being served before us even though they had ordered twenty minutes after we did.
The waiter kept apologizing for the kitchen delay, saying there were only two kitchen staff on a Saturday night, but we are in no rush to return.

Fabulous meal which included my lamb ravioli and my friend’s grilled pork chop cooked to perfection.
Tiramisu was memorable as well.
I found it very noisy.

My husband & I took our daughter to celebrate her 21st birthday before a concert. The entire experience was wonderful from start to finish. We each ordered an appetizer (mine was the grilled octopus special which I highly recommend) and an entree. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was exceptional. Our waiter even surprised my daughter with a complimentary dessert with candle and song. The restaurant has a lovely neighborhood feel! We will be back.

Not as enjoyable as our last visit. The food was good but not what we remembered in the past – and pricey for the quality. The service was disjointed. It took multiple requests before our server came to visit us. The hostess, however, was paying attention and stepped in to help out.

We were suggested this place by our hotel so decided to give it a shot. A nice, small place with a good ambiance. The portions were on the smaller side but so delicious. I got the mushroom appetizer and the risotto of the day, which I would recommend for anyone. Would come back again if in the area.

The food is delicious , the salads , the main course lamb and fish and pasta were very tasty.
And the desserts were also good.
The only negative is the decor was a bit drab and the lighting was dark.

Went here after finding it on google as a going away dinner. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we had to wait long closer to 8 to be seated. Although we had to wait the food and service made up for it. Definitely on my list of favorites now.

Food actually quite good. Service was a problem, could be covid-related. Orders taken very quickly and delivered quickly but simple things like getting water glasses refilled and even paying the check were challenges. Will definitely return and hope they’re able to add an extra server.

The food was quite good, especially the home made pasta. The staff was warm, welcoming and professional. There were not a lot of entrees but they were all appealing. When I made the reservation I requested that a candle be put on the dessert as it was my companion's birthday. Four or 5 staff came to table with the dessert and sang "Happy Birthday". The cake decorator was an artist since all the letters and other decorations were in beautiful script. I will add that the restaurant is reasonably priced.

Just delightful unpretentious little neighborhood Italian place in NW DC. Nothing glamorous but simple Nona style cooking with some non-Nona bits. Last night it was a fresh, balanced and perfect tuna tartare. In my experience this dish can be a disappointment . Pre made and served ice cold. Not here.
They say you can tell a restaurant by the bread basket. Here one receives a small bagatelle of crusty on the outside pillowy on the inside bread with a small plate of good olive.
The fettuccine Bolognese was perfect.
No piped in cliche music, nice friendly mixed crowd, a bit of cross table talk. House cocktail is a blood orange martini. It was perfect for a midsummer night. Will be back soon

The food was fantastic! I got the goat cheese gnocchi and it might have been the best pasta I’ve ever had. Everyone else in our group agreed their dishes tasted great, as well as the cocktails. Our group went for a birthday, and I was a little bit disappointed that we got charged for a slice of cheesecake they brought out for the birthday since we didn’t order it. Besides that, experience was fantastic, and would definitely recommend for a nice night out with delicious Italian food.
