  • For her 49th birthday on Jan. 17, the first lady had a special menu of fusilli with veal ragu, roasted tile fish with fennel and thyme puree and ricotta cheese mousse with carmelized pear.
  • definitely a "Who's Who" of DC. Sat next to Greg Monroe (former member Georgetown basketball, current Detroit Piston) twice and current Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. food and atmosphere are great
  • Consistently OUTSTANDING establishment! It's a place to see and be seen.
  • The wine list is great and the pasta is even better. Its a local favorite for politicians, too.
  • Tiramisu mmmazing!!!!!
  • Octopus salad appetizer is only surpassed by the legs of the clientele.
  • Best Italian food in DC. Excellent service. You will not be unsatisfied. :-)
  • If you're not with group or in need of a table, sit at the bar and let Ringo take care of you. Best bartender/waiter in DC. He knows the menu and the wine list and has NEVER steered us wrong.
  • Food is average. Highly OVERrated. This place is a classic DC power haunt. You go here more to see/be seen vs. any extraordinary meal you might enjoy.
  • The food passes if you've never met an Italian person and the wait staff will talk about you behind your back before they completely ignore you.
  • "My favorite DC restaurant. I once accidentally sat down in the lap of the Archbishop of Canterbury during a Sunday brunch there." Christopher Hitchens
  • Every time I've been here, it's been stuffy. Good people watching
  • Milanesa con pasta y calamares con vino
  • The food is good but the services too bad
  • Get the baba for dessert. Amazing.
  • Pasta: perfect portion (think non-American), excellently cooked (al dente done properly) and exquisite flavour.
  • Delicious black truffle risotto. Sit outside if you can. Winning ambience!
  • one of my favorite, if not number one, restaurant in America. Place to celebrate, impress, enjoy and have a marvelous meal with family and friends
  • REALLY good calamari <3
  • I wish their bar-r (Julia) improve her poor service skills. If u are @ the half empty bar it takes 20 min to acknowledge you. you have better chance to get a nice table then get your drinks from her
