Foursquare Tips

  • Get the Rigatoni with Sausage!!! Delish! Also the ricotta appetizer! Yum
  • The Bolognese is amazing.
  • Food was absolutely exquisite and service was phenomenal for our group of 10.
  • Great wine selection to pair with perfectly cooked food!
  • The Polenta with poached eggs were amazing! I highly recommend it if you are cool with fontina cheese mixed with it.
  • El tiramisu para ser postre italiano, no es el mejor, he probado mejores
  • Try the bolognese! It's fresh and to die for! The pasta is homemade just like your grandma would make.
  • Solo: get the mussels, ricotta fresca with grilled bread, side of Brussels. For pasta skip the Bolognese and get the Rigatoni alla Norcia!!!
  • amazing kale salad!
  • The carbonara is amazing! Order the Minuetto cocktail, a twist on a French 75.
  • Get the bartender's choice with gin
  • The lobster arrabiata was spectacular last night. Wonderful young latin bartender. Best meal so far at Cinquecento.
  • Best bolognese I've had since I was actually in Italy. Everyone in our party was happy with their meal but the bolognese was the real winner.
  • The octopus and fried baby artichokes were phenomenal!
  • Halibut special Saturday night atop asparagus puree and sunchokes was killer.
  • Great service, fabulous bar, a comfortable inviting restaurant reminiscent of neighborhood trattorias found in Rome. The menu is steeped in the Roman roots of simplicity, custom and comfort.
  • Everything is great! Blueberry French toast is the way French toast should be.
  • Love the outdoor patio and the music. Feels very European. And the design of the bar is amazing too!
  • The pasta is fresh and amazing. I happened to be in the area for art and have eaten here twice in the past four weeks.
  • Grilled octopus (appetizer) is a must.
