Diner Reviews
  • "As visitors to any city, we try to find great restaurants that are neighborhood gems. Café Italia was a great find. The food was delicious and the portions large (but not overly so). Our waitress was lovely and very attentive as was all of the serving staff. We enjoyed our first meal so much that we decided to return on our last night in DC. We will certainly recommend Café Italia to anyone who enjoys a great Italian meal. And we will certainly return the next time we are in DC."

  • "I found this restaurant online when I was looking for a place to eat before going to a show at Synetic Theater. I lucked out - very charming little place - the food was very good. And my husband and I stumbled on a bottle of wine that instantly became one of our favorites. The service was friendly and attentive, the food and especially the tiramisu for dessert was quite good!"

  • "Good basic Italian. I had Veal Christina -- one piece of the veal was very tough and I couldn't finish it; the other was fine. Sauce was okay but basially uninspired. Tiramisu was good."

  • "we were on our honeymoon in DCA and found this gem of a restruante when we took a walk looking for a breakfast diner. My new husband was looking for a special place...good food and great wine list. This was in Sept so we opted for an outside table near the street. I would definetly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting the DCA area"

  • "Conveniently located for me during my business stay. red checkered linen table clothes have been replaced with red vinyl. I had Their version of a 3 course prixe fixe special. Food was tasteful and what I was looking for after a day at work. House chianti was also good. More than enough portion size. I left full. Service was attentive but fell apart at the end when I was left waiting for the check too long"

  • "This was a nice place to go for a simple old-style Italian restaurant dinner - there were no checkered table cloths but they would have worked. The food was good as was the service and the price was reasonable. There is nothing flashy or pretentious about the restaurant but the food was hearty and plentiful. Our waiter was efficient and helpful. I had lobster bisque to start and it was flavorful but not the rich taste I expected. We both had pasta dishes and they were well prepared. The cappuccino was sweetened and I would not recommend it."
