A Taste of ItalyFinemondo is a gem. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJust What I Was Looking ForI was traveling alone on business and was looking for a traditional Italian restaurant where I could be quiet and relax following a tiresome day. Finemondo was the answer! First of all, they allow an OpenTable reservation for one when other restaurants in the area would not. Secondly, they treated me like I was the only patron the room (which was far from the case). I had a wonderful meal, enjoyed a great bottle of wine and stayed long enough to experience their wonderful desserts. Regardless of the occasion or the number in your party, you will not be disappointed.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Osso BucoThe Osso Buco was fall-off-the-bone tender. Limited wine list, but there are some very good choices - they do have a Brunello. Attentive waitstaff.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!I was visiting DC for the weekend to run a half marathon and chose this place so I could carb-load on pasta the night before. It was a great place with delicious food! The service was a little slow but we didn't mind. They have a fantastic discount on wine on Saturday nights- which I thought was rare. All bottles were 25% off and select bottles were 50% off. (They had a large selection of wines to choose from.) I recommend this place to anyone!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our dinner here.Enjoyed our dinner here. Food, decor ambiance were perfect. Will return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was close to theRestaurant was close to the theaters, ie National, Warner, and & Ronald Reagan bldg so you could consider it a "neighborhood gem". Food was delicious and served with vegetables. Calamari salad was excellent. Stuffed meatloaf is not something you usually find on a menu, and it was outstanding. Service was great.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTheir Italia food is absolutelyTheir Italia food is absolutely delicious and it is very clear that they place a high priority on service.

A lovely setting too, and a real find downtown (13th and F)3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a lovely restaurantThis is a lovely restaurant where you can have a quiet business lunch. Given that so many restaurants are very noisy, I appreciate the relative serenity of Finemondo's coupled with their very good food and service.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery attentive service. FoodVery attentive service. Food was good, we will go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to Finemondo and the experience exceeded our first. We were intrigued by an appetizer on the menu -- calamari "meatballs" -- and ordered that along with Ragu of beef over polenta. Both were delicious! Our main dishes: orrechietti con pesche and sun-dried tomatoes, cappellachi, a ravioli-like pasta stuffed with butternut squash and amaretti cookies, and Tuscan braised short ribs in a chianti sauce. All 3 dishes were flavorful, especially the Tuscan braised short ribs -- the meat was so tender it just fell apart. The portions are ample and served hot. And the wait staff is attentive but not overbearing. Also, I would mention that Finemondo's wine list has a nice variety of Italian wines. Will definitely return!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait hostess & wait staffThe wait hostess & wait staff were amazing! The food was very good! Awesome experience!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and family friendly!We tried this place after a long day at the zoo with three small kids. The wait staf was very patient, helpful, and friendly. We tried a couple of the mozarella salads and the mussels for appetizers, and all were excellent. I had a fine Chicken Piccatta, and other dishes ordered included the minestrone, eggplant parmiggiana, and Ravioli. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, and the cannoli for dessert was top notch. Prices were reasonable, and i would definitely dine here again!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were hereMy husband and I were here many years ago and just happened on it again when we found it on OT. The atmosphere was great especially for a Friday night... Not too loud or crowded. The food was delicious, the service attentive... The menu had many options to choose from.. and still they were very accommodating to making my dinner to my liking..( i'm not a big butter or creamy sauce eater). The waiter steered me away from making a bad choice of a sweeter dish with red sauce, not a good combo.. The second option was just delightful. I would definitely go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian food!!!The food was great and customer service was outstanding. I live in Oregon where greeting customers and having polite waiters doesn't exist, so I really appreciated the great customer service. I will definitely visit Finemondo when I visit Washington D.C. again3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMdiscovered a nice happy hourdiscovered a nice happy hour venue.
I enjoyed calamari rings were very large but tender and delicately battered.
