    For years I have driven by this place and it looked busy. So finally with some friends I suggested we try it. We sat down and for at least 10 minutes mine showed up other than the menus and wine list. Then the owner comes over to talk and says you're pretty to one if the two woman. Just rude!! The bread comes to the table and the Italians bread tastes like some cheap brand I'd buy at a supermarket. The waiter comes after I motion him over. The 1/2 order is taken. When the appetizer comes we give the order. The mussels were nothing special with 3 pieces of shrimp. My veal bone was bland. Our friends said there's was so so. Never waste your time and I have to say we fine a lot at a strong number of 4 & 5 rated places.

    Le Perla was good, just not great. Food was fine, but waiters seemed pretty uninterested in the whole agenda. Not rude, but not engaged, either. With so many good Italian choices in the city, I probably wouldn't put this near the top.

    While the food was very good, the prices seemed high compared to better looking restaurants -- this place is very "dated." The "artwork" on the walls (while that is personal taste -- but so is food) was distracting! To me the restaurant seemed a bit pretentious -- and they didn't have proper stemware to serve a rare Napa Cabernet that I brought from my cellar .

    I've been here several times and enjoy the decor and the atmoshere of the restaurant. Very beautiful decor. My meals have generally very good but my wife's Lobster Ravioli had a bit of a chemical taste which suggests that fresh lobster is not used in preparation? It is a busy friendly place and I will continue to go back.

    The restaurant is lovely.I had the mushroom risotto which was truly made to order.it would have been really good if they had used a variety of mushrooms, rather than just plain white mushrooms with very little flavor. When the waiter asked about dessert, i asked him if they could make me plain Zabaione. The waiter's response was an immediate No. I was just commenting to my companion that his answer should have been "Let me ask the chef." At that moment, out of the kitchen comes this short, gray-haired man who had to be the chef! What a sweet man. I flash my nicest smile and ask him if he could make me some plain Zabaione. His answer: "Of course." We shake hands and I thank him. Not only do I get the perfect dessert, he never charged for it.

    The chef and owner of restaurant comes out of the kitchen and personally welcomes his customers. Everything is made fresh daily by him. All fish are wild caught and flown in (nothing is farm raised). Everyone in our party had different appetizers and main courses so we could taste each other's meals. Everything was EXCELLENT. Apparently this restaurant seems to be a known place in DC by all VIP. The staff was also excellent and quite attentive. I would definelty return here on my next visit to DC. Quite a find!

    An excellent experience from being greeted by name, to the exceptional service to the excellent salads, main courses of chicken Marsala and chicken with lemon sauce to the tiramisu and cappuccinos, our conversation with Vittorio Testa and the complimentary lemoncellos. One of the best DC dining experiences we've had. We look forward to returning.

    I don't expect to go to a fancy restaurant and be overwhelmed by cooking odors and stale food smells in the furniture. It doesn't bother some people, but it does bother me. The food was not bad, but not special either. Each of us had a pasta dish and each had a heavy cream sauce on the pasta. Maybe we didn't read the menu carefully enough--perhaps the menu noted that each sauce also had cream in it. However, the sauces were just too heavy for the other ingredients. We had escargot and carpaccio appetizers. The former had a sweet, rather than garlicky taste. Not bad, but I would not have ordered it had I known. The carpaccio was just thinly sliced rare roast beef with no flavoring and a heavy pesto sauce on top. And it cost too much.

    Saturday was a fantastic day amidst the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC. My wife and I were visiting our Son and his girlfriend for the weekend. We had made a reservation at La Perla for 7:30pm. We arrived one hour early. La Perla staff had no problem seating us early. The food and service was excellent! After we were finished with our main course, the Chef (Victor) visited our table to make sure all was well. He was charming and engaging, we had no problem explaining how much we had enjoyed our meals. Great veal, great pasta! Wow, would I come to La Perla again, absolutely! P.S. I inadvertently left my expensive camera under the table. Shortly after we had left, I received a call from the staff. Thank You La Perla!!

    Almost missed out on this one. Glad I changed my reservation. This place is top itch from top to bottom staff is good, although I think we got a new waiter, and the good is even better. The owner Chef came by our table to check on us not once but twice! Very nice man that knows how to cook. Recommended for anyone traveling to DC.

    Our second visit here. Friends were in town and had heard about the place so wanted to try it. Overall very good. Food was excellent, I had the pheasant which was excellent. The antipasto was very good though presentation unimaginative. Lasagne, pasta and seafood dishes were also excellent. Fried calamari good size for 2 to share. The waiter was good but continued to reach in front of me all the time which is something that never happens in fine dining establishments. I though he would push me back with his arm on several occasions.The wine list was mediocre and selections of wine by the glass was awful, though I find this typical in most DC restaurants. No half bottles available. The Chianti by the glass was God awful! Recommended

    I've often passed La Perla on my way to Georgetown for dinner after concerts at the Kennedy Center. What a mistake: the kitchen is unequivocally one of the best in Washington. Everything showed the highest standard of sourcing and preparation. From the perfectly al dente pappardelle...with a tomato sauce that for once actually tasted like fresh tomatoes...to a Caesar Salad that was surprisingly light and crispy: these basics showed that someone was paying attention. Then veal Marsala whose sauce had flavors that were bright and suffused with wine and spice, juicy mushrooms, accompanying succulent pieces of veal that were seared perfectly yet so moist. Traditional Italian cooking with the freshest ingredients and sublime preparation.

    This is a retro kind of a place, Italian food. My sautéed trout with crabmeat was pretty good, but I did not understand the cold fish head among the asparagus. Was it to show that they started with a whole fish? My wife said that her veal dish did not have very much veal with the melted cheese. The chef gave us shopping bags with La Perla on them. He was very nice. The waiters were very good. It is an attractive setting. The food may need a refresher course.

    I enjoyed everything about La Perla. The service was great and the owner chef visited every table. The place is just the right size. I believe the servers were Italiano and I found it difficult to understand them at times. The lobster and shrimp soup was delious. I also enjoyed the coconut shrimp and seafood lasangua. La Perla is a bit pricy but worth every penny. I will visit La Perla again.

    After the Bach Consort's fabulous performance of the St. John Passion, we returned to La Perla for a tasty meal. Selections of burrata, meats, and crispy calamari fritti started our meal. Our main courses consisted of tender osso buco, a veal chop, and a fillet of branzino prepared al forno (in the oven). The Chef always make his way to our table to extend greetings. Our dinner was topped off by some Grapa, Casada Cake and a Tira Misu. The service provided by Shahrokh was stellar. We look forward to returning to La Perla of Washington soon.

    I had passed this gem walk from Georgetown to Foggy Bottom. When I made a quick change of plans, I made reservations on Open Table and I thank my lucky stars! The ambience, which has the flags of the Sienna palio horse races and other Italian themes but retains a bright uncluttered air, is wonderful. The service was impeccable even BEFORE Chef Vittorio made the rounds. My son said that the Chicken Parm/pasta were the best of his life...and he has had great Italian food all over Italy and at his nonna's home. My husband and I both chose the branzino which was simultaneously delicate and yet full of taste. I had the pasta fagioli for my soup and an arugula salad which were second to none. Will be coming back again and again.

    We can't say enough great things about this wonderful restaurant. My partner and I went here to celebrate our anniversary in March 2014. We were immediately greeted with a smile and escorted by the host to our table. We were 15 minutes early but that didn't seem to matter! Our server was Shahrokh and he was fantastic. He explained the menu and answered all of our questions with ease. Chef Vittorio Testa himself came out and talked to every table in the place, including ours ... such a friendly and warm gentleman. The atmosphere is so peaceful and romantic here. You can actually have a normal conversation without screaming across the table. The food ... wow! Everything we ordered was flavorful and cooked to perfection.

TAs you walk in you are looking at a display case of mouthwateringly delicious cakes and desserts. Once shown to your table the service is unassuming but efficient. There is a huge tile motif on one wall with a fountain breathing a gentle bubble of smoke. A huge bar to the right of the fountain offers respite to those waiting a table or wishing to linger after a meal. Looking on Pennsylvania Ave traffic is always interesting and a good spot to people gaze. The food is very good & your waiter can guide you through the menu. Expect to see the chef wander out for a chat in person or the President!!
