Everything about Tortino's is so
inviting. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by a lovely woman with the warmest smile who made us feel as if we were regulars. The wait staff is extremely well trained - they were very attentive, yet not overly. The food is delicious!! Truly. The salads were so fresh and the lemon/olive oil dressing was just right! The osso bucco was divine! Fell off the bone - great comfort food on a freezing cold Washington DC night. The pasta was fabulous, although the portion was a bit small relative to the other choices. Our waiter was great - he was honest and didn't try to oversell! Very refreshing! We will definitely go back. It was very reasonable, relaxing, and delicious! I would definitely recommend!"

You may find it interesting that
the one of the best Italian restaurants in the DC Metro area is owned and operated by a El Salvadorian. Plus most of the staff is El Salvadorian as well. Don't be in doubt though. Food i phenomenal, and the service is nothing less than that."

I took my girlfriend here last
night for a late-valentine's day celebration and we were blown away. The food was absolutely incredible and so inexpensive that my wallet was as happy as my stomach. We didn't have any wine or desserts, although their wine list was quite large from what I saw, and they had a nice variety of quality/prices to suit any dinner. There were people there in business casual attire, dresses, heels, as well as people in jeans and untucked shirts. There weren't any booths, which I tend to prefer for romantic outings, but everything else was so incredible I have to give it 5 stars. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an inexpensive date night/good Italian food."

Outstanding house-made pasta. The
gnocchi with pesto, the agnolotti with lamb, the ravioli with buffalo mozzarella, and the fettucine bolognese were all amazing. The calamari with spicy tomato sauce was all terrific -- perfectly fried with a light batter, not greasy, and served with a delicious spicy tomato sauce. Service was superb -- polite, friendly, and accommodating without being overly solicitous. Prices were incredibly reasonable for DC. So glad to have discovered this place. Will definitely return again and again."

All I can say is that the DC area
could use more places like this. Tortino is a quaint and intimate restaurant, similar to what you'd find in the NY/NJ area. It is not a chain; it is not part of a "group of restaurants"; it can't seat 100+ people at a time. It is what it is: a small, family owned place that takes pride in it's food/service. I just wish it was a BYOB. Anyway..the service was great, as was the food. The agnolotti di agnello (homemade lamb ravioli) was honestly one of the best dishes I've had in recent memory. It was truly exceptional. All in all - check it out, support the mom and pop shop. These guys work hard and do a great job. I highly recommended it."

Our first visit together after my
partner found this great neighborhood restaurant one weekday evening. Food was really excellent - our tendency to order the evening's specials rewarded again. What a wonderful neighborhood spot - very friendly staff, reasonable prices, great food."

- Outstanding food, quite a gem.
This is a classic italian restaurant, if you're looking for a "gourmet/fusion" place, this may not be the place you're looking for. If you like real/classic italian food, but really really good, you should definitely go there. - Highly recommend their seafood linguini, one of the best I've had. - 5-star service, felt like an old-school restaurant. - Can improve the ambience a bit, maybe some italian music to complete the environment. - Can't wait to go back!"

We had a great meal with a very
attentive but unobtrusive wait staff."
