Good place in Dupont for reasonably priced, tasty Italian dishes. The food is great, service is solid, and the ambiance is wonderful. We sat upstairs, where I had never been before, and it has a great, cozy selection of tables by windows there. All in all, great place for special or everyday occasions.

This was a nice Italian restaurant. I enjoyed my eggplant parmesan, and my boyfriend enjoyed his seafood linguine. It was affordable, our server was great, and the table settings were pretty. It was fairly quiet and low-key. There was nothing very unique or trendy about the menu--just tasty classics.

This was a great choice for a last minute family dinner with menu items everyone would enjoy and also affordable. All of our dishes were amazing, our waiter was very attentive and quick. We were offered a table in the upstairs dining area since the downstairs was full; which turned out to be fine as other diners with children and larger parties were quickly seated there as well. My only suggestion would be when using the upstairs dining room in the winter months, that they check that the windows are tightly shut or insolated since most of the tables are adjacent to a window and there was a very cold draft coming through the windows. Almost all diners checked to see if the window was completely closed.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Ate there whilst on vacation. Was pleased by its pricing, which was very reasonable. Service was efficient and friendly. Seafood pasta was loaded with pasta and a delicious marinara sauce. Loved eating outdoors. Enjoyed a European experience without splurging on airfare.

We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately. It was a Tuesday and the restaurant wasn't very full when we arrived. Our waitress was attentive but not overly so. Our appetizer came out shortly before the main courses but other than that, the wait time to be served was fine. Everyone enjoyed their meals including the cheesecake for dessert.

Very loud. Had a reservation for 8pm, got there on time but didn't sit until 8:20pm. Host was rude and made us stand outside to wait (had a child adn a senior citizen). Food was mediocre, at best.

We had dinner there on a Tuesday evening. We were seated promptly but it took awhile before the waitress came to our table. She seemed very shy. Our dinner was good basic Italian fare but the service was not good, especially since the restaurant wasn't crowded. The waitress brought our bill without ever asking us if we wanted coffee or dessert. I'm not sure if they even have desserts. Good restaurant if you live in the neighborhood, prices are reasonable, but as a tourist I was looking for a better experience.

My sister and I came for an early dinner and had dinner outside since it was warm. The waiter and hosts were really friendly and nice and checked on the ingredients of the food when I told them about my food allergies. Plus the food was delicious. We saw lots of pairs there but also some groups. This is a good outdoor dining spot.

We were recommended to visit Dupont Italian Kitchen by the owner of William Lewis B&B down the street. The menu is very well priced. We were told to ask for the waiter, Moe,
who took very good care of us. He did not balk at our request to split the caesar salad and an entree, and even comped dessert. There were empty tables at 6:30 on Friday night but by 7:00, the place was jumping. Good food and reasonable prices!

First time here. The food was authentic Italian which can be hard to find in DC. The waiters reminded me of NYC waiters. Didn't smile much but efficient. Would definitely go back for the food and I liked the restaurant atmosphere and decor.
