The food was outstanding! I had scallop risotto and we shared black gnocchi for appetizer. Both were delicious! Service was excellent - staff was super attentive. The outdoor area was very nice. I will be coming back!

We were in town for a celebration. We were welcomed warmly by the matre d, and the service remained at the highest level throughout. Each person was warm, even sweet, to us, but not cloying or intrusive. I suspect that the staff training must include the concept of kindness. One of our party is vegan, and the restaurant readily provided for her needs without a hint of fuss. The cocktails were creative, the food was absolutely delicious. Each one of us had a different dish, and each one was just what each diner wanted. Wish I lived in DC and could make this a regular destination.

Odd combinations of ingredients, main courses that were more empty plates than anything, and service that disappeared made a $100 per person evening very disappointing.

Was really great for brunch, we decided to go last minute Saturday morning and were able to make reservation easily the morning of. Bottomless drinks were well worth it, food was not bad, although my gnocchi was over cooked. Overall would go back though!

Outdoor dining worked for us both from a comfort level & the extra touch of striped drapery, creating a cabana feel. The luncheon menu, while not offering an abundance of choice still delivered excellent dishes. Our waiter was totally attentive & his recommendation for the wine was spot on. I'll be going there again!

Our party of 6 were seated outside under the tents, which was our preference and a happy surprise since we were told we would be inside. Our server, Michael was outstanding and very attentive with a great personality. The food was delicious with the brussel sprout appetizer, scallop dinner and tiramisu being our favorites. Being our first outing together for a very long time, we stayed longer than normal and never felt pressured to leave which was appreciated.

My family thoroughly enjoyed everything they got and raved about the place. And since I picked the restaurant, I felt vindicated in my selection, despite the fact that I knew they would love it.

We loved all the dishes but were HUGE fans of the seafood risotto, the scallops melted like butter in my mouth. We also loved the torelloni mignon-- the sauce it sooo yummy and well balanced.

You also can't go wrong with the brussels sprouts, black gnocchi and burrata appetizer.

Depending on what kind of wine you like, we were fans of the Super Tuscan (full body, smooth and a tad sweet) and the Sauv Blanc (light, citrusy and a lil effervescent)--both offered by the glass.

The wine/ cocktail list was extensive, and the outdoor dining setup was great. Good food all things said and done. A little pricey for Italian fare, but a great, convenient location and good ambience.
