    Menu selections were good but all food was average and cocktails were not very good at all. Do not recommend the panzanella salad. Calamari was a bit soggy.

    Food was really good. The service was good as well. Not a single issue with either of those. Our only issue was the location of our table, in the middle of the floor in front of a non-working fireplace. We moved one chair to the side of the table so as to no be in the middle of the floor. Additionally, the fireplace mantel behind us was the location of the wine glasses and the pepper mill, which caused some traffic over our heads during the meal. As a result of the table location, we did not enjoy the experience as much as we would have otherwise.

    Underwhelming starter size and seasoning. Service was very slow, although that can be overlooked as the staff were really busy. The pasta main was undercooked. The ambiance was very nice and staff were friendly. It was certainly a popular place.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants in DC. We’ve recently moved and made sure to visit while we were in town. The food was still as good as we remember, but the service was a bit lacking. Sat outside which was lovely.

    Patio seating was lovely. Every dish on the menu was alluring, but my choice of the panzanella salad and the gnocchi in yellow tomato sauce turned out to be a winner.

    We arrived late because of the marches and parades in downtown DC and the very many street closures. We had theater tickets and I called the restaurant to say that we were running late. The waiter asked us right away about when we needed to leave and he was excellent at managing the timing of our dinner. The entrées included: the lasagna; tuna; ravioli; and shrimp and scallop risotto. The bottle of Chianti was delicious as were all the entrées.

    Food was pretty good, but not very exciting. Pasta and gnocchi texture were very good. But sauce flavors lacked seasoning and acid. Calamari was fried nicely, but both sauce and the batter were under seasoned. Caesar needed fresh lemon. Panzarella was overdressed and soggy. Service was slow and spotty, while being friendly. Our plates sat and were never taken before the next course came, twice. The environment was charming. I would return and hope for a better experience next time.

    Our party was warmly welcomed and the staff accommodated our request for outdoor seating. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and made good recommendations regarding the menu. The food was excellent from starters to mains to dessert. Best of all, we were there on 1/2 price wine night so we had two delicious bottles from the broad and varied wine list. Highly recommended!

    Good meal, if a little under seasoned. - the waitress was excellent but struggled with little help on a Monday. We sat outside- which was lovely, but we did see 2 rats on the edges of the patio. While that’s not an issue at this restaurant alone, it did detract from the ambiance.
