What Insiders Are Saying
Ghibellina is a neighborhood Italian spot in Logan Circle. You’ll come for the pizzas and pastas, but stay for the cozy vibes and friendly service.
Delicious food but the service was a bit slow. Have been before and would definitely come back!
Amazing food! Highly recommend for a date night or special occasion. Excellent, authentic Tuscan cuisine, fabulous wine list, and the staff is very kind and attentive. One of my favorites in DC!
Note: happy hour prices are only at bar, not sit down tables
Food was good, the servers was beyond slow and not attentive
Cool place and not ideal for a quiet couples evening but we really enjoyed the buzzy feel of the place. Service was slow to start (they were busy) but very pleasant. Pizzas are great! Highly recommended.
Ghibellinas quite frankly is “Much Ado About Nothing!” The menu is unnecessarily confusing with too few choices. The food was expensive, the servings were sparse and not at all remarkable. We left the restaurant hungry.
Upon entering, one would think from the ambiance that you were going to a quaint and classy restaurant. However, the loud music is similar to being at a night club.
The final straw for our party was when a couple walked in with their dog (who was not a service dog!) and sat the dog in the booth right at the table. Disgusting and unhygienic!
I will NEVER return!
When there for Mothers Day food was excellent and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant.
To start off, the night as a whole was completely amazing. The food was great and the service was outstanding. The only slight downside was the noise level. It was a Friday night when I went so many people there seemed to be meeting for drinks after work so it was mpretty loud. My date was only about 2 feet away from me across the table but I had to almost yell so I could hear him. Other than that, it was completely worth the money. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We have been getting pizza as carry out for quite some time. We have also sat at the bar before . This time we reserved a table. Salad was excellent, and we knew that the Quattro fromagi pizza was excellent too. Then we got tiramisu, with an Amaro tasting and 1 expresso. Also had a cocktail before dinner. Everything was great! We will be dining there again, soon!
Great place in a lively location. Food is off the charts good.
First time there, had a great meal. Definitely coming back.
My waiter (Lorenzo) was excellent. He recommended some great food options and the food was excellent.
Introducing 14th Street to foreign friends
The fritto misto was nothing special. A different sauce than marinara might have made it better. My lamb pasta was great, however, as was the nutella cheesecake.
Incredible food, space, service, and people. Could not say enough good things!
Went there to celebrate my friend getting a new job. The hostess gave us a table that was quiet and that was appreciated. Hunter was our server and was on point...as always.
I ordered a ribeye and my sister ordered brick-pressed chicken. We split them and shared. I can't recall having either better prepared. Absolutely delicious!
Food is good, but Ive beenrhwrw a few times and it’s not consistent. Drinks are small pours for expensive prices.
The food is horrible. My daughter and I ordered linguine with clams. It was terrible. Very water and very blend
Great service.. food was excellent..
great location, great food, excellent service, wonderful ambiance
We had such a nice time at Ghibellina!! Our food was delicious and was not heavy at all!! The burrata was perfect! Our waitress was the sweetest as well! After dinner, she took us down to SOTTO which is their downstairs bar. The atmosphere was so cool and they had amazing live music!! Thank you again!!
Pizza was delicious. Wish I would have known you can only get happy hour prices at the bar (no res). I'll do better next time. Great vibe. Excellent service. We loved it.
My husband and I had a lovely time here. Made even more special by our waiter/ server Lorenzo. Ghibellina is lucky to have him on their staff. Friendly, exuberant, thoughtful, helpful and timely!!! I had ordered the tagliatelle but found it was not what I had anticipated as well as cool. Lorenzo promptly suggested an alternative which was perfect. A lamb dish with cherry tomatoes, olives and wide/ broad large rigatoni style noodles. It was delicious and well seasoned. The Margarita pizza was phenomenal. We are always on the search for the perfect thin crust pizza, with the perfect dough and properly cooked to our liking and they hit all three markers. Dough,tomatoe sauce and crispness all right on. And this is from a guy whose mother was from Napoles.
It was fine for brunch. We had an 1100 reservation but had to wait for them to open the doors about 5 after. The food and service was great.
I reserved a high-too table at 8:45. I called at 8:35 to say I was in traffic but would arrive by 8:55. I arrived at 8:54. By that point, the high top tables were taken and I was told there was a wait for normal tables. We sat at the bar instead. While the experience was still a positive one, the idea that I could reserve a spot and then not receive it left a bad taste in my mouth. I’m not sure if I will make future reservations for dinner, or rather relegate this spot to a place I will stop in for a drink and leave.
Very overpriced relative to the quality and quantity of the food. We had pizza is which were very skimpy on the ingredients, and it was slightly undercooked.
Further, beware of the valet parking. Not advertised is a $12 parking fee. This, plus the tip For the valet adds a tax of 15 to 20% on a dinner for two.
Would not return.
I would Recommend for pizza only. Pizza is very good and executed well
Went for a brunch date and were accommodated by the window on a beautiful day. Our waitress was lovely and had wonderful suggestions which she was spot on about. The risotto cakes were amazing and hazelnut gelato was out of this world. Bloody Mary’s and mimosas for $6 were not a bad addition as well. Highly recommend their brunch.
AMAZING! Amazing food, service, everything!! Will definitely be back. Perfect for a couples date night.
Food was amazing. Although, we either read the menu wrong or it didn't include details like prosciutto in brussel sprouts which was a bummer as a vegetarian. We ordered items we thought were safe for me and werent't. Gnocchi was amazing. It was pretty loud and the tables are overcrowded. I don't need someones butt cheeks resting on my table as they are getting to their seat. We still enjoyed it and would go back.
I specifically was asked about allergies and I shared my allergies.
I get an appetizer with bell peppers , unknown and unlisted , which ruins the rest of my day.
I pointed that out to our waitress and NO “accommodations” were offered. Pretty disappointing. Usually my experience at ghibalina is 4.5 to 5 star
Hopping place for a fun weekend dinner. Highly recommend the tiramisu and any pasta dish.
It was a great night to
Great food and excellent service!
Alina was an amazing waitress and the owner was super nice to our boys!
Amazing food - especially loved the pizza!
We were visit Washington for a few days from the UK. Looking for an Italian restaurant I found this restaurant on the internet within walking distance from our hotel. I booked it online which was helpful & got directions. The ambiance was very pleasant, the service good considering it was a Sunday evening. We had a delicious meal & enjoyed our visit.
The portions were small and the prices were high. Could be a good place for pizza and drinks.
Delicious food and great service!
Off the chart in every aspect. I’m o,verlooking that after I had a Manhattan and a bottle of wine, the manager hustled me into buying a second bottle of a French wine which was rather poor. Should’ve read the label.
