What a find! Had several dinners at their Florence IT location; had to try out the DC. Great service and value. And now find out there are several more restaurants under the same skilled leadership in the immediate area.

Frequent patron here. Amazing staff who always go out of their way to make you comfortable. Food speaks for itself. Begin with the burrata... the rest will come naturally.

The portions were very small during restaurant week and it wasn't worth the price.

The food is outstanding! The soup was awesome. The steak was awesome. The chicken and broccolini was awesome. The only disappointment was the TIRAMISU, of all things at an Italian restaurant. I'll bet it was from the day before... Wet on the bottom. But food food was great!!!

As always, loved the evening at Aa2. Their staff are phenomenal and it is always easy to spend 3 hours tasting our way through their food and beverage menu. The seasonal burrata was phenomenal, as was the seasonal cocktail menu. Traditional salads and pasta never disappoint and coffee and desert course are exactly what you want every time. We're proud to be regulars - someday I hope to get a plate on the wall!

Restaurant seems sitting in a nice neighborhood. The dining room is nice and not overly big. The lunch prix fix was not a bad value. Although the price on opentable said it was $20, but in the restaurant was $22. I like the salad and like the green pepper sauce that comes with the sirloin. As we cook ellexcent steak (top steak house quality) with USDA Prime, the sirloin is bit of rough. But the steak came with exact the degree I want. Just the meat was not the top quality. However, for $22 a set menu, I can't complain. The tiramisu and cheesecake were both good. Again, we made top quality tiramisu at home, so the restaurant was not surprising good to me. Please don't get me wrong, the restaurant is in 4 stars level. They did a good job. Just I have been eating many good meals and it did not surprise me.
