Food was okay considering the price. But, the server was too much interested in making us order more food. He even served two bottles of sparking water without asking. I was with a business guest and didn't want to make it a scene. But, I felt uncomfortable, and I wouldn't visit the place again.
Outstanding experience. The dishes were expertly prepared, and the staff were consummate professionals.
Great Italian food. Pasta with lobster was incredible both the food and the presentation with the lobster shell in the plate for decoration. Excellent speedy service. A bit expensive but worth it.
A great find in DC, close to Kennedy Center. Great menu and wine list. After visiting many noisy resturants elsewhere in the city it was nice to visit a quiet place where we could have a good conversation at the table. Service was excellent.
Solid food. Good wine selection. Professional wait staff.
food was very good and the service was great. The restaurant was not crowded when we were there, but it was still noisy. I imagine that with more people, the noise level would prevent easy conversation. Also, while the food was good, the prices were high for the product.
Great food, perfect service! The vine from Piemonte was excellent
The entire evening was amazing ... excellent food, extremely professional, knowledgeable and engaging wait staff, and pleasant environment overall.
I've been to Aperto for casual bites before seeing a show at the Kennedy Center, graduation dinners, and date nights. I always enjoy the food and hospitality, Tony is the member I look forward to most. This restaurant is always recommended when family and friends need a place to eat in Foggy Bottom, and this restaurant and Al Tiramisu are my top recommended choices for Italian in DC.
Absolutely wonderful. Stumbled into Aperto, after GWU drop off for our daughter. Fabulous, thoughtful staff. Amazing food. Outstanding wine & cocktails. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening & have added Aperto to our “must visit” DC establishments. Thank you, Aperto!
Really, really good Italian food. A little slow on the service side, but worth it.
Great service and a great meal. One of my favorite spots for lunch near the office.
Wonderful service and good food. Highly recommended.
We went there during restaurant week and were very happy with our choice. The waitstaff was very attentive, the food was served timely and the ambiance was excellent. We had an excellent tomato soup, fine eggplant rollatini and the fish and past dishes were first rate. It is a good value for the price and we will definitely be back.
Our entire dining experience for three people was memorable. Our wait staff was impeccable, with their outstanding service and professionalism. Everyone knew the menu expertly and provided great recommendations.
Went for Restaurant Week which allowed us to try 3 courses at a good price. Food was good.
Went during restaurant week with another couple. We received a warm welcome & liked the ambience of the dining room. My meal was excellent. I had the lamb meatball dish which I'd liken to having 3 meatball sliders with a delicious tomato sauce. Would have liked to try them on fresh pasta. Excellent service. One item - they do not have valet parking. We did luck out & were able to park on the street less than block away.
Lovely dining experience. Fantastic food. Attentive service. We went on the early side for a Saturday night - 5:45 pm so noise level was great.
Will definitely go again.
Menu is very small and food was ok. Not bad but not in a hurry to go back.
Everything was wonderful! My friends and I had a really great evening :)
We were there on a night during the heat wave and were the only people in the back portion. It worked out well because we had a lot to talk about. The service and food were exceptional. The music could have been better, but it wasn't noticeable after a while. The menu had many options and portion sizes we're good.
This restraunt was phenomenal. Absolutely loved it and the service was so classy and kind
Continues to be perfect!!! Food was superb; very flavorable and perfectly cooked.
Great place for a working lunch. Food is consistently good; pastas and fish are very nice. Service is professional.
A la hauteur de ce qu’on attend d’un bon restaurant
Excellent food and terrific service. will go again for sure
Overall, a very nice experience.
Great for a biz lunch or dinner. Presentation and creativity appreciated.
Overpriced for pirtions
Have been there many times and loved it but this time was awful. Had a reservation and sat for 15 minutes before anyone poured water or asked if we wanted a drink. Food mediocre at best. Service poor, double charged on bar tab. Took very important guests there and we totally embarrassed.Really disappointed for the entire experience, unfortunately.
I've been to Aperto several times and it never disappoints. Service is impeccable, and it's a cozy yet classy place.
Monday evening is a perfect time for a date night at Aperto. We had a quiet unrushed dinner lasting two and a half hours. The service was perfect and respected our desire to have time together and not be interrupted too much. Pace was right on. Food is excellent. I don’t think there is a bad choice on the menu. My second time here and it is now one of my favorite hidden secrets of DC in a great location.
We were two couples who LOVE Aperto! We love the food but we also love the Maitre'd and staff. We are always made to feel special.
Aperto exceeded our expectations. The food was fabulous. There was a wonderful choice of fresh fish in addition to the menu choices. Would definitely recommend Aperto, and can’t wait to go back.
A wonderful meal and nice people. We were a little late but they did a great job of getting us out in time for our show.
Two worms fell from the ceiling. Terrific.
Service is always fabulous and friendly. The pace of service is great, even for a business lunch. We did not feel hurried nor were we worried about the time. Food was great, presentation is great - all good
Solid restaurant. Good for a business lunch. My appetizer of grilled sardines was nice, properly cooked - a little lacking in seasoning. My main of octopus was nice - the octopus was cooked properly and it was a generous portion. The accompaniment of white beans was overcooked, dry and unseasoned. My guests seemed to enjoy their meals. Service was fine.
Great spot. Very reliable.
