Liked ambiance. Food well prepared. Served
$20 appetizer NOT ordered. Assumed appetizer part of meal...ate it...paid for it anyway because ate it.
Very good food and very good location. Service was also very good.
Amazing service! We ordered seafood, the octupos was spectacular.
I like to have business lunches at Aperto as they offer very good food (fish in particular) at reasonable prices in a warm, friendly and quiet ambiance....
The lunch for four people cost almost $400. I never thought of this bill!
I don’t think I will never go back there.
I love this restaurant, the servers are attentive and the food is always perfect. I specifically come for the tiramisu!
Food and service were great. Drink preparation might need a little modernization. We were there on a Sunday early and it was overly quiet however it's a great atmosphere, lovely inside, and the chef did an excellent job with our fish specials and appetizers.
The food was amazing and so was the service and ambiance. We will definitely be back!
As it turns out, I was welcomed by Chef Luigi upon arrival - attentive and friendly service, excellent food, fun place.
Food was a bit mediocre for the price!
Fantastic fresh food, great Italian meal and a perfect way to spend Parent's weekend with our daughter. Thank you.
Great friendly service. Portions very small, value for money on the low end.
The food is very good, and there is a relative dearth of very good restaurants in the Foggy Bottom area. The bartenders are friendly, and make excellent cocktails. At happy hour, the cocktails on "special" are reasonably priced. But the cocktails off happy hour are way to expensive. $16 for a Negroni? It was a very good Negroni, mind you, but $16 is insane! The restaurant is not typically busy for dinner, and I think the prices may have something to do with it. I bet Aperto would be more popular if they would shave a few dollars off the price of the food.
The meal was yummy and the staff are friendly. It wasn't busy at the time but the room is cozy and comfortable.
Awesome waiter and yummy food!!
Excellent! Service was great, food was delicious. The seafood stew was outstanding as was the chicken and the ravioli. Gelato and tiramisu also very good. I can’t wait to go back.
The food, décor and service were excellent. Appetizers were very pricey for what you got but the entrees were wonderful and reasonably priced. We went early before heading to the Kennedy Center so it was quiet (and nice).
Outstanding food, excellent menu and wine list, great location and service. Highly recommend.
We were dining before the theater and arrived before the restaurant opened, so we sat outside in the hot sun waiting for 5PM. A few moments after we sat down, we were greeted by an employee who invited us inside and offered to take our drink order and get our evening started. We had lovely drinks, salads, entrees, desserts and a bottle of wine. The food was quite good and the specials were a nice addition to the regular menu. As the restaurant became more crowded, the service slipped a bit but we were all very pleased with our entire experience.
Love Aperto - my son attends GWU and we happened upon Aperto one night for dinner. It was outstanding. We had a large party. and the service was amazing, and the food was incredible. I could not stop thinking about my entrée, and could not wait to go back. My son moved back to school this past weekend and I made sure we had dinner reservations at Aperto, and again, we were not disappointed. Than you!
The entire group thought that the food was excellent. It is a very quiet Italian restaurant, with a small but very good menu. The staff was excellent. I read some of the reviews that talked about service being slow. I think it is more that the staff is not concerned about rushing you out the door and flipping tables, which I appreciated. If you ask them to speed up the service because you have somewhere to be, from personal knowledge they have the ability to do that.
Gasoline smell from garage below made it difficult to enjoy dinner Pasta overseasoned with pepper Other dinner fare /cocktails and service very good
Another small discrete gem. Not on a main street but well worth hunting down. Great ambience. I had the cold corn soup, lobster in linguine, and lemon chello mousse. All recommended and all superb.
Went for restaurant week. Food was just okay and the service was extremely slow. It was Friday night and not packed at all...still, we had to flag down the waiter for our next courses. Okay for a first visit, but probably won’t be back. It was good Chianti though.
Always a delight to dine at Aperto. Their homemade pasta is fantastic.
The waiter asked us if we wanted some drinks. We said that we wanted sparkling water and still water. We only realized at the end that it costed $7 for each. We wished that this could have been indicated earlier. Too bad...
Immaculate attention to every detail!
Aperto gets high marks! Exquisite!
The Salmon was perfectly prepared with a heavenly tarragon lemon sause!
The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Excellent grilled octopus, fish and the honey lavender Panna cota was delish!
Enjoyed an outstanding summer Italian seafood salad
Food was delicious . I had the pasta special and it was outstanding . My table mates enjoyed their dishes also .
Pleasent, place, good service, quiet private place
Had a great experience everyone was so helpful and accommodating. We came in with our 7 month twin grandchildren and they couldn’t do enough to make sure we were comfortable. Food was outstanding. I highly recommend this place for a great Italian meal.
Excellent service & superb food! Proximity to Hotel Lombardy is a plus for us. We'll certainly come back.
Working for many years in the 5 star restaurant and hotel business, along with being an editor for a travel and food magazine, I can honestly say that this is one of the worst restaurants for its price that I’ve ever dined it. The waitress was rude and left us for so long the greeter had to take our order. We had to remind them 4 times of our drink order. The pasta was over cooked and under seasoned. The chicken was passable. The bread was warm (highlight of the meal) but we had to request it. Nobody came to us to check on how our food was - I would have sent my pasta back. Understaffed, but as the restaurant was practically empty during graduation week and many conventions, it is clear to see why. Nobody bothered to say goodbye. Awful - don’t bother.
The food was not good - I would not come back here.
Aperto accommodated our need for a rather quick meal as we were on the way to a concert at the Kennedy Center. Service staff was terrific. However, I wish the restaurant would permit corkage.
Great Food! Great service! What a find!!
Visiting DC for vacation & heard there were many great restaurants in the city. Of all that we tried, this would be the only one I would come back to. The food was terrific. Had the special lobster linguine. Service was attentive without being overwhelming. I had read some reviews complaining about prices, but all the restaurants in DC are higher priced than elsewhere. Keep that in mind.
First time there, decided to go since no problem getting a table. Waiter who took our drink order, never returned. We complained and had the drinks complimentary and another waiter took care of our dinner. It was very pleasant. The pasta is excellent. The poor start and first impression put damper on evening. Not charging us for drinks definitely helped when we looked at bill.
