DC Pasta Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been to this restaurant a few times and overall had good experiences. Unfortunately, this visit was less than desirable as there was a long black hair in my wife’s food. When I asked the manager to remove the plate he didn’t offer an apology or a new dish to replace her meal. I realize things happen but I thought this was handled poorly.
Great overall dining experience. The menu was creative and well planned out. Options o’plenty.
Service was effective and efficient. Manager was attentive and appeared genuine without being cheesy or disruptive. Our server was knowledgeable and offered his opinion in a very helpful way.
Our meals were delicious.
Would definitely return to this establishment.
We went for Valentine's Day, at 7:30pm. The restaurant was pretty full when we arrived but we had a reservation and were sat right away, the rush for the night started to clear out at the same time. The service really wasn't good. We ordered wine, an iced tea and an appetizer. The server brought the wine and that was the last we saw of him. A female server approached our table and while later and asked to take our order. We inquired about the iced tea and the appetizer - an order for neither had been placed for us by the first server. We finally got our appetizer - Fritto di Mar (calamari and shrimp) with red pepper coulis. It was a really small serving. There were just a couple tiny shrimp mixed in. The calamari was too chewy and wasn't seasoned. And I don't know what they think red pepper coulis is, but this sauce wasn't it - mayo with spices, that's not a coulis.
When the appetizer came, we ordered our dinner, starting with 2 salads. We finished the appetizer and sat and sat waiting for the salads. We asked about them and were told they were being made. I then also asked for bread at that point. Every other table had bread but we were offered none. Salads were fine. Again, kind of on the smaller side. For dinner we had linguine carbonara and chicken parmesan. They were decent. Nothing terribly impressive. The pasta was cooked nicely, al dente. The carbonara didn't come with any meat other than the pancetta, you could add it for an upcharge and I regret not adding chicken. It would have been nice to receive a spoon with the carbonara dish, but that was something I had to request after the fact.
The food was fine and priced well enough that maybe I'd go back, if I was nearby and needed dinner. I wouldn't rush back or recommend it specificically.
The food was sub par. My husbands cavatelli was doughy and gummy. The sauce lacked flavor. The spicy sausage wasn’t even spicy. My carbonara was served in a soup like sauce. It was not classic Italian carbonara at all. It wasn’t very busy at the time so I am not sure what the issue was. Our server was very attentive. At least the wine was good.
Always one of my favorite pasta restaurants. However last night the service was extremely slow and inattentive. The pasta was dry and lacked flavor. Chicken picatta was dry and lackluster. Definitely off its game. Seemed to be short servers and the cooks were second string. Hopefully just a bad night. One more night like this and it won't be one of my favorites any longer.
Limited Menu choices. If you order pasta, get the large portion because the small portion is a child's size. Even the large, I had expected to take some home, was not generous. Friend ordered sm ravoli and got 3 . Food was nothing exceptional. The place was half empty so we did not need our reservations. Service was good. But everything was ala carte except the dinner choices of which there was only 6 options. Would not dine there again, too many other Italian places in the area that give you more value for your dollar and taste better.
Pasta bolognese and cavatelli with spicy sausage were outstanding; the full serving was plenty for any appetite. Meatball was delicious and the wines by the glass were very good also. The vegetarian pasta ragu lacked flavor and there was too much eggplant. Atmosphere was loud for a weeknight.
Downside was the mediocre service; the waiter was not familiar with the ingredients or flavor profile of some of the dishes. He read directly from one of the guest's menus which was of no help at all. Service was slow to start with and not as attentive as the better restaurants we've been too.
We wanted to relax and enjoy the evening as there was no rush. However looks like the waiter was in a big hurry. Barely full. We wanted to order apps and wine- never heard we can't just do that before. We had to order even entrees. He insisted that we make that choice as the kitchen needs courses. 12 guests in your restaurant and your kitchen can't handle that amount of business ??? So bizzare. Ended up ordering the food. The meal was tasty , half way into the apps the entrees arrive - where did your urgency of coursing a meal go ? Felt so rushed. Not sure if I would recommend or return.
food was outstanding,the hot pepper sausage was hot and excellent and the pasta dishes were
terrific. however I was a little disappointed that there were no veal dishes. The calamari was very light and enjoyed by all. The four of us all had different dishes and they all were served pipping hot and timely .
