This is our second visit to Flavio; we were there in January 2020. The food was very good, my husband had the Ricotta Gnocchi and I had the Salmon Ala Roma and we had the Meatball appetizer. The bread and bread dip are amazing; an Italian Pita kind of bread. It was a beautiful evening; we sat inside, social distanced from the next table, and the doors were open to the outside for a comfortable and relaxing evening. Our waiter was kind and courteous. Washington DC is one of our favorite cities to visit and I am sure we wil return to Flavio again in the future.

Very expensive and the food was mediocre. Sorry to say it because waiters are nice and the setting is lovely. Pizza was nothing special. Pasta did not taste fresh. Very expensive for what it was.

All the food was so fresh tasting. We got the bruschetta as an app and couldn't get over how fresh and sweet the tomatoes were. We got the gnocchi and fungi ravioli for entrees and both were absolutely delicious. The mushroom raviolis were light especially with the wine sauce rather than a heavy cream sauce and the gnocchi were so light and pillowy it was like eating a savory marshmallow. Overall excellent meal!

The food was just ok. The chicken parmigiana tasted like canned sauce. The lamb was good. It was very noisy because there was a table of 20 people too noisy and going around all over the place. I wouldn’t go back

Had plenty of seating outside but noisy commercial parking garage gate was noisy annoyance. The branzino fish with vegetables was very good but my partner found the pizza not well baked, soft on bottom. Wine pours are generous and service was good, except when it got too busy to keep up.

My experience was pretty good, also the food was great. We were seated pretty quickly and food came out quick as well. The service overall was good, although could have been a bit more speedy. However, it was a busy night so that might’ve had something to do with it. But overall great experience, would definitely recommend!

Very good food, only two other tables but we had to keep asking for the waitress and there was plenty of staff, she was sweet but we had to keep bothering other people to get her to our table. Also we ordered a glass of wine and wanted another and they were out of the house Chianti.my husband went to the bar to order me a drink-since no waitress and they did give that to me on the house for having to wait.

Great service. Very friendly wait staff. The food was delicious. Only issue we had was one of my guests ordered a pasta dish with chicken and they forgot the chicken. Another one of my guests order steak and the waitress never checked on how he wanted it cooked. The piece of meat came a bit rare but was still delicious.

Ridiculously expensive for the quality provided. It wasn't "spit it out" bad, but it absolutely wasn't 50$ for a piece of salmon good even though they priced it that way. Also so absurdly loud my throat still aches 3 days later from trying to have a conversation in that setting.
Service was hugely overwhelmed - I don't blame the servers but the restaurant should have had more staff on hand, it was obvious it was going to be a busy weekend.

Good food at a great location. They do play music through out the evening. So it's kind of weird eating with a loud dance soundtrack playing at the same time. Recommend for the food

Visiting the DC area, we chose this restaurant in Georgetown to celebrate our 39th Wedding Anniversary. We discovered that it was Georgetown Restaurant week. Flavio was a wonderful restaurant; food, service and ambiance. We ordered from the restaurant week menu that included appetizer, entree and dessert for a very reasonable price. Between my husband and myself, we had the eggplant and bruschetta appetizers, the Lobster Diavolo entree, each with a different sauce and cheesecake for dessert. The appetizers were absolutely delicious. We are not "spicy" eaters, so we asked the waiter about changing the sauce on our entrees. He told us we could have it prepared anyway we liked. I ordered a vodka sauce and my husband ordered an alfredo sauce. Both were amazing! The cheesecake was also delicious; we enjoyed it later in the evening at home. The "non-traditional" bread, sort of an Italian pita, and bread dip was also delicious. I had a glass of wine which was nice and, as in all restaurants, very expensive (this is not a complaint just stating a fact). Our waiter, his name escapes me, was so friendly, courteous and his attentiveness was just right. We left him a VERY generous tip! We will most likely return here on our next visit to DC.

I can't say enough positive things about Flavio! I came here with my WHOLE family after my graduation ceremony and they were incredibly attentive. They met us with so much excitement and were so gracious that I started to believe they were also a part of the family! There were many different items ordered by the family and everyone said the meal was absolutely delicious! The only critique is their wine is a little too overpriced but the ambiance, pleasantness of the staff, and overall quality of the restaurant really impressed me! I recommend everyone come to Flavio!

We were seated and handed only a special New year's Eve menu which was a fix priced dinner. This was not advertised on the website anywhere and took is by surprise. We then later saw others being handed both the regular menu and special menu so they had the option. We felt very taken advantage of by being led to believe we had to order off the special menu. The service was mediocre at best. Our food was delicious though.

Went for Dinner in Xmas day. Called several times, before our reservation, to see if they only had a pre-fix menu or would they also have their regular menu. Both times I was rushed off the phone after being told pre-fixed menu only. They had both menus. Our reservation was for 7:00. We were sat promptly at 7:00. The waiter was very nice. Told us that they were already out of several main courses and a dessert. The appetizers were really good, the main courses were okay. Six out of our 8 received our dinner, the last 2 didn’t get theirs until 15 minutes later. Very awkward.

There seems to be a problem in the kitchen. The chicken dishes were overcooked, the salmon was very good (but ever-so-lightly overdone)
I did asked for grilled ceaser and received...placed in front of me...just lettuce/not grilled.
And a seasoning on another dish was to be adjusted due to allergies and it was not, so that person had to wait while everyone was eating.
Getting a dessert as a gift because of the problems is nice, but did not solve the issue.
The wait staff was excellent and attentive. The problems we encountered seemed to be from the kitchen.
