Classic Tuscan at it's best. Everything was amazing!

This service and experience is more about up-selling from the moment we walked in the door and did not feel genuine. We were rushed through the entire dinner and the staff interrupted our conversations frequently to bus the table and move our dinner along. Very disappointed we chose this restaurant, based on the reviews we read, over all the other excellent places in DC.

The restaurant is always consistently very good. Fresh pasta, fresh sauces and really great pairing of wines are some of many features of this jewel in the DC crown. Highly recommended and wonderful staff!

An enjoyable night and wonderful service except that they threw away my take-home which was not cool. The food was good but not excellent.

Great food. The food took forever to come out, but I think that was due to it being Valentines day.

Very disapointing diner. Ok it was Valentine’s Day which is probably not the best time to eat out since Resteraunt’s are busy but this was a bust. Mushroom soup had to be returned as it was basically thin vegetable consomee and not a good one, followed by a lobster rissoto with specs of lobster which was ok but lacking the principal ingredient followed by a lamb chop and rib dinner which had to be returned as way over cooked. The replacement was great but 2 out of 4 courses no good at first is a record. My date had the pasta vongole which consisted of a handful of clams and the rest canned. A very poor showing for this once great Resteraunt.

I was a little hesitant in making my reservation due to some of the unfavorable reviews. There were also a large number of more recent favorable reviews. Those are what sold me on making a reservation here for Valentine's Day. It was a great move! The atmosphere, service, appetizers, main course, and dessert were all wonderful and made for an outstanding evening. The price was a little high but certainly acceptable for a classy DC location. We can not wait to come back.

Went on Vday and service was great. We Arrived early before the crowds came in but service quality did not change one people arrived. Our waitress helped us lots with the menu and staff seemed genuine.

This remains one of our very favorite traditional restaurants in DC. The lunches are especially good value and the Italian food is really exceptional. We have always had fine service--the staff are always close by, but never intrusive.
This week we shared a wonderful mixed salad (certainly large enough for two), each had an entree (my strozzapreti was really delightful) and then shared the walnut cheesecake, which is the best dessert in DC, in our opinion.

Great service, delicious food. We were there on Valentine’s Day for lunch. It’s an old fashioned place that still feels fresh.

This was as close to being in Italy as I could ever imagine.
The food was superb and the service was outstanding.
First rate.

Second time for lunch at this restaurant. We shared appetizers of calamari and prosciutto and melon. Both were delicious as was the foccacia bread. Service was very pleasant and the maitre'd also checked on us a couple of times. As a slow eater, I especially appreciated that the busman was obviously trained not to clear plates until all have finished. Pretty restaurant. For entrees we had ricotta stuffed pasta with sage butter sauce and rigatoni with a long cooked beef ragu. Both were very tasty - I was only able to eat a few bites but my husband had my leftovers for dinner and enjoyed them. My only criticism was that the pasta was a little tough. I think the sauces are house made but maybe not the pasta? This is a classical Italian restaurant, you don't have to endure small plate decisions or weird combinations of ingredients. Refreshing in this day and age! I'd go again in a flash.
