vipOpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

Enjoyed the Manhattans made with rye and those fabulous Italian cherries. We had cauliflower sfumato for an appetizer, as well as a fresh mozzarella with rapini and red peppers. Both were excellent. Also enjoyed our entrees. We were less happy with the noise level, which made it hard to carry on a conversation. Tables were very close. It would probably be calmer on a less busy night.

This was our third visit (second time back), in town from Washington DC for theater in Manhattan and doubly worth the trip for (yet another) great dinner at Vini e Olii.

Average for the price point but food quality and noise were big negatives for us. Salad greens were past their ideal serving window and should not have been served. Had to pick around the ones with the most pronounced "squish". Bread was unremarkable -- disappointing for an Italian restaurant. Granted, we were there on a Sunday night over President's Day weekend... perhaps they offer a stronger showing during regularly scheduled programming.

Good authentic Piedmontese food. Usually NYC Italian restaurants tend to offer Southern Italian cuisine, this is something else although familiar Italian menu items are offered. A good system of serving house wine (quite good, by the way) is in place. You are served a bottle and a measurement is taken at the end of your dinner. Therefore, you pay only for what you had. Owners are on the floor all the time (in different roles), this makes tremendous difference.

I had a lovely dinner and bottle of wine with my son, who lives nearby, and my mother. The delicious yet unpretentious food and warm attitudes of the servers pleased three generations. Marinated sardines! Mmmm

Great neighborhood spot. Consistently good Italian food, lots of dishes you don’t find elsewhere. Service is always friendly. A real gem!

I had wanted to try this restaurant for a long time because of good reviews, and finally had a special occasion to celebrate with special friends who I knew would love this place. Our group definitely appreciated the Brooklyn scene here on a Saturday night, but we got the special table in the back corner, which tended to make it a little more private and less noisy. Loved the rough menus befitting the general atmosphere, which felt retro (apropos of the old pharmacy) and rustic, authentic. Drink menu featured many handmade drinks (enjoyed the homemade limoncello and the grapa after dinner). At the suggestion of our waiter (a Tuscan whose commentary greatly added to our enjoyment of the meal), we shared several apps - especially loved the onion soup gratinata, the cauliflower creation and the mozzarrella plate beautifully/deliciously garnished. Two of my guests had the branzino (they raved) and two the maltagliati, but the best was my TAGLIERINI AL TARTUFO. OMG. It was earthy, musty, delicious - actually served in an earthen brown bowl. All in all, a score.
