Really great food and service in a stylish, though loud, environment. RPM Italian does a nice job with outstanding handmade pastas and a large variety of appetizers, entrees, sides, and desserts that reflect modern Italian cooking while still respecting tradition.

Try it. You won't be disappointed. Though it's part of the large Lettuce Entertain You group, RPM manages to provide a personalized dining experience that reminiscent of a great local restaurant.

We loved RPM! The food was delicious and the service was great! The meatballs are absolutely the best I've ever had! The Italian salad was fantastic as was the side of cauliflower! I didn't care too much for the sausage stuffed olives because they were fried and I didn't expect that but if you don't mind fried, they were an interesting combination. My prosecco drink was also so delicious! My daughter had a goat cheesed type of ravioli/gnocchi type pasta and it was lovely. Loved everything about the restaurant and we will be back!

Exquisite dining experience. Service was excellent as our tight schedule was met without being hurried. All dishes were tasty.

One cannot go wrong with Shredded Brussels Sprouts salad & Truffles Garlic Bread. For dessert, don't forget the BomBoloni which came to the table HOT!!

Can't wait to revisit on my next D.C. visit.

At its beginning, I found the restaurant to be uneven. Over my last several visits, I have been impressed with the unfailing quality of the food, and the consistently, attentive service. Has become a “go to” for business lunches and before-game eats.

The service at RPM was fantastic - Najeen was so knowledgeable and accommodating with us, letting me taste various types of wine and describing various ingredients we weren't familiar with. The food was incredibly tasting, and the portions were perfect. The ambiance was very sleek and swanky and it made for a lovely night!

Let me just start my saying that our waiter Tyler, was outstanding. We felt as if he was a friend we had always known. What. Incredible. Service. For example two hours from asking, what we were celebrating -he remembered and brought us a candle lit dessert plate. The food was heaven for any foodie, seriously everything melted in your mouth. Outstanding food and such an incredible experience overall. We can not wait to come back! Thank you for making our Anniversary a memorable one that we will never forget!

I have been here several times and enjoyed it. A group of us came here upon my recommendation and I was disappointed. The server was not as attentive as others have been. I do not believe there were any specials at least I was not told of any. We had to ask for more drinks. Despite the restaurant being relatively empty we were squeezed in a booth near the door. Also the food was ok—Very salty and nothing to rave about.

We made reservations and were seated upon arrival. Our server, Daniel, was training but he did an amazing job. All the staff was very engaged with their tables. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming but classy and glamorous at the same. The food is always outstanding.

RPM is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. The food is amazing - I highly suggest the spicy crab dish, the garlic bread, and the broccolini. Matt - one of the head waiters - is amazing, he always remembers my mom and I and he makes the experience that much better. I highly recommend for both locals and visitors.

I took my husband here for his birthday with a small group of friends. It was our first time, and we loved it. Everything was amazing, and we had a great time. The service was great, and the food and drinks were all wonderful. It’s a bit on the pricey side for us, but perfect for a date or special occasion.
