Made reservations for my boyfriends birthday and it was a great dinner. The staff were very friendly and provided great service. The restaurant itself was very cozy and clean. The food was AMAZINGGG. Would 100% recommend for a nice date.
Good food, nice service. Everyone was wearing masks and it felt safe and comfortable.
Very good crab ravioli and great fresh bread. Food comes out fast as well
We had reservations and stood at the hostess area for 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged us...even as employees passed by us several times. Did not even look at us.
The food was okay, a bit bland. Ambience was not great, too brightly lit. No tablecloths.
The meal was too expensive for this sort of overall experience.
Authentic Italian cuisine in Shaw. Friendly and attentive service.
Tortino was amazing! We modified our reservation just a few hours before our original time and they were extremely understanding and accommodating. We ate indoors, which is of course not ideal during COVID, however, the tables were spaced appropriately our waiters wore masks and kept a respectable distance. We didn't do apps or dessert but all of our main courses were absolutely delicious. The service was quick as well. Definitely will be coming back!
I had a great experience at Tortino, they have an extensive menu, friendly service, delicious Italian comfort food, and attractive presentation. Their staff were helpful in bringing a high chair for my toddler daughter and maintaining a distance while talking to us. Everything we ordered was good and service was quick.
COVID-specific note: they only have 4 outdoor tables and don't take reservations for them, so be aware if you aren't comfortable eating indoors. The patio space is very pleasant and we arrived around 6pm on Saturday on an evening with lovely weather and were the first party seated outdoors, so if you come on the earlier side, you should be fine.
Anthony did a great job with his recommendations and service, food was excellent. If we lived in DC, this would be a weekly meal for us.
Came across Tortino by happenstance — just looking for a casual dinner in the area. This place blew us away. Incredible food, great service, conveniently located. We’ll be back — thanks for turning a regular Sunday night into an unforgettable meal.
With all of the restrictions due to corona, the experience is phenomenal. Staff is still ingratiating and social. The kitchen continues to turn out amazing food (with daily specials!). I was in DC for only one night and this was the place I needed to visit. Absolutely worth every moment!
Very accommodating place, tasty food and friendly staff. They had specials despite the virus. They made excellent rye Manhattan.
Food was delicious. Loved the experience and will be back!
The food was spectacular. The seasoning was subtle and well blended and not overdone! I had forgotten how good the food at this restaurant really is. The chef came out and talked to us and was very sweet. We hadn't been back to this restaurant in a while but I'm really glad we did.
The tri-colored salad is a perfect blend of textures, flavors and colors. The dressing was a perfect complement to the greens mix without overpowering their flavor.
The fish special came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The mashed potatoes were infused with fresh tomato, butter and cheese and were absolutely delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection offset with a mango caper light sauce and the vegetables were crisp with subtle herb flavorings through out.
I tend to be a bit picky when it comes to white wines and the waiter suggested a perfect wine to accompany my dinner.
A great meal with wonderful staff
The pasta dishes were incredible and the appetizer Beef Carpaccio was perfect.
So good! Great service, lots of distance between tables, amazing food
The food was AMAZING!! I’ll definitely be back
Fantastic waiter and service. tasty and tender lamb shank .
Food was amazing as well as the service. Thank you so much for making our 40th anniversary dinner a night to remember!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience at Tortino's for her birthday. We received some world renowned treatment and it really goes to show how much the employees and managers care for their customers and the restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious! I'd recommend the seafood pasta and the wine pairings were right on point. 10 out of 10 would recommend and I give my compliments to the chef, staff and everyone involved.
First time we’ve eaten at a DC restaurant since Covid-19. We sat at a table outside and had a great meal. We were the only ones in the restaurant as far as we could tell. I hope Tortino can remain the great restaurant that we have known and loved!
Outstanding. All good.
Fantastic restaurant. Discovered this place three years ago while in DC for work. Now it has become a mainstay any time I am in the DC area.
Excellent pastas and appetizers. Service was unobtrusive and competent. Low-key and casual ambience. Definitely recommend!
Great meal, service and atmosphere. Thank you. We will definitely be back!
Great authentic food with lots of flavour.
Price was good.
Problem was that it’s very noisy.
Food was delicious - service just right and the place is comfortable - great spot for a delicious dinner!
The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding!
Wow. We loved this restaurant.
My wife and I and another couple were in DC for a conference. We found Tortino when searching for a restaurant near our hotel. Everything was so good.
The Burrata with roasted red peppers appetizer was a perfect combination. The bolognese was the best I've ever had and I often order this dish.
My wife had the short rib risotto. Terrific flavor, excellent comfort food. I couldn't stop "helping her" finish her meal (and mine).
Thank you Chef!!!
Always a delightful experience. Warm, inviting atmosphere. Terrific food quality. Solid service. Never disappointed.
Just great food. A cozy little restaurant serving really good Italian food with good service, good vibe.
It was a nice meal, my guy had ravioli and i had gnocchis both were very good. Our kids sister was very good. It was as moderately priced. I would definitely go back
Lovely as usual. Wait staff greeted me with pleasant enthusiasm. Grilled scallops were superb and the steak perfection! Service warm, friendly and efficient. I felt as if I was treated as their favorite auntie!
This was my first experience with this restaurant. While it was previously unknown to me, it is well known in the neighborhood and every table was filled. The menu is diverse enough for everyone to be able to find something they like, regardless of dietary preferences. The food was excellent. The presentation was inviting and compelling. The service was attentive. The wine list was well matched to the menu. The prices were reasonable.
I would recommend Tortino without hesitation and I look forward to returning again in the near future. This was a wonderful experience.
Read some great reviews...however they over cooked my dinner
This is our Italian go-to night out restuarant, having migrated from the delicious but overpriced Osteria Morini. The ravioli always amazes. This time it was braised lamb - outrageously delicious. Scallop appetizer was perfectly seared. I love that this feels like a real place, not an overly polished restaurant group.
A phenomenal date night!
Service was great and prompt. Food was amazing!
Wonderful location for delicious Italian with a cozy ambiance. Perfect date night spot.
Great food, great service, and great drinks as always!!!!
