Tucked away in great neighborhood. Good menu selection, with pricing very fair for the quality and proportions. Service was very good with a good interchange among staff. Excellent recommendation from wine list. We shall return!

We went on the first winter snow for DC. The ambiance, was excellent, the service attentive, and the food delicious. The mushroom soup and crab ravioli is highly recommended. We would recommend for a quiet evening with great food.

We love Tortino and have never been disappointed. We first came here about 5 years ago and then we moved away from the city. We moved back a few months ago but were just able to eat there again last week. The food was great as usual. Can’t wait to head back.

This little off the beaten track Italian rest is a gem. Food is consistently top shelf. Parking is awful in the area, but you are rewarded by sumptuous risotto, pasta, and almost any entree. Been at least five times. Never disappoints.

I've dined here several times, and each time I was treated to a delicious pasta dish. Not a lot of good Italian in DC, but this is a very solid option.

We picked this restaurant as it was just around the corner from our hotel; we'd been travelling all day. I saw this restaurant had good reviews. We were welcomed with a smile. The server gave us the specials; I had a Buffalo Mozzarella, Tomato with a Cucumber sauce appetizer, my Sister and Mum both had the Carpaccio; which was delicious. For my entree I had Papadelle with Lamb Ragu, I can safely say, one of the best Pasta dishes I've ever had. We had a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, which was excellent, maybe a little pricey. Overall great food, would definitely go back, if ever I'm in DC.

Really excellent restaurant. The Caprese type appetizer made with Burrata cheese was superb. The eggplant appetizer was also great. Thin slices of eggplant with a tomato sauce. The pan seared scallops were perfectly cooked over a cauliflower puree. Finally, the grilled marinated Portobello mushrooms were al dente with a balsamic drip. The spinach Tagliatelle with chicken was just right. Finally, the Roasted Veal Tenderloin was served medium rare as requested served over au gratin potatoes with a Black Truffle reduction. The couple next to us raved about the grilled pork chops. So don't go anywhere else before Tortino. By the way, very reasonably priced.

Great waiter, great ambiance, delicious food. Our orders included the porcini-infused pappardelle, veal, scallops appetizer, portobello mushroom appetizer among other dishes. At dessert, the salted caramel gelato was to die for. We loved that the restaurant was full and bustling. The noise level wasn't too loud or too quiet. Everything was so good, highly recommend this place!

Not sure why this place wasn't brimming over when we got there. Small out of the way spot, but the food blew us away. Each course was better than the last. Wine list is small but adequate. Overall, a great place for a great meal.

I actually was not able to attend due to a migraine, but my friend decided to go anyway. This was probably his 10th visit, and as always was delighted with the meal and the service. At the end of the meal the waiter brought out the dessert with a candle per the reservation request. My friend had a good laugh as other patrons wondered about him ordering his own birthday dessert. He had a very enjoyable evening , as usual!!
