    The location was a bit removed from our Capitol Hill hotel location, but it was worth the drive. The food was amazing and I would definitely go back.

    My Ragu was delicious, the restaurant reminded me of the many trattoria’s in Florence and the food felt very authentic. Staff was great and super nice. Will for sure come again. I left my card at the restaurant and they were able to call me immediately and I was able to turn around and grab my card. I really appreciated that.

    Absolutely love Via Ghibellina! Everything was perfect, beginning to end. Their pasta was amazing as always, my boyfriend has a gluten allergy so he had gluten free pasta, and you could not tell the difference. We had their filet mignon with the balsamic reduction and a blueberry reduction, and it was the best steak ever. The steak was cooked to perfection, we could have cut it with a butter knife. Every meal we have had at Via Ghibellina has been great, we will definitely be back.

    Finally tried this little gem off the beaten path in Ivy City and so happy we did. We split an appetizer (burrata with grilled peaches and honey over toasted bread) and a pizza (prosciutto) and both were excellent. We sat at the bar and the bartender was a total pro--attentive and knowledgeable about the food and drink menu--and more than willing to provide a sample of beer or wine. Definitely will be back!

    We enjoyed our meal and our service at this place. The portions were great. But our wine was served warmer than room temperature and the overall temperature in the restaurant was way warmer than it was outside with the breeze. We had to drink our drinks fast and burned through 4 full glasses of water each. We think it would’ve been more enjoyable had there been cooler air.

    Unfortunately, this was the most disappointing meal I’ve had in dc since moving here. The Cacio e Pepe was basically inedible… did the Romano spoil? The beef Ragu was missing any sort of sauce. Hamburger helper dumped on pasta. The wait staff was more interested in talking amongst themselves rather than taking care of the guests.

    This little true Italian gem serves the best Italian food I’ve had since moving to the DC area years ago. The cocktails are delicious, staff are attentive, friendly, and genuine, and the experience is all-around fantastic. I cannot wait to return and try the pappardelle and the affogato!

    Everything was delicious! We had the special burrata with grapefruit, which was amazing. The cacio e Pepe was just the right amount of cheesy and peppery. When we asked what kind of wine would go best, the server walked us through what we liked and were looking for & then recommended ones. I would definitely go back again when I’m in the area!

    First time dining in, third time ordering from them. As always truely excellent food, slightly pricier but we'll worth it. Lamb has always been absolutely perfect, and their vegetarian dishes (including risotto cooked perfectly) are stand out as well. Their fresh pasta is always perfectly executed and to round it off, birthday dessert for my Father was customized for him. 10/10 on the resuarant, well worth driving there.
