Very quaint and tucked away. I believe him to be the owner, circulated the dining room while we ate. I would recommend.

The food was not worth the price. I felt that the portions were small for the price paid. The vegetables were cold but with the slow and impersonal service, we did not send them back. The main dishes were tasty, but not worth the price.

The organization seemed a little chaotic; No one was ready to valet the car, the bartender was silent and somehow I missed the prices of the entrees, when looking online. Only three shrimp for $31

We went to LaPerla after a show at the Kennedy center. We has a reservation, and were taken to our table right away, given menus, and our drink order was taken. Within 5 minutes the owner /head chef came to our table and introduced himself to us!. We had 3 generations of family, everyone ordered something different, and was very satisfied with their meals. The pastas were all very fresh, the veal was tender an flavorful, and the senior generation was very glad that the portions were not huge ( who are also New Yorkers who eat out in NYC all the time).
The staff were wonderful and attentive, by the end of the meal were were deciding what we would have next time we came.
Also, the restaurant is absolutely beautiful.
