Italian

Socci is an urban Italian kitchen with a bar. The interior is set up as a modern version of Old World Italy. There is an open kitchen and outdoor seating along with a chef's tasting room. Socci serves excellent steaks, fresh pastas and has an extensive wine list. The atmosphere is refined yet casual, and casual business wear is recommended. It's quiet and relaxed environment make it an ideal place to relax with friends or colleagues. Socci's prices are a little on the high side as it is a fine dining restaurant, but given the portion sizes it definitely offers value for money.

                                                              I sat for more than 30 minutes after I was seated. Someone poured water in my class right as I sat down but no one stopped at my table after that. I tried to flag down several servers but no one would stop, finally someone did and they made it appear like throw was a major inconvenience to stop at my table. If I had another option for dinner in the area, I would have left. Not the service I/we are used to at every other Open Table restaurant we try.

                                                              I wasn’t impressed with the food. Ordered calimari, hardly any calimari on the plate, bunch of other stuff, just no calimari. Order seafood linguini, but it was way too spicy. Waitress stated chili pepper was on it. Chili pepper? Honestly could not eat it. Just wasn’t impress.

                                                              Menu had a wide variety and the prices were very reasonable for a restaurant in the lobby of a hotel. Service was quick and the noise level was surprizingly quiet - possibly because there were few walls for the voices to bounce off. The open area, high ceilings, and decor kept the ambiance quite modern and chique!!

The food was all great, and beautifully presented. The color changing lights are unusual, but the minimalist decor is nice and the atmosphere is relaxing. The cocktails were great - the gin drink with herbs was phenomenal.

He was accommodating and attentive, but not overly attentive. He made the dinner especially enjoyable. He remembered our requests and gauged the timing just right on delivering our food. We will definitely return to Socci the next time that we are in the area.

The salad arrived before the soup and at the same time my associates meal arrived. Mix up? Probably more training is needed for the Server.

                                                              I work in the area and have been there for lunch 3 or 4 times. The food is always delicious...and the service is always terrible. I don't know if it's the kitchen that is slow or the servers that are the problem, but I no longer think it's a fluke. This needs to be fixed.

First, the two gals we have had as servers were personable and added to the experience. Calamari, salads, salmon, other dishes friends had, all were excellent. Nutella waffle with cappuccino gelato a great finish.

The food was very good and well-resented. Service was attentive but not overbearing. I will definitely visit again when business takes me to this area.

                                                              High quality brunch buffet. Standard fare: scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, 2 types of sausage, bacon, grits, oatmeal bar, baked goods, fruit, smoked salmon, yogurt, and made-to-order omelets. Good food, but the selection seemed rather limited. Not crowded at all for a Saturday morning.

The menu offered a good range of dishes with the option of small serving sizes. The food was freshly prepared in the galley kitchen and the service was efficient. I was visiting from out of town and will definitely dine here again on my next visit to Crystal City.

Not sure how the meat in the pasta and meatballs dish was a little over cooked (burnt). The supervisor was great and provided a refund. I would visit once more. Things happen.

The service was pretty slow and there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. Don't waste your time here - too many better restaurants to enjoy in the area.

Within a new hotel so it is a very spacious open design where you can see the lobby, outside, as well as the kitchen. Service was pretty good and the server was attentive. The food was excellent. I ordered the rockfish sandwich and it was probably one of the best fish sandwiches I have ever had. Fish perfectly seasoned and cooked. It came with house made chips which were very good. Will definitely be back.

I will DEFINITELY return.

                                                              We just happened to buy a Gilt City deal for Socci, but we weren't expecting too much from it - just a regular night out. Khai was a knowledgable and nice server who gave us some great recommendations. The shrimp & polenta and the lobster lasagna were really good! I'd go back.

Socci is very flexible and let us substitute a substantial side salad or fries for the potato chips. Socci has very enticing elegant modern interior design. The waitress as very responsive and brought a lavish piece of cake for our honored Birthday guest with toppings.

                                                              My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. I would not recommend going here to celebrate a special occasion. The server we had was not very knowledgeable about the menu and did not seem to have the tact to take care of guests celebrating a special occasion. The manager, who it seemed almost sensing that the server was not being helpful, came over to the table and did extend a warm greeting. When the manager was over at the table, the service was great. When the server was over, it was fair at best. The food was very mixed. Besides taking forever for anything to actually be in front of me to eat or drink, some of the food was very good, but there was some misses. I wanted to like this place more.

                                                              We were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the food at Socci, as frankly, this is just one of dozens of hotels in Crystal City. We asked for, and received, a table in a corner so that we could have a leisurely meal and chat without shouting. Our server was enthusiastic, but not very experienced with timing things. She interrupted our conversation at least three times to ask if we liked the food. Had we been seated in the main area of the restaurant, it is unlikely we would have been able to have a conversation; part of that is because the restaurant is in the lobby, and part of it is because the bar is right there, too. Would I eat here again. Yes! But only if I were staying in that hotel.

                                                              Socci is a very nice hotel restaurant. The menu had a number of interesting options, including local (Chesapeake Bay) options.The food is better than what I'd expect for a hotel like the Renaissance Arlington Capital View, and there are few, if any, better options that are within walking distance and open in the evening. It is not cheap, but its also not at the high end of restaurant dining. The pricing seems appropriate to the quality of the food.
