Italian | Alexandria, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Everything was great. Serviced was timed correctly for the occasion. From when the wine was brought, to appetizers and entrees, followed by desert. Everything was great for the occasion because we were not in a rush and wanted to enjoy ourselves so being rushed was never a feeling we got. The only thing that was a little off was the Carbonara I ordered. It was a little on the salty side. Not sure if the cook/recipe acknowledges that ham is already a fairly salty meat and not sure if salt was added on the sauce and egg as it was being cooked. Other than that everything was terrific, as well as the atmosphere. I’ll definitely be returning again. One thing which I liked seeing in for the location it was at was the fact that the server placed items on the table and cleared the table all in accordance to proper table etiquette, which I don’t personally care in most cases but in this one it gave a nice touch to our dinner experience and it was noted. Now the tiramisu was fantastic. Tiramisu is not my desert of choice but my wife is picky when it comes to certain dishes and she loved it. Thank you for the great night. More

Jonathan was a terrific waiter. He brought our margaritas right away, explained the menu and the special taco of the day. We were served quickly. The fried avocado, cauliflower tempura, and carne assada (special taco) were all delicious! The margarita was average, nothing special about it but adequate. Our party of 5 enjoyed the variety on the menu and appreciated being placed slightly away from the bar so we could hear our conversation. More

I've been wanting to try this restaurant for some time and finally went to lunch there with a friend. When I booked through Open Table two days ahead, the information from Open Table stated that there were only 3 reservations left for the time frame near my booking time (11:30-noon) so I got the impression that this must be a very busy and popular restaurant. When I arrived, there were only two other people in the entire restaurant. Very surprised given the information from Open Table. I mentioned this to the staff--apparently it was not the first time that OT has provided erroneous information. It did get busier after a while, but it appears to draw on a clentelle of local older seniors (there are retirement homes nearby) for lunch. Service was good, attentive and friendly. I ordered a chopped liver sandwhich but what I got was a thick pressed liver (liverwurst) which was disappointing and not what I expected. The menu was fairly small and did not appeal much to me, personally. I will probably not go back. More
