while food and ambiance were good, was surprised that menu and price were fixed and not allowed to order food or drinks from the online menu for happy hour. Other patrons left as a result. It would be best if they let customers know ahead that the menu and price are fixed to avoid an awkward situation. More

I loved the Italian Food Walking Tour in Dupont Circle. Dave was very knowledgeable about the food, restaurants, and the area architecture. The food at each restaurant was simple and the courses complimented each other. The wild mushroom risotto first course and lasagna were my favorite courses. We had a nice variety of old established restaurants and one newer trendier place on the tour. I would definitely go back to each of them. It was a filling afternoon, but walking a few blocks between locations helped to burn off some of the calories! Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a leisurely afternoon of eating and meeting new people. More
