I ate here twice on a recent business trip to DC, once with colleagues and once by myself. With associates I had lunch: we all had salads and appetizers. Salads were inventive, appetizers (oysters) yummy. For dinner I had black pepper fettucine carbonara, house-made pasta....More

Had a delicious dinner in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Good wine list, good selection of dishes, including dishes to satisfy the vegetarians and meat-lovers in our group. They do take reservations.
