We visited three times over the past year, and each time someone got served a disappointing dish. This time, the Risotto was excellent, the Cioppino (fish stew) had a strange flavor and could not be finished (all three of us tasted it), and the panzotti lacked flavor. We were asked how we liked the food and gave honest feedback. 5... More

This is a very good Italian place that has a very good lunch special. They offer a good selection of pizza and pasta and the service is quick. The ambience is good, very quiet and the decoration is very chick

We went to Bibiana while in DC for Thanksgiving for their Thanksgiving prix fixe menu and had a wonderful low-key evening and a delicious meal. We were specifically looking to get away from the underwhelming Thanksgiving menus offered at most restaurants and the overpriced traditional Thanksgiving buffets at the "fancy" hotels. Bibiana offered a delicious and varied menu for the... More

Our office party was last night and we had a traditional family-style italian dinner with 13 courses plus desert! Each course was creative and delicious. The pasta was fresh and pefectly cooked. We particularly enjoyed the squash filled ravioli and excellent wines suggested by John.

Unlike other places in the city that seem to forget the small details, this place doesn't miss a beat. The food is tasty and the wine list very impressive.

We were downtown for a show and decided to walk-in to this restaurant without reservation. The waitress was very pleasant and took time to explained in details the menu as well as the night specials. We ordered the duo pasta and we had rarely tasted such good pasta even in Italy. The portions were just right. I will go back... More

The personnel of this Italian restaurant in central Washington DC is nice and professional. The general atmosphere is very welcoming and sophisticated. Still, out of four dishes I ordered, I only liked one: the insalata di palate dolci was surprisingly enjoyable. The carciofi alla romana, though, the panzototi di zucca and the carrot cake were all either tasteless or not... More

At $38 for a three course dinner with a choice of three plates per course, it can't be beat. The waiter tried to push the truffle option a little too hard. Other than that. One never goes wrong at any of the Knightsbridge restaurants. Always consistent and on point.

What a mistake. Close to the Marriott and wanted Italian. Service, our waitress was nice, but really slow. They were not busy on this Friday evening and now I know why. They apologized for the delay but it wasn't only us it was every other table. All eight or so of them. I'm sure she didn't hear my order because... More

I went here when on a business trip in DC. I chose it because it looked quiet and somewhat upscale. I ordered a pasta dish (the one with clams). For the price, it was disappointing and too salty. I felt that it lacked any real flavour. I ordered the carrot cake for dessert. It was also just average. The wine... More
