Five of us found this gem after the Women's March in DC. We were VERY hungry. We loved EVERYTHING! sautéed mushrooms, fried zucchini, cheese pizza, fettuccine Alfredo, perhaps the best eggplant Parmesan ever, ravioli, pasta primavera. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. It felt very welcoming and friendly. One of the tastiest Italian restaurants I've ever visited.

Walking down the street and my brother and I both decided to follow our noses. So glad we did. Upon entering the restaurant we noticed the decor was dated. Thank god we weren't there to review their interior designer. The best restaurant at which I've eaten has sand floors, plastic chairs, graffiti on the walls, and a funky vibe (Corsairs,... More

Rude server. Older gentleman with mustache started my visit. In the middle of taking my order he turned around and walked away. When he returned l asked him if he knew what street a pharmacy was on. He said he didn't know. Instead of letting me know he would ask another employee he waved me off. Jay saw me getting... More

The food is priced reasonable and tastes really good. Made hot when ordered! I think the place needs to be updated as it looks outdated and the menu needs a revamping too! Try whatever you want, everything we had was delicious!

I had chicken piccata with spaghetti noodles on a large plate. It was as good as I have ever had. My wife had veal Marsala and it was good except one of the pieces was tough and gristled. I think a makeover and some decor would benefit business

This is an unpretentious, local Italian restaurant serving southern Italian dishes. All the pasta was home made. Food was very good as was the service. Everyone in our party had an enjoyable dinner.

I had prompt friendly service when dining there for dinner. The menu had several choices, including most of the "regular" Italian dishes. They served bread with dipping sauce. The bread was rustic and good, but came out cold. I had ravioli, which was average. The wine was decent, but nothing special. The food was cheaper than some of the other... More

It seems this restaurant has changed ownership since our last visit a couple of years ago. Gone are the linen tablecloths and the menu has been shortened. Gone off the menu is my favorite dinner entree, calamari fra diavolo. The eggplant parmesan is still delicious and my new favorite. Julian, our favorite waiter is still there as congenial as ever....

Huge plated works of Art is what you'll get here. Try the Seafood Manicotti and the home-made Garlic bread. Small but wise selection of house and specialty wines. Good room for a party or just your loved one in a quaint booth. Bar selection is expansive. No bells and whistles; what makes this place special, is the it feels like... More
