After a long day of seeing all the sights in Washington, DC, I had a hankering for some pasta, but was not looking forward to showering, get dressed up for a fancy Italian meal. When I came across this place, I was hoping I hit...More

There is a wealth of interesting-looking salads at Bruscato's, but it appears that they are slated for the lunch crowd. I was there at dinner, and I wanted to try a variety of pasta, and ordered the three-part dish. I'm not that fancy, but getting...More

Lunch in our neighborhood is a bit of mad rush, but I rarely have to wait for Bruscato's freshly made sandwiches and salads. Lunch is civilized again.

Average deli fare here. Ordered the tomato, basil and mozzarella appetizer ($6.99) and got 3 servings that consisted of one very thinly sliced tomato cut in half, mozzarella and a basil leaf on a bed of shredded lettuce. Totally not worth it. Subs were okay...More

This is not really a restaurant, more of a deli but you can sit at a few places....the sandwiches are made on authentic Italian bread, but why pay $7 for 2 slices of cold cuts on a nice roll? The soups are not too involved,...More

This great italian deli offers sandwiches, panini, salads, pizza, and daily specials. You can have a hearty lunch for $10...don't know who wrote the profile and said 20. One of the hole-in-the wall gems amidst Old Town's overpriced white linen restaurants. Terrific food.
