Interesting restaurant that seems stuck in the early '60s. Food is average, portions are large, staff is friendly and courteous. Separate bar area caters to karaoke and lounge music.

Stopped for dinner. Seated quickly ... then waited a long time for service. Got a basket of bread and orders taken ... then waited a LONG time for food. Waiter said they were busy. Food was like you would get in a box and microwave yourself ... not special at all. Food was too salty for our tastes, too. We'll... More

This restaurant is top notch! The gnocchi in white sauce is the best gnocchi I have ever had. Awesome service. Great classic Italian restaurant environment. Can't pass up that Italian bread and whipped butter. Fantastic shrimp scampi. Loved the fettuccine alfredo. A gem in a sea of restaurants. A must try! You will keep going back!

Ouch. I'm not sure why this outdated establishment is still hanging around. The flavorless food and unfriendly service were both far below today's expectations, and the decor took me back to 1985. You can do much better elsewhere.

As an aside this restaurant was mentioned by Tom Clancy in "The Hunt... More

Has that old Italian, mom and pop look; however, the quality of food, service and value does not live up to the hype. I get the feeling the management/ownership may have changed hands. Let me put it to you this way - I ordered linguine with clams...I got a cluster of thin, angelhair-like noodles in clam sauce that resembled a... More

On a tourist trip to D.C. and stopped here for an early dinner with our two kids. We had an excellent experience. The kids meal pizzas were huge and super tasty, and our pasta dishes were tasty and fairly authentic. Service was prompt and agreeable, and the wine list long and varied. The portions were ample, and the prices not... More

Wife and I ate at Pistones last night. It was wonderful, delicious and reasonably priced. I had spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti and meatballs in appetizer size, wife had grilled chicken breast in a wine sauce. Service was excellent and portions were generous. Highly recommended!
