  • John SGreat place. Great steak. Great wine. This is the best place in town.

  • Lindsay CStart with the pasta and/or salad sampler. And for the main, balsamic steak or any one of the specials (they're always good).

    55555 by Lindsay C


  • Ishaan BLove their burrata. Great vegetarian pasta dishes.

    55555 by Ishaan B


  • Brenna NThe corkscrew linguini with ragu was awesome, smaller plates but definitely filling. All the pasta dishes are vegetarian.

    55555 by Brenna N


  • Zak A.Five course pasta tasting, all day

    55555 by Zak A.


  • Arkady EI can't just believe that this place named itself "an Italian restaurant". I've never had such bad experience. Risotto was overboiled. Sauce was from the cheap can. Shame on you, guys.

  • Matt B.Great for dates. We had burrata, an arugula and pear salad, rigatoni with spicy tomato sauce and a filet mignon with a blueberry balsamic reduction. The steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious.

    55555 by Matt B.


  • laurenJust as good as the one in Florence. Pumpkin pasta & blueberry steak for the win.

    55555 by lauren


  • Terri MThis is the best Italian food I've ever had! The Strozzapreti al Pomodoro is incredible. Also the Cannelloni Mascarpone e Funghi is amazing.

    55555 by Terri M


  • Terri MThe atmosphere is cozy and authentic. The staff were all excellent and accommodating - especially Ido:-).

    55555 by Terri M


  • Allison JWanted to love this place so much more than I did! Service was subpar, and pastas were good but not great (and not, unfortunately, as good as the motherland). Best part: rosemary cocktail & cheesecake

    55555 by Allison J


  • Doris T.Three-course lunch for $20? Yes.

    55555 by Doris T.


  • Sam P.Don't get the chef sampler, basically Italian tapas.

    55555 by Sam P.


  • Liz Caselli-MechaelTheir pasta cream sauces are amazing

    55555 by Liz Caselli-Mechael


  • Hilary N.Have to admit we didn't get pasta, but wasn't super impressed

    33333 by Hilary N.


  • SamI lived in Italy for a few years, and I can tell you - the food here is legit. You'll have trouble deciding... so I recommend the pasta sampler; it's a great way to taste a variety of their dishes!

    55555 by Sam


  • VenuGet the five pasta sampler.

    33333 by Venu


  • Daniel S.The pasta sampler is the best. I love this place.

    55555 by Daniel S.


  • Erin S.We accidentally found this place while on vacation, and are so glad we did! The food was absolutely amazing. I got the bowtie pasta with garlic and butternut squash... it was to die for.

    55555 by Erin S.


  • Aaron CGet the chocolate cake for desert and blueberry steak. It's heaven

    55555 by Aaron C


  • Jeremy SFlourless chocolate cake is the dessert move

    55555 by Jeremy S

    55555 by Sophia A.

  • Becca A.Been to the one in Florence, Italy and this one is exactly the same...absolutely fantastic. I recommend the sampler plates for pasta or steak. Can't say enough wonderful things about this place!

    55555 by Becca A.


  • Jenna L.Absolute favorite restaurant in all of DC (and Baltimore, too!). Get the pasta sampler or the zucce, but save room for the best part - balsamic steak! Also great wine list!

    55555 by Jenna L.


  • Ara G.The most overrated un-Italian Italian restaurant on the Hill. From retail-bought pasta to frozen meat & lack of seafood to mediocre service & desserts; the issues are too numerous to forgive...

    33333 by Ara G.


  • Marisa P.If you're not getting the balsamic beef you're out of your mind! The food here helps me forget momentarily that I'm not in Italy!

    55555 by Marisa P.


  • Kevin C.Food = amazing. Service =fantastic. My party of 3 shared some pasta dishes and the blueberry steak. All were among the best things I've eaten in DC. Special thanx to Sajmir for taking good care of us!

    55555 by Kevin C.

    55555 by Mike W.


  • Amy H.Having a great little Prosecco and Barolo with my wife:)

    55555 by Amy H.


  • Greg R.Steak should not be sweet. Stick two the peppercorn sauce.

    33333 by Greg R.


  • Bitches Who B.Bitches Say B. The blood orange mimosas were delicious, as were the frittatas. Service is impeccable and ambiance is pleasant. But, go for dinner, and don’t bother with brunch.

    55555 by Bitches Who B.


  • Katie B.Gnocchi platter is the best!

    55555 by Katie B.


  • Gina G.Delicious, had bureaus and pasta al vongole! Small portions, especially the pasta. If you're hungry order a panini.

    55555 by Gina G.


  • Allie A.The egg plant panini and spinach frittata were exceptional.

    55555 by Allie A.


  • Nick S.Go for the pasta sampler and the tiramisu, which are both awesome. The veal with porcini mushrooms was lackluster.

    55555 by Nick S.


  • Lory I.Gorgonzola gnocchi, balsamic and blueberry steaks, the porterhouse (medium rare), clam pasta, flourless chocolate cake, ricotta spinach balls (any of them!). I really suggest starting with the sampler

    55555 by Lory I.


  • Tammy G.Start with the burrata then share the pasta sampler...

    55555 by Tammy G.


  • Maria Helena C.The burrata may bring tears of joy.

    55555 by Maria Helena C.

  • Lacy B.The food here is delicious - personal favorite is the Gorgonzola gnocchi!

    55555 by Lacy B.


  • Emily Y.OMG...the cheesecake is the best I've ever had!!!!

    55555 by Emily Y.


  • Chelsea D.The pasta sampler is a must get. If you are deciding between the balsamic and the blueberry steak go with the balsamic. Trust me.

    55555 by Chelsea D.


  • FoodspottingTry the Rigatoni Melanzana and spot it on Foodspotting!

    55555 by Foodspotting

  • Becky C.The pasta and steak samplers are perfect to share with a friend.. The pastas are delicious and filling, and all 3 steaks sampled were cooked PERFECTLY if you like medium rare.. Soo juicy & tender!

    55555 by Becky C.


  • AskMenSteak & pasta: When you think about it, the combo is not too far removed from that beloved American institution of steak & potatoes. The spot is located right across the street from the Eastern Market

    55555 by AskMen

    55555 by John T.


  • Dan K.The filet mignon with balsamic vinegar is fantastic
