    A nice happy hour with a dog-friendly patio. Don’t miss the handmade pasta, like the spaghetti Bolognese or bacon risotto. Go on a Sunday or Tuesday and get a half-priced bottle of wine with dinner. Read more

    The Risotto Bacon is a hearty and delicious brunch option at Lavagna. It's prepared with house made bacon, arugula, butternut squash, mushrooms, and mascarpone.

    A jewel located in the heart of Washington's Eastern Market specializing in homemade EVERYTHING. Decent prices and great personnel, experience the lamb risotto is you have an opportunity to stop by.

    Had the opportunity to try several different things at the two year anniversary event- EVERYTHING was delicious! Bolognese was my personal fave but def trying the pesto next time. Love this place!

    Lounge on the tiny front patio, ideal for people-watching, with your bottomless mimosas and chicken and waffles. Tell Steve we sent you for the sun. Read more

    I am a vegan. I know that my diet is difficult for a lot of places but they were amazing! When they found out they tried so hard to accommodate me and I really appreciated the extra effort.

    Friendly, warm, intimate. Great for dates and small groups. Three course meal is a very budget friendly option. Food is fresh, and local (eastern market is just up the block). good drink selection

    Fantastic brunch spot. Indulgent, satisfying, and generous portions. I highly recommend ordering anything that includes their potatoes, which are crispy and delicious. Be sure to make reservations.

    The sort of place where you get a caesar salad & spaghetti with meatballs, knowing that the result will be anything but bland. A. List tip? There's a second blackboard for cocktails -- don't miss it. Read more

    I haven't gotten a meal here that I didn't like. Plus, the mimosas are bottomless for just $12--what else could you ask for at 11am on a Saturday?

    For $20 you get unlimited mimosas, belinis and Bloody Marys. That’s the kind of special that turns a little brunch with a few girlfriends turned into a wonderful 3-hour catch up session. Read more

    Yummy. Simple. Casual Italian food. Fresh pasta dishes. Small, unpretentious menu. Pasta half sizes are too small for entrees.

    Love the "All Aboard" prix fixe 3-course. (not just for restaurant week) Great deal, delicious food.

    Mushroom risotto is excellent, and their steak was good for an Italian place. Half sizes are pretty small, though. Not enough for even a small entree.

    Start with the Italian Hummus appetizer. Then order the steak, it's a humongous portion and medium rare was cooked perfectly.

    Service was so so. Friendly but less than attentive. The pesto rigatoni was off the charts amazing though.
