    Horrible service, super slow, and the food wasn't worth the wait eventually. Don't even considerate for a workday lunch if you have something afterwards, or you'll never make it!

    Great but small family style atmosphere. fantastic Italian dishes. a DC staple since 1943... Make sure to try the specials and/or dessert

    Not sure what people are complaining about. We had a great time. Everyone was extremely friendly, always smiling, and very attentive. Had a great time and enjoyed all the food. The calamari is great.

    Pizza is wonderful, spaghetti and meatballs is great, and the bread is soft. get a reservation just in case - they do get busy. LOVE this place!

  • Ryan K.

    Dunno what it's like with a small group, but this is the worst service I've ever had in DC. And that's some stuff competition.

  • Michele H.

    Spaghetti Carbonara was great. Soups were NASTY.

    Michele Herman · July 17, 2011

    Pizza is heavy on the cheese. Raised crust reminds us of Chicago style.

    PizzaSnobo · July 15, 2011

    Dont eat here. Service is super slow. We were here with a group and had a pre-set menu and it still took them 2 hours to bring out our meal. Plus the food is not that good.
