    Good, but what killed it was the service. The waiter simply spoke way too much and bothered me.

    The Maine lobster ravioli has garnered such a following that the chef can’t take it off the menu at Fiola Mare and Fiola without spurring a minor mutiny among his guests. Read more

    Everything is amazing! The lasagna as well as the lamb tortellini were stand outs. The pistachio soufflé is a delicious way to end the meal.

    Could be the best Italian restaurant in DC. Fresh fish, salads, homemade pasta and desserts all delish. And the service is top notch.

    Pastas, "susci," and burrata wowed us. Suckling pig, not so much. Be sure to try the ricotta doughnuts for dessert.

    Fiola is THE best Italian restaurant I have visited in the US (and there where a few)!! Not only is the food outstanding, but also the service and the wine list.

    Skip burrata with tomatoes.. The ahi tuna tartare was refreshing but not a must. The steak tartare was better. Order the lobster ravioli if someone else is paying for it. Donuts were overrated.

    Great place, great waiter, great wine. However my night was ruined while eating my chewy, rubbery, suckling pig. I bit into a raw clove of garlic... I was told it " accidentally " fell into my plate.

    Fiola has been cited time and time again since it opened last year for the talents of chef Fabio Trabocchi, but perhaps just as frequently for the talents of bar manager Jeff Faile.

    Best foie gras on the East Coast. Superlative service, amazing food, delicious cocktails and outstanding wines. Plus you might spend an evening with a Supreme Court Justice or a member of the Cabinet!

    One of the hottest and best restos in DC right now. Weekend reservations are hard to come by, so book early or walk in during the week for lunch. The food is truly amazing.

    The bar program here is outstanding. Also, the individual pour of your drink from the shaker into an empty chilled glass in front of you is a nice touch.
