Thank heavens Campono replaced the former establishment that had been in place for years and had seriously lackluster food, to put it mildly. The ingredients here are always super fresh. I love their sandwiches and gelato best. There's also a nice, simple, stylish ambiance that's...More

Great place for very good and quick dinner prior to performance at Kennedy Center. Shared the Marocco style pizza and steak sallad together with French Merlot vine and loved it. Only 5 minutes walking from the entrance of KC.
