The atmosphere and the food are just amazing. I can't say enough. I went here for a special occasion and it was perfect. I highly recommend this place, but realize that it is pricey, but worth it to me.

One of the best and true italien restaurants in Washington DC area. They are known for their lamb chops, but all their dishes are unique and excellent. I love the so called cleopatra, sea food with pasta.

I stopped in yesterday (Wednesday) for an impromptu lunch with 3 colleagues. White linen service, Frank Sinatra playing softly in the background, Veal Chop, Pasta, Grilled Salmon, Chicken Romana, fresh bread, Motto Cabernet...wonderful. Great service, great food, great atmosphere, can't wait to return.

We used to come here often about 15 years ago. For some reason, we stopped coming. We decided to return, this time on a Friday night. The place was almost empty - which was obviously a sign that something had changed. What we found was...More

Hi I don't see veal chops on the menu. Is it special request or special order? Thanks, Nick
