Lovely glass corner restaurant, good for a lunch meeting. Sun shines in even in winter and gives a good view of the streets. Many light lunch choices available, and food comes fairly quickly. Ask for a window table...

This is a GREAT place for authentic Italian food. The zucchini soup was hot and very flavorful. Crusty baguettes were incredible.
My husband and I both agree the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp was the best we have ever had. Great location for people watching.

I had a dinner here in La Tomate by the chance of visiting DC. The corner restaurant looked very inviting from the outside, we were given a table as we came. I had some calamari to start followed by ravioli alla bietola. My friends ordered some pasta too. The food was delicious, but we all agreed that the portions could be a little bit bigger. Maybe I was that hungry. Thank you for the good service.

We enjoy coming here, especially when we find easy street parking. We were warmly greeted and got a great window seat. The steak tartar was fabulous in taste and presentation. The rigatoni with duck ragu and the black pasta with shrimp were very good. Rachid, our excellent server, recommended the tartufo dessert--spot on. We love coming here in the warmer weather to sit in the patio area.

My family, including an 11 and 14 yr old, had a delicious, memorable meal here. The service was warm and welcoming, and the food amazing, starting with wonderful bread and fruity olive oil. We waited a bit for our entrees, less than 20 minutes, and both adults were offered wine or beer on the house. Amazing cocktail, highly recommend the Aperol Spritz. Tender, tasty pasta. Loved the soup and the modern caprese. Nice ambiance, and reasonable prices too.
