This place is just a consistently good Italian restaurant that's been around for years. You won't get an "excellent" meal but you'll never get a bad one. They always have a salmon special that's really good and the chicken parmesan is rock solid comfort food.

This is a neighborhood Italian eatery with an outdoor patio. Food was good but the service was spotty. So many choices in the area that I'm not sure I'd go back.

We were in town for meetings, our first time in DC. I ordered seafood linguini, my husband had linguini with bolognese and meatballs. It was OK but nothing amazing. Our server was wonderful though, as was the host.
