This review is not about the food at the Bethesda location, but about the horrible lunch experience I had there today. First of all, the place was filthy. I asked to be relocated from the first booth we were in, because the seat was covered...More

Went here after a movie. Lots of interesting dishes, with good wine selection. Vegetarians can find good food with protein here. Nice wine selection, ample portions.

Stopped by for some dinner before a movie at Landmark Theaters. Ordered my favorite, Eggplant Parmigiana. Delicious. Good portion size and reasonably priced. And that BREAD! Delicious.

Food is okay but way overpriced for pizza and spaghetti. Staff was nice but not so attentive. Decor was a little more elaborate than the mall stores. Bring back family pizza joints in Bethesda.

Mamma Lucia pizza is one of my favorites! The cheese pizza has generous amounts of cheese and holds up well for leftover enjoyment the next day, so I always order more than I can eat in one sitting! The main course portions are generous and...More

Staff friendly, kitchen not so! While they put out extremely large portions, all is not good. They give you two pieces when you order chicken & veal parma which we did and they give you a good top piece but the second, the one underneath...More
