Overview

With an Ernest Hemingway-inspired name (Agnes being the WWI Red Cross nurse who was his muse for “A Farewell to Arms”), this Capitol Hill, modern Italian destintion serves pizzas and pastas in a wood-floored space lined with antiques. There are dishes like Dungeness crab risotto, house meatballs, harissa-glazed rainbow carrots or black pepper tagliatelle laden with lobster mushrooms, squash, lemon and Pecorino. Drink options include wines ranging from Italy to California and a cocktail list heavy on the classics, like Hemingway's favorite Death in the Afternoon (Champagne, absinthe).
