What the Food Critics are Saying

“…[Chef Michael] White and executive chef Matt Adler offer plenty of robust yet refined comfort. Their focus is on Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, the land of eggy noodles and rich ragus. Accordingly, pastas are among the surest bets, whether a hearty crock of béchamel-draped lasagna made crunchy with bread crumbs or twirls of gramigna laden with tomato, cream, and crumbles of pork sausage. To start meals off, there’s an array of charcuterie, including a lovely duck-liver mousse glistening with wine gelée as well as a wonderful guanciale-and-poached-egg salad sweetened with caramelized onions and just enough vinegar. A wood-burning grill gives a tender and hefty pork chop the right amount of smokiness and was responsible for one night’s star entrée—a bountiful platter bearing lamb chops, skirt steak, pork-and-fennel sausage, and decadent slices of pancetta… Pastry chef Alex Levin is turning out all-around excellent sweets, in the form of a creamy, meringue-topped lemon tart, a pistachio cake with tangy crème fraîche sorbet, and an arrangement of milk-chocolate custard and bruléed bananas. They’re as simple as they are confident, and a fitting sendoff to one of the better Italian meals you’ll find right now—in a very crowded field.” – Washingtonian Magazine

“There’s a lot to like about a juicy cut of swordfish invigorated with broccoli rabe pesto, eaten in a window-wrapped room with a view... Order scallops capped with salsa verde and arranged on carrot-sweetened lentils, or rosy lamb and fried bell peppers sharpened with an aged balsamic vinegar, and you, too, are likely to wish you lived closer. Pastas are all rolled out in-house. An early favorite brings together broad lengths of stracci with sauteed porcini, cremini and oyster mushrooms, everything linked with rosemary oil.” – Washington Post

Ambience

Warm and lively, the large, loft-like space features amber-lit glass-wrapped columns, brick walls, and wood floors. An open kitchen (replete with wood burning grill) acts as the focal point of the dining room, while floor-to-ceiling windows afford lovely views of the Anacostia River.
