The pasta here is to die for. Really. Absolutely top-notch, and will satisfy any craving you might have. A wide variety of sauces atop perfectly al dente noodles — an equation so simple yet so difficult to get right. Note the menu is limited to apps and pasta only; there are no meat or fish main courses. House wine is very good, and a steal at $5 a glass. Space is tiny and cramped. People crowd the doorway and wait standing in line outside, even in the snow. Service is so-so; indifferent at best. Don't forget to hit the ATM as it's cash only.

Worst restaurant I've ever been to. Ingredients are clearly store-bought, bottom of the barrel - the sauce even had that metallic taste that the worst sauces get by sitting in the can for top long. The cheese was some disgusting kraft Parmesan, not parmigiano or anything of the sort. And the pasta was like rubber. This place must make a lot of money selling such crap at these prices. You could prepare this food yourself for maybe $2, and that's just by simply combining junk from the bottom shelf.

Best Italian food I've had in DC so far. Beware of the long waits (sometime more than an hour) and they are cash only (3 different banks within a block radius) Everything I've had there has been delicious especially the lobster ravioli. Service isn't the best but I've never been to a restaurant that has had a wait this long with cheery service -so it's a little expected. Worth trying!
