Best Italian Restaurant in Washington DC!

I was very hesitant to post this entry. This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Washington. Al Crostino, an Italian restaurant with a fantastic wine list and delicious food is located on U Street between 13th and 14th. The servers are the nicest, the chef cares, and the prosciutto is unbelievable. Normally, I like to keep secrets like this to myself but I have grown to like you guys so I thought I’d share. If you are going on a date this place is the best – you can impress without breaking your wallet. Plus you are in a fantastic location to go for drinks after dinner. The ravioli is my personal favorite but this is one of the few places where you really can’t go wrong with whatever you order. So thank me later after you try this place!

  • I vote for Sorrisso, across the park in Cleveland Park, the place with the thinnest pizza crust in town. The owner’s son studied pizza-making in Italy. It’s fun to sit at the bar, eat, sip wine and watch the dough being tossed and shoot the breeze with the family.

  • Wow, I am on an endless quest for at least edible pizza in DC and Sorrisso’s sounds great!

    Al Crostino is indeed good too. I think it was called something else before though, and was even better back then. And the dark brown walls back then were much cooler than the current easter yellow interior.. 🙂 Nonetheless, indeed very much worth a visit.

  • Not to stray from the topic at hand, but Red Rocks should be open by the end of next week. It is on 11th in Columbia Heights and was referenced by PoP in an earlier post.

  • I like the Churreria Madrid in Adams-Morgan. Also wonderful service, good food, great prices…

  • Reasonably priced for reasonable food. I certainly wasn’t wowed, but I also wasn’t unhappy. Overall… satisfactory – just like most moderately priced restaurants in DC.
