Washington, DC

Dear PoPville,

I live in Logan and every weekday, I walk by a new restaurant called Tortino on my way home–it’s on 11st St NW, between M and N, on the west side of the street. For the past few months they’ve been getting it ready and it appears to have opened for business in the last week or so, but I can’t find anyone talking about it on the internets. It’s a small, Italian restaurant. Any intel on who is behind it, any info about whether the food is any good, etc?

I stopped in to the new space as yesterday (thanks to all who wrote in) and I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn’t look like much from the outside but once you step inside, you’ll see that they did an amazing job. It’s two spaces combined. And the menu looks great too. You can see it here.

They’ve been open a couple of weeks but will be having their Grand Opening celebration on New Years Eve:
