From an email:

“Trattoria Da Lina, Takoma Park’s newest restaurant, opened quietly this past weekend and will be open again to the public starting Wednesday, March 29th for dinner at 5:00pm. Diners will enjoy the rustic dining room complete with high ceilings, soft lighting and wood and brick accents. The open kitchen is view-able from the 55 seat dining room and future outdoor seating is planned. (Menu after the jump.)

Owner Marcello Minna offers Italian dishes using the freshest ingredients. The menu starts off with antipasti including salads, calamari, octopus and meatballs. Main dishes range from traditional favorites like spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna and chicken Marsala to innovative pasta options and others prepared with lamb chops and branzino. There is a carefully selected wine list with choices by the glass. Authentic desserts like tiramisu and pannacotta are available to complete the dining experience.

Trattoria Da Lina is located 3 blocks from the Takoma Metro station on Metro’s Red Line and parking is available next door to the restaurant.

    Looks cozy!

    I’m excited to try this place. With the exception of Republic, Takoma has a serious lack of good food. I hope this new spot bucks the trend.

    We just moved to Takoma Park (from AdMo) and I’m excited to see a new restaurant! I was getting a little nostalgic about the weekly restaurant openings in Adams Morgan.

      Welcome! It may never be quite the same as other neighborhoods, but we moved from Columbia Heights to the DC side of Takoma about three years ago and have been impressed at the rapid increase in new spots.

    Really hope they decided to do a less expensive lunch money… I would kill for a $10 spaghetti and meatball lunch option!
