Thanks to Jenna for sending this desperately needed good dining news for Cleveland Park. There was much consternation after learning Ripple had closed after 7 years in Cleveland Park.
Cucina Al Volo opened in the former Pasta Mia space in Adams Morgan back in August of 2016. The early word on Cucina Al Volo has been very good. So let’s mark this a score for Cleveland Park.
Cucina Al Volo’s website says:
“We know that simple ingredients can lead to something extraordinary. Whether you’re stopping in for a quick lunch and dinner or taking home our traditional Italian pasta to share at your own table, Al Volo has you covered. Our authentic Italian pasta recipes have been delighting diners with our Bronze-cut pasta making method. After using wholesome organic ingredients, our pasta is cut intentionally rough to allow savory Italian sauces to stick all the better to your pillowy Ravioli and your twisty Fusilli Bucati. Your nonna would be so proud.”
Check out their full menu here.
Stay tuned for an opening date.
