Just 5 minutes walk from The Carlyle, this restaurant was a great local find. The food was really tasty....my mussels in white wine appetiser was really good, as was the veal from the daily specials menu. My partner had the (large!) mozzarella sticks followed with Chicken Parmesan which were also really good and filling. The drinks were sensibly priced: bottomless... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner in this charming Dupont neighborhood. Prices were very reasonable and the food was not only good value, it was quite good. Pastas seemed to be their specialty, but we had mussels as well as salmon. Tiramisu was excellent. The place was not that busy, but there is a nice patio for alfresco dining. Service... More

It was Saturday evening, and we expected to have to wait a long time, but it was only 10 minutes or so before they could fit us in. We... More

In Washington DC for a long Labor Day weekend. We stayed at the Swann House Inn and happened to stumble upon this place. We loved it so much that we went back the next day for dinner. The staff is very attentive to making sure that you do not want for anything. The food was fantastic. I had the Eggplant... More

Really pleased with this lovely Italian restaurant near DuPont Circle. Very good value for money and lovely food. It was great to find a reasonably priced restaurant near our hotel as hotel restaurant was very pricy. Service was good. We will be returning very soon

We were looking for a sit-down restaurant that was closeby, affordable, and family-friendly and stumbled upon the Dupont Italian Kitchen. It was perfect - fast service, amazingly affordable prices for the city, and fresh homemade Italian food.
