The food was not bad but the portions were small and the waiters were not very friendly or helpful. I would not go there again

Primi is particularly good with fish and pastas. Waiters know the choices and specials well and make good recommendations.

This is one of the finest restaurants in DC with delicious fresh food and superb, attentive service. The pastas are signature dishes but the restaurant also boasts excellent fish dishes, creative salads and a wide variety of choices. It's very busy so you'll need a reservation for both lunch and dinner. Outdoor seating on the sidewalk is also available.

Second time to this place in the last 5 years. Haven't been disappointed. Asked for a dish (Penne Bolognese) which wasn't on the menu or specials list. They had no problem with a special request. It was one of the best bolognese dishes I've ever had. Will definitely return when I'm in town again.

We read the reviews and felt must be a good place. Never had a more distasteful pizza in my life. The server made a mistake in taking down our order we asked for margerita pizza with onions and we had big chunks of Tomatoes on our pizza. We asked for onion and garlic in our pasta and we did not taste them being added either. On top of that the appetizer were served with then main course. Also our bill was presented to us with the main course. I have never seen such rude service and unappealing food. Stay away....
