About Us
Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.  In those rare instances when we might not meet your expectations, I promise two things:  First, that it was not for lack of effort, for negligence or merely for dereliction of duty. Second, that we will try even harder next time.  We might not always succeed but we will absolutely always try.  As the proverb goes; if at first you don't succeed... you know the rest. 

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

EventsWe will be featuring the beautiful region of Umbria for this month's wine dinner to be held on Sunday, July 30th at 6:30pm.  Italy's green heart, Umbria is a land unto itself.  The only Italian region without access to either the sea or international borders, Umbria is a solitary and soulful world apart.  Removed from outside influences, it has kept alive many of Italy's old-world traditions. You'll see grandmothers in aprons making pasta by hand and front doors that haven't been locked in a century.
It contrasts wild, in-your-face beauty with the gentle fall and rise of overlapping hills and wildflower-flecked meadows. The Etruscans, Romans and medieval feuding families have left their indelible imprint on its pretty hilltowns, where history seems to creep up on you at every corner.

 Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze.

The cuisine of Umbria originates from its Etruscan roots, and is characteristically simple, relying heavily on seasonal ingredients that can be found growing in its rich soil, swimming in the region’s lakes, raised on local farms, or discovered in the lush forests that cover much of the region. 
 
Umbria enjoys an abundance of produce like grains, vegetables and fruit thanks to its green and natural environment. In addition, there is also the abundance of forest animals, providing hearty elements to many Umbrian dishes.  It's all about freshness, simplicity and good flavor.
 
Locally grown truffles, lentils, cardoons, porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, chestnuts and some of the best olive oil in Italy are important staple foods in Umbria recipes.  It is also known for an abundance of meat dishes, particularly lamb, pork, and game.  The region lakes supply a variety of fresh lake fish such as carp, trout, mullet, pike, and perch. 
Umbria’s most famous wines include the white Orvietto (Trebbiano and Grechetto) and the reds Sangiovese, Sagrantino di Montefalco and Torgiano.


If you'd like to join us, please call the restaurant for reservations at (703) 451-1570.  It starts at 6:30pm  The cost is $100.00 per person.  We will be thrilled to host you and your guests for this delicious event.
