Picked this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and recommendation from the hotel. Awesome Italian and great wait staff. You should book reservations a day or 2 in advance. If you want to eat at 5 or 530, there's a good chance you would not have a problem. I had lasagna and my husband had spaghetti and meatballs. I tasted... More

This place is small so make reservations, they have an upstairs as well, but again a small place. Service was good, food was good, small parking lot in the back. Only bad thing: food took a long time to come, so a discount was given. But still would come back for the food

This was a great little place, I am so glad that we visited! We had a great meal and the service was excellent! For starters, the bread was great, we had Caesar salads and they were very flavorful. The pizza is also delicious (try the arugula & prosciutto), my husband had the the Chicken Parmigiana and it was wonderful. My... More

Went for dinner. The place seems to have a substantial take out business in addition to its dining room. Food was good and the service was reliable. There is free parking beside the restaurant, although it is a long walk from the nearest Metro stop.

I have always enjoyed my visits to Virginia, USA. I first visited the State many years ago when my friend Connie was my hostess. It was then I also met our friend Denise. Good times. However, on my most recent visit to Virginia, my husband and I went with our friends Lisa and Bill. We visited their niece, Nika and... More

We go there before theatre, mostly, because of good food and quick service. Great range of pasta sauces, and very cheesy pizzas. Nice wine selection.

i went to this restaurant because it was walking distance from my new apartment 3 years ago. I go back just about weekly for the food! The endless bowl of Pasta with choice of sauces is perfect depending on your mood. Their wood fired pizza is about as close as you can get to Naples. The signature dishes are very... More

My husband and I have been coming to Il Radicchio for three years. Every time we dine there, we always leave happy. The pastas and the pizzas are delicious. The portions are HUGE, so there's always left-overs for lunch. The staff is friendly and the ambience is wonderful. It is definitely an authentic Mediterranean restaurant.

Do not judge a book by its cover. I thought from the exterior that it was just a simple pizza place. I was wrong. The food was good, the service was excellent, and the wine was satisfactory. We will go back.

The converted old house now serving as a restaurant should be cool enough - particularly given the quite high-end apartments all around this neighborhood. But the peeling paint on the street sign should have been some indication of what lies within. A modest-sized dining room, with less than a half-dozen parties seated should have been the second sign that return... More
