Visited Pines of Rome in Bethesda for dinner. My veal marsala was tough and not particularly flavorable. My wife's veal francais was tasteless and came with no sauce. The marinara sauce on the pasta was watery. Bottom line, I can't recommend.

Food was ok. Lasagna wasn't really lasagna. It was a pile of meat and sauce with a little bit of noodles and cheese. Not a restaurant for children.
