Rating: Excellent neighborhood Italian
A night out with friends in Bethesda (outside of Washington D.C.) brought us to this modern neighborhood Italian.
A fairly typical menu.
I love Amarone. It’s made in the “ripasso” (rested) style. This means the grapes are sun dried into raisons on straw mats before pressing. This gives it a richer raison quality than otherwise.
For Washington, which isn’t known for great Italian, this was a solid meal. Service was friendly, the food was modern Italian American (not the dreaded “red sauce” style) and everything tasty.
