Food was absolutely amazing, and service was wonderful. Best (AMAZING) Melanzane alla Parmigiana we've found in DC!
I had a solo dinner during a work trip. The food was delicious and the staff attentive. Small and quiet place to decompress. Cozy and homey decor, rather than trendy and impersonal, which contributed to simple and comfortable ambience.
Excellent food and service in a quiet place with lovely ambiance!!
Food and service were both superior.
This is a cozy, old-fashioned Italian restaurant in the downstairs of a townhouse, therefore it is definitely not accessible for persons with disabilities. There are homemade pastas — we split a generous portion of gnocchi di patate— tender veal dishes, fish and seafood. Service is friendly and efficient. If you’re looking for good food in a casual setting where you can actually have a conversation and not spend a fortune, consider Giovanni’s Trattu.
This place is a treasure, a quiet dining oasis. The music is soft and very retro Italian American. Pasta dishes are made with fresh ingredients (no canned clams in vongole dishes). The salads are kind of dull, but prices are reasonable and service is excellent. No complaints.
Our dinner was amazing! We loved the small and personal feeling tonight. The food was so delicious and the service was just lovely !! Thank you for a lovely evening 💜
We’ve been eating here for special occasions for years, and the food and service has always been stellar. Our most recent dinner here in Nov of 2018 was just as delicious and delightful as ever.
Service so, so pasta over cooked. Grossly over priced for the value you receive.
Let me put it this way: the first thing we do after booking a trip to DC is make dinner reservations here. The food is delicious and authentic, service is excellent and the setting superb. We wish we could get there more often!
Absolutely authentic gem! Tucked away on a small street...and down a few steps. Clean, fresh, and attentive staff. Food was very tasty. Love this old school restaurant! Will recommend and return.,
Great service, food was very tasty. Portions ok size ( ot too big or small). Small place that reminds me of some of the small NYC italian restaurants . Nice gem in Dupont neighborhood.
I've been in DC for 11 years and have searched high and low for Mama's style Italian; I'm originally from New York. I can't believe it took me so long, but I finally found it!! It was delicious and the service was great. I felt like I was in a restaurant in Little Italy in NYC. From the ambiance to the food that was delish, it was just an amazing experience. I would recommend it to anyone.
Authentic Italian food, served with fresh ingredients. Decent wine selections as well.
We loved the ambience and the food! The staff were very accommodating to our multiple changes in reservation.
This is a consistently reliable local Italian (Venetian) restaurant. Quiet, good service and value.
An intimate restaurant and really good Italian food
We love Trattu; the food, the service, the ambience, all are terrific.
Wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful restaurant!
This is a lovely little restaurant with great food and a super friendly staff. I had the gnocchi which was some of the best I’ve had in years. My husband had a great veal milanesa. Both of our dinners were delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We were in DC for the wedding of a friend and ate dinner here the night before the wedding. To our happy surprise, the wedding party had also chosen Giovanni's that evening. The food was excellent, service perfect and all in all it was a wonderful dining experience.
He food was good. The restaurant itself had a musty smell. Not the best but by far not the worst.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere and always consistent!
The food was good overall. The gnocchi didn’t have a lot of flavor but the rest of the food was good. The location was really cool but the decor was a little strange for my taste.
Had a great time. Wifey and I used to go here years ago and we were happy to see it's back! Very small and intimate, well worth checking out.
Truly a big pleasure to dine. Wonderful staff, kind and attentive. Deserts, WOW!! Chocolate mousse not for this earth and peach desert, amazing! Very recommended.
Located about 1 block off Dupont Circle, great food, wine, ambiance, and service. Very authentic Italian! Hope to go there again one day!
Comfortable, quiet and perfect for conversation with friends. We are regulars, but even I was delighted when the staff surprised me with a slice of tiramisu and a candle for my birthday.
Upon walking in there was a very noticeable odor that was a bit off putting, but the food was delicious. Overall, not the best place for a date, but it wasn’t bad. Just very average.
Great atmosphere, quality food, and a great place for business discussion - not loud. The menu prices are very reasonable. Overall, one of my favorite placed to eat in DC.
Lovely little local find with incredible food and fabulous service.
Food is delicious and the hosts are wonderful. Great spot for lunch or dinner.
Very friendly service in a nice atmosphere. The food was competent but not remarkable.
This has to be my 7-8 time that I visit. It has never disappointed me. I will continue visit and recommend
We had a delicious meal here! The service was attentive without being intrusive. This restaurant is a lovely little locally-owned place tucked in the basement of a beautiful building. The space is well-used and the ambiance is wonderful. We highly recommend...especially the eggplant parmigiana and the spaghetti carbonara! I started with a Caprese salad; my husband had the mussels. The tira mi su was delicious, and my husband enjoyed the cannoli. I finished with a delicious espresso. Definitely a must-visit!
Vacation. Quaint spot. Great food. We would go back.
This hard to find restaurant is a neighborhood gem. The food is good and the staff friendly. Their sign is missing, so I had to guess that I was at the right place and that I needed to go downstairs. We felt that we had this quaint place to ourselves and really had a nice time. We enjoyed our app and entrees. Get the chocolate mousse for desert! Would recommend!
Delicious authentic Italian food served in a homey atmosphere where it feels like a family meal. Very lovely and the food is cooked to perfection.
Charming small restaurant with fresh authentic Italian food. Strongly recommend!!
