Great fine Italian dining in the age of Cov19. Romantic. Older crowd. Ms De Carlo is usually in command.
Perfect spot in Covid times. It was not busy at all and that’s exactly what I was hoping for. It has a pretty nice ambience and somewhat reminds me of a tavern feel with nice big booth and the overall restaurant is very large in size which allows a lot of social distancing. Overall I thought the service was pretty darn good no issues or complaints people are pretty attentive. They are serving a more limited menu but still had lots of options and specials. I went with another couple and we all got different dishes I would recommend sticking to pasta dishes. Those seem to be the best and taste as well as size. I got the Bronzino and it was just OK but I blame myself for ordering fish at an Italian restaurant. Overall I thought it was a very cute neighborhood place and I will be back!
Service was slow. Took forever to get silverware! The drinks were made with too much tonic water. The salad and calamari were bland! The pasta was swimming in sauce, the shrimp in the pasta was still in the shell! The pasta with red sauce taste like it was from a can! Lastly, we sat in the second booth from the door and the seat was like the cushion was removed!
Unfortunately, we started off with burned bread followed by the most chewy fried calamari I'd ever had; and my trout main course though oily was at least tasty!
The whole restaurant is in dire need of refurbishment... I'll just say the carpet was totally worn out, damp and dirty! I won't be going back. Sorry!
Really appreciate how this neighborhood restaurant has handled the Covid situation--being open and available to customers, but adhering strictly to best practices, and slimming down the menu so everything remains fresh and delicious. Thank you.
The food and service at DeCarlo's are always good, and Saturday was no exception. Both the salad and the soup special were good, as well as the fried calamari. The veal parmesan was delicious, the trout tasty and the veal special with apples very good. We ended up splitting spumonis. A wonderful meal!
This is a wonderful dining experience, especially during these stressful times.
We ate indoors without hesitation, as tables are spaced further apart than required, all staff wear masks and it is clear the owner is very conscientious about the safety of her guests.
The food was delicious (veal scallopine special and pasta bolognese), fresh salads and excellent cocktails (basil mojito and limoncello martini), topped off by just-right desserts.
If you are looking for a relaxing evening out in a safe emvironment, you can't go wrong with De Carlos!
The tomato sauce tasted straight out of a can!
We have been dining at DeCarlos for many years. We hadn’t been out in a while due to the pandemic. It was so good to see Israel and the food was delicious. We felt very safe eating there.
Specials are normally very good!
seating is socially distant.
Outsie patio needs heaters
Food was awful. Agnolotti were drowned in overpowering cream sauce I didn’t want to complain but either their regular chef was not there or they have stumbled in the food department. Ugh
Salads cold and crispy delicious. Excellent entrees. Great wine recommendation. I had the Pappardelle alla Aragosta, my husband had the Trenette alla Carbonara both were very satisfying! Pleasant enjoyable dinner!
Have been eating here for over 20? years. Always prefer a real professional restaurant and booths. Owners and wait staff are the best. Nice to have off-street parking. They probably won't be able to last the new owners but hoping for a new home in NW DC.
Quiet for conversation with exquisite food and service!
Food and service are terrific and quiet ambiance allows for conversation. Great location for family, friends and business associates.
De Carlo's is reliable very good, very friendly, very comfortable for chatting with friends. Their patio is great these days.
Very much enjoyed dining here again! Excellent meal.
Poor food Saturday night. Doubt we will return though we have had good experiences over the years.
Lovely outdoor space, food excellent as usual. Our favorite restaurant.
Fabulous food and service!
Menu abbreviated. My entree disgusting - plate hot but food lukewarm. Very bland. No spices or even salt. Tasted like it was made the day before and nuked.
Had to fight mosquitoes in the patio.
My third and last visit. Wine and bread were good. Everything else mediocre
Really nice... we are outside on the porch. They are very very accommodating on changing the sides and how food is prepared!
The food was great—service good, but servers were working very hard.
DeCarlos is a neighborhood favorite and has a nice covered patio that makes dining there safe and easy.
The food is always good, service attentive. Soft shell crabs were wonderful as was the steamed artichoke.
We hope everyone will support the restaurant during this difficult time.
We consider DeCarlo's as one of our "special occasion dining" venues. The food is consistently tasteful and well presented. This time the setting and atmosphere were quieter and low keyed than our prior visits, no doubt a consequence of the current pandemic situation.
The food was delicious and well
prepared—loving their roomy terrace with awning during this time when we prefer outside seating even on hot days!
The last day it was open before the mandatory closure owing to Covid-19. We'll hope it reopens soon.
I eat at DeCarlo’s regularly and enjoy the food and ambiance and ease of finding parking.
Great meal and throwback ambience. Definitely a go to for my wife and I.
Waiters ignored us, and were generally not pleased that they had to serve us. They seemed to be better with the regulars at the restaurant. We may return here, but only for the food, and the atmosphere is pleasant--even better in the summer when the patio is open.
The food was poor. We had the risotto and the lasagna.
Valentine’s dinner. Truthfully and not surprisingly because of the crowds the food and service weren’t quite up to their normal excellence, but it was a wonderful meal and, as always, quiet. The special,pasta was a little overcooked but very tasty. The kitchen forgot to add the scallops, but the server noticed as he was serving it and ran back to get them. They arrived beautifully cooked and browned. DeCarlos has the best bread around.
Delightful experience always. Been patron for decades. Food and service are consistently good. Owner, family, staff and other diners are friendly and considerate. You won’t regret visiting DeCarlos. It is a gem.
We were among the very first guests for Valentine’s Night and our timing couldn’t have been more perfect. It was quiet and romantic. Neither of us had ever been to De’Carlo’s before and said we agreed we wanted to return. We loved our experience.
Excellent, as always. 😊
A reunion of friends who now live on two coasts.
We were able to talk hear ourselves, but not other diners. The attentiveness of waitstaff was just right. Our food was delicious. We could not have asked for more. This will be the first of many visits.
We love DeCarlo's and dine there several times a year. There has been some recent turnover in service staff, so a few waiters are not as familiar with the menu or practices as the more experienced ones, but we still like it and want to support the restaurant as long as we can.
DeCarlo’s is always wonderful’
Overall a great dining experience at a neighborhood restaurant. Only problem was the veal chop that was over-cooked.
