Buca di Beppo serves authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by everyone at the table. Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

The lifestyle and food culture celebrated on an estancia, a large South American vineyard estate, is the inspiration for Victor Albisu’s flagship restaurant in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The airy, 174-seat agrarian space is home to a meat-driven, wine-centric menu that is a product of Albisu’s Latin American roots and travels throughout Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Uruguay.

"My office went for lunch together, since our chief had enjoyed the very reasonably priced lunchtime special and none of us were disappointed with the fare - it was all excellent. I ordered the tuna panini with avocado and asparagus and it was otherworldly good."

Unsavory salmon burger

"This was my 2nd visit within a month to Tonic. My first visit was very favorable - I actually booked dinner before a performance at nearby Lisner Auditorium and then returned for after dinner drinks. I had enjoyed the menu offerings then, so on this visit I wanted to meet colleagues working nearby and try more of the lunchtime menu. I chose the salmon burger but to my surprise found it to be the most tasteless, dull, dry specimen I have ever had, leagues less digestible than I find at a local greasy spoon across town. I had to say NO this time on the question of recommending Tonic to a friend based on this indigestible salmon burger - it was simply the very worst salmon burger I have ever had."

There's a time each year when Rome shimmers with a celebration known as "White Nights." It's an all-night festival of culture and the arts, but most importantly to us, it's a celebration of food and drink! Notti Bianche and Executive Chef Michael Cassady embrace this spirit each day serving seasonal, reasonably priced Italian trattoria fare throughout the day!

"Although our colleagues were nearly 45 minutes late, the wait for the food was, as always, worth it. The asparagus soup was delicious, as was the mushroom panini sandwich, although I will suggest that the chef's use thinner bread for the panini."

"Going to a hibachi restaurant like Koto is one of those guilty culinary pleasures that you enjoy for yourself without touting it to your friends, unless they happened to be with you to enjoy it as well. Being married to a Japanese spouse who is a far better chef and offers more wholesome and authentic cuisine than what is offered at Koto, that's where the guilty pleasure comes in - we both enjoy the silly show of knife skill, the building of an onion volcano and the sweet & sour flavors of the grilled meal coming our way. It's become our go-to family meal when celebrating our son's progressions through academia."

"Tonic is just a block from GWU's Lisner Auditorium, ideal for catching a meal before a show and the service didn't disappoint. Our waiter and the kitchen staff ably provided us our meal in a flash and it was a savory salmon with garlic spinach and homestyle mash potatoes that I'd go back for. While the clientele skew towards the university set, with their high volume outside voices easily bombarding adjacent tables, the structure's sturdy enough to absorb & disappoint some of the bombast so that you can have a reasonable conversation with your companions. All in all, for a first visit, Tonic didn't disappoint and we actually returned after the performance for a late night drink and snack."

What better place to be, than three blocks from the White House, walking distance from the Mall, across the street from the Warner Theatre, and right in the heart of Downtown? For over 11 years, Chef Geoff's Downtown has happily served Capitol Hill, theatergoers, business brokers, neighborhood friends and D.C. visitors alike with our New American Cuisine. Our expansive menu is designed to please. Enjoy 1/2 Price CG Burgers and $8.95 Pizza Pies during our phenomenal happy hour. Join us every Sunday for Brunch and every Monday for Half Price Wines. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"Beet & goat cheese ravioli were what I ordered and I enjoyed it tremendously - it's a fantastic dish, complemented with a light, creamy sauce, sweet onions and some kind of nuts. My friends had similarly delicious, unique dishes."
