"My problem with iRicci is that I can't decide what to have, as all of the food is so good and I tend to stick with my favorites. After some coaxing from the server, I decided to break tradition and try something new, the Veal Chop Milanese. Now I have another problem, I need to add it to my list of favorites. It was breaded to perfection, fried just enough and as tender and flavorful as one would expect. The salad served with it was an excellent accompaniment to the dish. The other selections, Filet Zingaro, Calamari and Sauteed Mushrooms were as good as always. Service is great and the hostess was extremely friendly. One of the places that shouldn't be missed in DC."

"I had dinner with some friends at 15 RIA. It is in a hotel, which usually does not speak well for a restaurant, but this is above par for a hotel dining room. The room is pretty and the ambiance quite romantic. The menu is limited, but had choices for all. There was one server on, who did his best, but was overwhelmed. He did manage to keep calm and display a great personality. The food was surprisingly good and ample. The wine list was also nice with a good variety. All in all, a nice place that I would visit again."

"Dinner itself was good, but ruined by loud, crass classless table next to me. Some people don't know no better, you know what I'm sayin'. A damn shame."
