DC native, Ari Gejdenson, has brought Acqua al 2, known around the world for true Tuscan cuisine, to Capitol Hill. Famous for its Bisteca alla Fiorentina, balsamic and blueberry fillets, variety of vegetarian pastas, and daily fresh fish selections, this warm and rustic restaurant offers an authentic dining experience that will transport you back to Florence.

"Waited 3 minutes for workers to find hostess, never found. Seated by waiter. My guest arrived minutes later, was told I hadn't arrive. Decor is lovely Old World & rustic. Cocktails were delicious but high-priced. Go for the salads, they're big and full of flavor: Insalata Finocchio (fennel, pine nuts, radicchio); The Rucola e Pere salad was excellent (Arugula, pear). Fussilli Lunghi al Mascarpone e Funghi was the fave out of both main dishes; very mushroom-y, with a very light cream sauce. Cannelloni Mascarpone e Funghi--mushrooms are lost in this very saucy dish, which is disappointing if you want to taste mushrooms but the dish is still very tasty. Our waitress was just ok and scarce. Server was very good--gracious, mannerly, observant."
