Arucola, a rustic Italian restaurant which is nestled in the heart of Chevy Chase , DC has become a neighborhood favorite. Offering an authentic Italian experience to patrons on every visit, from the homemade pasta and breads to the wood burning pizza oven, and even the décor, you will feel as if you have just traveled to Italy . The menu changes daily, offering diners a fresh selection of pastas, meat and fish. Arucola also offers a selection of wood burning oven pizzas, variety of salads including our namesake Arucola, and an array of daily appetizers which include a selection from the marinated antipasto trolley, to daily creations.

"Although we've lived in the neighborhood for some time now, we had never tried Arucola Oseria (and one of our neighbors had recommended it to us as well). We decided to try it out one evening mid-week for dinner. It was extremely quiet and although staff were friendly, the interior looked a bit dated. we sat at a table and next to us on the floor was a very old (and perhaps broken) electrical socket sticking out of the wall. We started with a caprese salad and stuffed calamari, followed by the fish special and mussels. The food was decent -- neither particularly fresh or amazing, but also not bad. Our bill, including a beer and glass of wine, topped over $100, so to be honest we probably won't return as didn't feel the price met the quality. Service, however was very good and attentive."

Farmers Fishers Bakers is a full service upscale casual restaurant with an in-house bakery, sushi bar, full bar with 24 beer taps, and patio with water views. We support the American Family Farm along with made-from-scratch food, delicious hand crafted drinks, and green practices all around.<br /><br />The restaurant is upscale casual, which welcomes business casual dress, and dress that would be appropriate in a nice restaurant; this includes jeans and athletic wear, and warm-weather clothing, including shorts.
