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!

"Notti provides a very creative menu; well beyond the norm. The Tagliatelle was exceptional, the Seared Scallops were very tasty, but the risotto had a slightly odd taste (not bad, just different). The Prix Fixe menu is a good concept for pre-theater dining, but I was disappointed by the no substitue policy. Restaurant salads are never worth the money and I would have preferred to swap it for the equally priced grilled eggplant, but that wasn't an option. A flexibility would have made the experience much more enjoyable. Short walk to Kennedy Center; great for a pre-show meal."

"...Our menu is just a reference for you-but in reality, creativity is in our hearts, our minds, and our kitchen, let me give you a different dining experience..."

"Mele offers a good variety on its menu, but the descriptions leave some questions unanswered. Likewise, the waiter's accent made him difficult to understand, which made it hard to decide what I wanted. I asked about side veggies and expressed my distaste for spicy foods, to which he assured me the veggies were not spiced. However, given the concern I expressed, he did not identify that my choice was quite spicy and suggest I choose differently. I expressed my displeasure with the manager and he commented that they don't bring the check until we ask for it and said he wanted customers to be satisfied, but didn't offer a concession. Overall, not bad and my girlfriend really enjoyed her scallops. Give it a try and decide for yourself."

Tony's has served up some of the best old NY Italian favorites. Our cooking comes from Southern Neapolitan traditions and served up in huge family style platters that serve 2 to 3 people.

"This is a family style restaurant. All meals are large portions designed for 2-3 people. Come prepared to stuff yourself. The food was overall good, but the bread was hard and burnt; not very tasty. The shrimp and artichoke appetizer is very good. Paired with a side of pasta and some veggies, it is a fantastic meal for two. The dining room is quite loud though and I found myself having to yell across the table to talk to my date. Overall, this was not bad, but I prefer Carmine's for a large Italian feast!"

"The food here is good; not exceptional, but plentiful and satisfying. The atmosphere was pleasing and the noise level was good. My only complaint would be the reception we received when we arrived. The restaurant called to confirm my reservation earlier in the day, but I did not accept the call because it was an unrecognizable number--my standard protocol. When we arrived, they did not seem to want to seat us immediately and only conceded to because we had theater tickets. Both my girlfriend and I noted this. It was likely a misunderstanding, but it should not have happened. The rest of the evening was good and the wait staff was courteous and attentive."

Rowes Wharf Sea Grille is perfectly situated at the most picturesque spot along the Boston waterfront. Chef Daniel Bruce’s vision for the restaurant celebrates the sea—inventive seafood dishes artfully presented, and a contemporary space with design accents that mirror the ocean beyond the windows. For great food, harbor front views, lively conversation and an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere, look no further than Rowes Wharf Sea Grille, located at the Boston Harbor Hotel..

"I was dining alone and the waiter did a great job keeping me company while not hovering or being intrusive. The food was fabulous; it's no surprise New England has a reputation for the best seafood in the world. The baked lobster was the single best seafood I have ever eaten. It was nothing less than spectacular. I highly recommend this restaurant."

Morton's The Steakhouse, the nation's premier steakhouse group, specializes in classic, hearty fare, serving generous portions of USDA prime aged beef, as well as fresh fish, lobster and chicken entrees.

"Other dining choices in Puerto Rico was not good. This restaurant was located in the Hilton Caribe where I was staying. Returned for the 4th time. Food and service were once again very good."

"Was dining alone. Waiter had 2 large tables to service. He spent most of this time dealing with them. Waited 15 minutes for my check after I finished eating. Waiter was abrupt was servicing my table. Disappointing as my other visits to Morton's were outstanding and I expected more."

"Morton's offered good food selection. The onion bread loaf that was brought out ahead of the food was very good. Got the mixed grill with shrimp, scallops, and steak. The apricot chutney was one of the best things on the plate."

"Morton's offers a great...but pricy...dining experience. The shrimp capalinni and Brussel sprouts were very flavorful. The atmosphere was relaxing and the wait staff was welcoming and very attentive. They played a good selection of music at a volume that allowed for easy conversation while offering a subtle background. Aside from the price...just my thinking, but no steak is worth $50...this was very enjoyable."
