Upon opening in September 2009, Bibiana instantly became one of Washington’s most popular hot spots.<p>Nick Stefanelli’s regional Italian fare features a variety of well executed small plates, antipasti and standouts including his whole roasted fish.<p>His cuisine helped earn Bibiana a glowing review and two-and-a-half stars from food critic Tom Sietsema of The Washington Post, and four stars from DC Modern Luxury critics. It also secured a place on Washingtonian’s list of the top one hundred restaurants in the nation’s capital. In June 2010 Bibiana was a finalist for “Best New Restaurant” and Nick Stefanelli won the “Rising Star Chef” from The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington. In October 2010, Stefanelli was also announced as the winner of StarChefs.com “Rising Star” award and Bibiana was named to Esquire’s exclusive list of 20 “Best New Restaurants 2010.”

"This is our third time at Bibiana and the food has been fabulous each time. The service is very nice, unobtrusive but attentive. The decor is simple but attractive. I highly recommend it for special occasions."

The memorable Northern Italian Cuisine makes this Upper East Side restaurant special. The Spaghetti Lobster is the classic signature dish of this Mediterranean treasure. The Wine Spectator awarded extensive and serious wine menu is carefully selected by owner Enrico Proietti. Very often a private wine tasting is happening at the corner table <br />making the wine list more notable every season. The one of a kind brick oven offers a variety of dishes, exceptional pizza and foccacina rabbiola that is hard to find in this city. For something sweeter-the deserts are impressive! The atmosphere is charming in this power playing neighborhood.

"Bella Blu was just as good Saturday night as it was Christmas Eve. We took our children Christmas Eve and some friends, who just bought an apartment in the city, Saturday night. Everything was perfect. Our friends actually live near Bella Blu and they now have a new favorite restaurant in New York!"

"We used to live in the city and now just visit here. We discovered Bella Blu by accident and ti is now my favorite restaurant in New York. The food is fabulous and the waiters even better. Clearly everyone who works there is enjoying themselves and it shows. You feel like family as soon as you sit down. We were in the city for Christmas and took our kids to Bella Blu for Christmas Eve and then arranged to meet some friends there 3 days later for dinner. If I moved back to the city Bella Blu would be my neighborhood restaurant - no matter what neighborhood I lived in!"
