Fodor's Review

Owner Biba Caggiano is a nationally recognized authority on Italian cuisine, having written numerous cookbooks, several of which are sold here in her inviting restaurant. The Capitol crowd flocks here for exceptional renditions of lasagna with Bolognese sauce, classic Milanese-style veal osso buco with saffron-risotto cakes, and pan-roasted halibut topped with a light caper-lemon-butter sauce. For dessert, try delicious zuccotto Florentino (a layer of rum-soaked cake with chocolate ganache crowned with a mountain of whipped cream, and bites of hazelnuts, almonds and chocolate). A pianist adds to the upscale ambience nightly.
