Fantastic restaurant. Discovered this place three years ago while in DC for work. Now it has become a mainstay any time I am in the DC area.

Excellent pastas and appetizers. Service was unobtrusive and competent. Low-key and casual ambience. Definitely recommend!

Wow. We loved this restaurant.

My wife and I and another couple were in DC for a conference. We found Tortino when searching for a restaurant near our hotel. Everything was so good.

The Burrata with roasted red peppers appetizer was a perfect combination. The bolognese was the best I've ever had and I often order this dish.

My wife had the short rib risotto. Terrific flavor, excellent comfort food. I couldn't stop "helping her" finish her meal (and mine).

Thank you Chef!!!

Lovely as usual. Wait staff greeted me with pleasant enthusiasm. Grilled scallops were superb and the steak perfection! Service warm, friendly and efficient. I felt as if I was treated as their favorite auntie!

This was my first experience with this restaurant. While it was previously unknown to me, it is well known in the neighborhood and every table was filled. The menu is diverse enough for everyone to be able to find something they like, regardless of dietary preferences. The food was excellent. The presentation was inviting and compelling. The service was attentive. The wine list was well matched to the menu. The prices were reasonable.

I would recommend Tortino without hesitation and I look forward to returning again in the near future. This was a wonderful experience.

This is our Italian go-to night out restuarant, having migrated from the delicious but overpriced Osteria Morini. The ravioli always amazes. This time it was braised lamb - outrageously delicious. Scallop appetizer was perfectly seared. I love that this feels like a real place, not an overly polished restaurant group.

Tortino is a true find in a city that has a wide array of dining options and considerable competition. The food is exquisitely prepared.The staff is friendly and attentive. Everyone I have taken there has been genuinely impressed.

This place is my neighborhood go to restaurant and it absolutely positively never disappoints! Dinner tonight was a homerun and the discounted wine on Tuesday nights enabled us to buy a beautiful Italian wine with our dinner. This place stays on my regular rotation!

Great food, great service and a real rarity these days: Tortino's understands the value of having good acoustics in the dining area!!! You can actually have a conversation with your dining partners without shouting or straining to hear each other. Every restaurant in town needs to take a lesson from them and learn that good acoustics = higher revenue and happier diners!

Don't understand all the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp for Tortino. The service was slow for such a small restaurant on a weeknight and the selection was very limited for an Italian restaurant. The entrees were seasoned too heavily as were the heaps of sauce. There are many better restaurants in the area.

I frequently dine at Tortino and was happy to take a neighbor and friend who had never been. We both loved our meal. I always order pasta. It is excellent. This is one of these restaurants that is truly a neighborhood gem that also attracts visitors to Washington
