Italian or Middle Eastern Restaurant in DC?
I have an overnight layover in DC and am looking for a great dinner in the Georgetown/Foggy Bottom area on a Thursday evening. Either Italian or Middle Eastern food in a fun atmosphere. After having said Italian or Middle Eastern, I'm actually up for any cuisine if you think there's a restaurant in the area I just shouldn't miss. All prices are OK. Any suggestions?

I am not a Georgetown expert by any means, but this is what I could think of. Firefly isn't Italian or Middle Eastern, but it is good food in a fun atmosphere in the Foggy Bottom area, I would really recommend it. Pizza Paradisio has good napoli style pizza in gtown. Mie N Yu is a fun atmosphere with good drinks the food is good (firefly is better), but they have an interesting ethnic blend.
Thanks, ktmoomau. We ended up have dinner at Notti Bianchi in Foggy Bottom. Friendly service with good, authentic Italian food, plus it was a quick walk from where we were staying. The only downside was that the atmosphere was a tad off. It could have been because it was summer, plus hot, plus humid, plus really hot. Did I mention it was hot? Folks may have preferred lighter faire and dined elsewhere.
