Locanda on Capitol Hill

I swear there was a stop-work order and no sign of activity when I walked past last week, but Zagat just sent out this:

Locanda to Open Next Week

Murano glass fixtures cast a flattering glow over Locanda, a remodeled Capitol Hill storefront Italian where patrons can sample over 30 wines by the glass while nibbling on piattini at its granite-topped bar or in its intimate dining room, where housemade pastas and grilled fin-fare are also served; its frequently changing menus are based on products sourced from nearby Eastern Market, sustainable fisheries and local growers (633 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-547-0002).
