  1. Have you been to Sette Bello? Not bad- not the best Italian in the region, but certainly not bad.

      1. Yes, a good one! We had a lovely experience at Cucina Vivace (23rd Street near Crystal City), and I'm looking forward to more meals there.

        My initial remarks got posted in a thread about Bebo, so you may have missed them. Here's the link to the original thread:

        1. Il Radiccio certainly isn't flawless but it has some good options. Have had excellent veal there, decent risotto, and love the pistachio sauce if you get the all-you-can-eat spaghetti. There's also a chicken penne dish with goat cheese that's addictive. Their appetizers/bread are hit and miss.

          1. My favorites are Sette Bello mentioned above, especially their risotto with meats
            (lamb or veal normally) and Argia's in Falls Church, although I haven't been in a while.
