The big appeal to me of the Bibiana menu was the option to try two of their pastas as the entree. Most Italian restaurants will bury you in a massive plate of pasta, but I was surprised how small the portions were here (especially at...More

Enjoyed a delightful meal at this downtown DC venue. Following a tasty Burrata appetizer, I found the "Stinging nettle & Ricotta cappellacci" too intriguing to resist. It was different, but delicious. Our guests gave high marks to the Asparagus, Spring squash and Tomato Risotto. Good...More

We had an exceptional experience at Bibiana. For my appetizer, I had the octopus which was accompanied by a bit of n'duja. The latter is not a common offering, is spicy, goes a long way and was something I had not thought of pairing with...More

Came in for drinks at the bar, incredibly dirty and sticky tables. I even asked to have our table cleaned and a bus person made a desultory pass and left. The table next to ours was and probably still is covered in debris. Stay away!

I asked my concierge for a recommendation for a not too fancy Italian restaurant near the hotel. She pointed me to Bibiana (perhaps she was afraid I would get lost...very likely). The restaurant was a bit fancier than I expected. Think classic power lunch type...More

I had a great meal at Bibiana. I randomly selected it as a place near where I needed to be. Service was exceptional, and the food was quite good. I would rank it up in the category of some of the best Italian food I...More

The service is outstanding, from time time you enter and are greeted by the Maitre D' until your waiter brings the check. To BAD we can't say the same about the meal. Our Entrees of choppino, seared monk fish, we're so salty that they were...More
