Met a colleague here for a quick early evening bite. The place isn't fancy but is an obvious hot spot for locals and neighborhoodies. Really good Flatbread pizzas and good salad and reasonable prices. Service is loose and Uninspired but friendly. This place is a good basic local Italian fare hangout.

DuPont Italian Kitchen is an established restaurant on 17th Street area and quite popular among locals. It is located at the corner of R Street and 17th Street. I had been to the place many time in the past and decided to try again with a friend. The food is still delicious (no fancy decoration) with reasonable price and with... More

I had found this the DuPont Italian Kitchen while searching for a romantic eatery that was affordable while on my anniversary trip. I was extremely pleased by the atmosphere of the restaurant. It was very cozy, lighting was great, and it was pretty busy for a Wednesday night. The menu had your typical Italian dishes. I had the Shrimp Linguini... More

Typically I'm good with basic comfort food Italian but this trip missed the mark. Lasagne was bland and uninspired. Nothing I'll come back for and pay extra for.

Had pizza delivery and some but not the greatest. If you like large chunked uncooked veggies in your pizza then this may be for you. The wings are extremely breaded, but the blue cheese was very yummy.

We went to the Dupont Italian Kitchen for dinner based on TripAdvisor 's reviews and we're quite happy with it. Ambience is not there but good food , good prices and excellent service were.

When we first arrived we were seated next to a very noisy group, I asked the host was the upstairs open, he said no but with out a blink said I see a table just opened up over there, and he moved us. The food was wonderful and I definitely would go back

Just 5 minutes walk from The Carlyle, this restaurant was a great local find. The food was really tasty....my mussels in white wine appetiser was really good, as was the veal from the daily specials menu. My partner had the (large!) mozzarella sticks followed with Chicken Parmesan which were also really good and filling. The drinks were sensibly priced: bottomless... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner in this charming Dupont neighborhood. Prices were very reasonable and the food was not only good value, it was quite good. Pastas seemed to be their specialty, but we had mussels as well as salmon. Tiramisu was excellent. The place was not that busy, but there is a nice patio for alfresco dining. Service... More
