This restaurant is very large but it looks small from the outside. The menu has a lot of winners on it including multiple eggplant dishes. I have eaten here numerous times including last Thanksgiving.

We gather here for family birthdays and it's always good, everyone is pleased with the quality and value. Our server tonight, Hamman (Izie), was superb.

I ate dinner here expecting nothing, because (a) we were a large working group with a pre-determined menu, which often means low effort in the kitchen; (b) it's a random place in a random suburb of DC where we happened to be meeting; and (c) I have the awful habit of comparing all Italian cooking to that of my Italian...

I had not been in several years but parent's gave us a gift certificate so we went and were pleasantly surprised. Grilled calamari app was fine(nothing special) but both of our entrees the eggplant parm and grilled mahi-mahi were excellent. Nice ambience in the main dining room. The best though was the service of the bartentender. My drink was missing... More

I have been going to That's Amore for at least 25 years. I always eagerly look forward with anticipation to being wowed by the quality and quantity of food. I must say that my most recent visit with my family was a disappointment. First the positive: The décor and service were top notch. The focaccia was excellent. The calamari was... More

I had been there years back. Took a Groupon to go back - found out the dishes were bland and watery. Nobody out of a party of 5 seemed impressed by anything. The wait staff was a hit and miss.

We've been several times in the last couple of years. Everything is good. Traditional Italian dishes, quality ingredients, expertly prepared and served. Better than any of the higher priced Bethesda restaurants, which is where we live. Kind of a secret. Probably because it's not in a trendy location. But easy to get to by car, right off i270. Very comfortable,... More

Just finished for the day on Labor Day with a work project that brought us from out-of-town, we walked from our hotel to this place at 8:30, knowing per the web site they were open until 9:00. Greeted with slight hesitation because of the hour, our host nonetheless took a minute to consult the kitchen staff who agreed to serve... More
