Bibiana Osteria-Enoteca, web site, 1100 New York Ave. NW, Washington, DC (entrance is at 12th and H Streets), 202-216-9550 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | WaPo | MenuPages | Don Rockwell | Yelp | Gayot]
Not cheap but a more or less genuine Italian restaurant — with tripe and the like — also with subtle flavors in the pasta. Currently it is a clear first choice for Italian in the DC area, along with Marea. We have been needing a restaurant like this for some time.
