Editorial reviews from the web (3)

Eat your “way around Italy” at this “bustling” Downtown spot, where “healthy” portions of “gently priced” fare (including “delicious pizzas and pastas”) lure crowds to a “well-designed space” with an “open kitchen”, TVs for “sports fans” and old-timey tiled floors; even dissidents who deem it “nothing to write home about” can’t resist sampling “pastries and sorbet from the attached cafe” or...

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Potenza Restaurant Review

This downtown Italian trattoria from the Stir Food Group takes its mission very seriously: not only can you browse through its compact wine store, but many of the DC workforce stop by for a morning cappuccino and baked goodies from its affiliated bakery. More earnest shoppers may pick up the day’s bread loaf and some gooey Italian pastry. But most people at mealtimes crowd into the main dining...

Low-key legit Italian eatery for high-minded gov and non-gov workers alike, located in iconic Woodward building. Well-sanded interiors resemble distinguished Kansas City smoking rooms from bygone era: plush, high-backed, dark-stained pine panels cabernet-colored velvet booths, settees, ottomans-you expect a bartender with a handlebar moustache. Solid pizza, other real-deal Italian from...

It's CLOSED

Average Rating

I ate at this restaurant three time two years ago. The food was fabulous, it had a huge outdoor seating section, and the wait staff was terrific. My husband and I went back day after day. I went this year in October and it was closed. No one at the W Hotel knew why. Too bad. A great loss.

Ugh. Talk about phoning it in. Unfortunately, this place has taken a major turn for the worse. Perhaps it is the impending closure? Whatever the reason, my...

Loved it...but

We truly enjoyed everything about Potenza! Soup to nuts, we had no complaint! So... you're thinking...why did I title it "Loved it....but...." The only reason is because our waitress told us the restaurant has been sold and will be changed over completely : (

Conveniently located with good food and a nice atmosphere

We liked this place well enough on our recent trip to DC that we ate there twice. The food, service and atmosphere were all quite good. I would especially recommend the pizza arrabiata. Bottles of wine are half price on Sundays and Mondays.

good food, good service, conscious of one-hour-lunch crowd

i've had mostly good food here - early on it was more hit or miss. sundays and mondays are half price bottle of wine days. the staff always go out of their way (sometimes too much) to make sure that everything's going well.
