Italian
Claudio Pirollo grew up in Belgium where he soon discovered his passion for cooking as he wandered around his father’s fine Italian épicerie (grocery store) and watched his mother prepare dinner every day. The dual influence of Italy and Belgium triggered Chef Pirollo’s aspirations to develop his knowledge and experience with different flavors.
A Trattoria is not a pizzeria, it is an Italian-style eating establishment that is generally much less formal than a ristorante but more formal than an osteria. It is similar to what the French call Bistrot.
Trattorias are traditionally family owned, casual, rustic neighborhood restaurants found throughout all of Italy that offer fresh, regional, local and family specialties on the menu.

    We were seated at the last table in the back near the bathrooms, bar, and kitchen. I could hear the line chef calling out the orders. Dead orchids dot the dining room. So the ambiance was not the best. The champagne, red, and white wines were delicious and reasonably priced. Mostly the wines were Italian. The beet salad is amazing. I would go back for that alone. The fried artichokes were delicious. The eggplant parm was burnt and the cavatelli with peas was swimming in too much sauce. The tiramisu was good and the gelato delicious. Both desserts were large. The service was ok but not attentive. I have been here one time before and had the pizza which was good. The restaurant is VERY loud even though I read that they added soundproofing. Would I go back? Probably.

    Chef Claudio and his staff served up another spectacular meal for us and our guests! The red sauce for the Gentile Bucatini was delicious with rendered down guanciale!!! The fried artichoke appetizer and tuna crudo were a great way to begin with a cold bottle of Arnes, a nice dry Italian white wine. We'll continue to support this outstanding local favorite! Also, thank you Marine for taking good care of us!

    We love the staff and the food at Claudio's. It is definitely more casual than our favorite restaurant up the street (Et Voila), but very good still. The menu is simple, but a great variety. Very fresh and seasonal options for pizza and pasta. Everything is nicely prepared. The noise level is very high (even with some of the new ceiling devices meant to muffle the noise). This is not overly bothersome, but just good to know that it will be a louder and very lively setting (meaning everyone is having a GREAT time, too).

    Over priced for mediocre food. Focaccia was just plain bread, no herbal taste at all. Suckling pig nothing to write home about. I spilled my wine and not only did the waitress not offer to refill it but didn’t even ask if I wanted another glass.

    We’ve dined here twice recently, both times outdoors. The food and the service (thank you, Augustina) were excellent. It’s important, though, to mention the unpleasant noise level indoors, where we checked in for our outdoor table. We look forward to returning, but not if we had to sit inside.

    A busy, energetic, and vibrant neighborhood restaurant in Palisades, and their food is just as great as, or sometimes even better than some of the better known restaurants in DC. Their pizzas are great, with generous toppings and perfect brick oven crusts. Freshly made pastas are amazing, especially the bucatini. And the specials are always a must try. We will continue to come back, though we need to figure out less busy times, as the restaurant does get super crowded.

    Good afternoon, Thank you for this perfect rating and review. having tried all the food, of course, I do agree with all of the above. Our Chef Claudio's is really talented.. as for the noise, I call it Prime time. The best thing would be to come around 5 PM :) Even more on tuesday and Wednesdays. Best regards, Chloe

    Like the first, this second visit was for lunch. We sat in one of the two front-window tables, which seem the best from a noise-suppression point of view. The food was excellent as was the service. The place was busy, and it continues to attract patrons, noise may be a problem. The limited menu had several good options. My spouse and I liked our pasta/clams and the branzino, which was broiled in an interesting way--just the right moisture content and a bit crispy, and very tasty. The bar menu was impressive, as were the deserts. We will return for a dinner sometime soon. Parking is easy in the surrounding residential neighborhood. The "patio" is a covered area on undulating asphalt and seemed unattractive and exposed to pedestrian and auto traffic. In the rain, no one was using it anyway. It will need major work, but I hope the owners eventually undertake that project.

    Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to share so much about your experience with us. It will help us improve :) I am glad to read that the food tasted good and that you were satisfied with the menu offering. You should really come back to give the specials some tries. Chef Claudio always creates delicious specials :) The patio is just newly open, but no worries, Our chef Claudio doesn't sleep much, he s always working on improving things. the best is yet to come. I hope to see you soon for more delicious dishes, best regards, Chloe

    We like everything about Claudio’s except the noise level. According to an email, based on customer feedback, the restaurant had installed additional noise panels and moved the tables further apart. Last evening we were surprised that no changes had been made (which our server confirmed). Two of the people in our party wear hearings aids. To be heard, we had to almost shout at the person across our table. We plan to try Claudio’s for lunch. If the noise level is still unacceptable, we will solely patronize its sister restaurant where we have dined for years. The configuration of the restaurant compared to its sister restaurant is a factor in the noise level.
    Claudio's TableResponded on 9 May 2024
    Good morning Barbara, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you feel like nothing has changed. We have installed the panels, but there is only so much that that can arrange. Busy time is going to be a little noisy. Lunch time is more quiet, please try and join us for that. :) Also we have just opened our patio last night. That's perfect to escape inside's noise. Maybe you could try and experience that ? We will be more than happy to keep on welcoming you at Et Voila. The two restaurants are very different and the atmosphere too. They can't be compared, and that what we wanted to offer t people. Create something different, not a second et voila :) Thank you for your loyalty Best Chloe

    Terrific food, handsome setting, professional staff - what's not to like? This several month-old Italian restaurant replaced a beloved neighborhood restaurant (DC Boathouse) and is a worthy upgrade. Pizzas and pastas are excellent. Fairly extensive menu so there should be something to please everyone, and prices are consistent with comparable restaurants. Some areas for improvement: the Caesar salad dressing is odd, more like a weak, creamy ranch dressing; the delicious pizza could have a crisper crust; and WOW is it noisy (what did they expect with hard floors, walls, ceilings, no upholstery). But it's always crowded at night and that tells you all you need to know!

    Went to dinner on a Saturday night with friends, table of four, with a reservation. We were there for 1 hour and 15 minutes and we were asked to leave because they wanted our table, presumably for walk-ins. In all my decades of dining out, I have never been so blatantly asked to clear out because we were done eating. It ruined our evening and first time experience here.

    The food was ok...Not very many ravioli's for the price of 22.00 dollars. (7 ravioli's all together!) the noise level was so loud is was difficult to hold a conversation! Our waiter needs to have a better attitude towards his customers...He was very pushy and never smiled...then they want a big tip!!! I don't think I will be going back anytime soon!

    Claudio’s Table continues to please. Excellent food and service. This time we enjoyed two appetizer specials — fried artichokes and Cantabrian anchovies. Excellent dishes both. Then, for the first time, we had two pizzas for our mains — the vegetarian with pesto and the prosciutto and parmigiano — again, both excellent. Ordering two pizzas meant that we did not have room for deserts, unfortunately. But we will have an excellent dinner at home this week courtesy of our leftovers!

    So many fine items to choose from last night. We brought a friend and he was even a bit overwhelmed with all the choices but went for the artichoke special and the steak. He learned a lot of Italian (menu descriptions) while there too and enjoyed all the flavors from several more dishes that we shared. The warm breadsticks n prosciutto were delicious to start so too the arancini (our favorite). A nice addition to the menu was the focaccia bread plate. Bravo to Claudio n his great Staff.
