The Concept

Trattoria Nicola’s, is a casual neighborhood restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine. As a second location to the award-winning Nicola’s Ristorante Italiano in Dallas, the 120-seat trattoria is located near D.C.’s Dupont circle at 1250 22nd Street Northwest beside the Embassy Suites.

With a dramatic entrance from 23rd Street, guests enter into a split level dining room featuring romantic high backed booths and rich colorful decor that stimulates the appetite. Trattoria Nicola’s also offers al fresco dining on the patio and private dining available in the Wine Room adjacent to the bar.

Lunch and dinner menus feature authentic Italian specialties. A daily luncheon buffet is available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. featuring antipasti, soups, salads, pasta and desserts.
