In 1991 Noe Canales headed to Italy, where he spent a couple of years immersing himself in Old World culinary traditions that he used to open Tortino Restaurant. Today, DC area locals know Tortino as a place where you can experience fine dining meals near Hodge on 7th, along with comfortable, friendly service that’s anything but pretentious.
At lunch, Tortino Restaurant’s menu features dishes like thin-cut beef carpaccio with fresh burrata cheese and arugula pesto, while the dinner service emphasizes hearty entrees like osso buco style lamb shank, braised boneless short ribs and slow-simmered bolognese sauce ladled over a deep dish of fettuccine. Regulars say that Totino’s has an impressive wine, beer, and cocktail list, as well as a collection of barrel-aged spirits that are best enjoyed after your meal.
