Craving Italian fare but don't feel like dining out? Consider Tesoro, a locally owned eatery that doesn't make you choose between fine dining and comfort. Owner and chef Ignazio Bonnani has worked in the DC restaurant industry for 15 years, and in that time, his eatery, Tesoro, has become a neighborhood favorite for family dinners, romantic evenings, business lunches, and take-out service.
Menu favorites include the crispy fried calamari antipasta, the delicately seasoned tortellini soup, and traditional entrees with a slight modern twist, like Tesoro's signature chicken entree, which consists of lightly breaded chicken topped with prosciutto, tomato, and mozzarella and served with a rich marsala sauce. Be sure to save room for a slice of tiramisu or a cannoli for dessert!
