Creative & Fresh

Floriana is located in the Dupont Circle area of Washington, DC. It’s a lovely little establishment with a creative menu, friendly staff, and good food. The restaurant itself is in a converted house, so each room is very intimate. We were in what I presume was once a living room space, with a fireplace, a large bay window, and deep red walls.

The complimentary bread (pictured at top) is served with a mild and refreshing minty spread. The drinks (pictured above; they made me my favorite non-alcoholic drink: a ginger ale with cranberry and lime juices) were yummy, and the food was even better. I ordered the Gnocci al Pesto (pictured below), which is relatively self-explanatory — although the pesto is a Walnut Pesto that gave the dish a nice nutty flavor. While my picture doesn’t do the dish justice (the lighting was very low and romantic at that point), I will say that it was a very tasty and satisfying meal.
