L’Ardente; A Rustic, Italian, Dining Experience in Downtown D.C.

Experience the intriguing moment of dining in a true, authentic, Italian bistro at L’Ardente. With thick wooden tables, rustic Italian décor, and the smell of freshly baked pizzas wafting about in the air, you will never want to leave this incredible dining experience! 

At L’Ardente, you can experience a unique taste of the Mediterranean without ever leaving your home in the Capital city of Washington D.C. Come for the food but stay for the drinks and the exhilarating experience. Start off with one of the many, delicious appetizers such as the prosciutto di Parma, or the duck hunt truffle. 

Then make your way onto the lengthy, yet specific, dinner menu. Some of the most popular items are the ravioli, the authentic Zucca with sausage ragu, or the Pollo al Mattone which is a whole chicken roasted to perfection with agrodolce glaze and salsa Verde. All dishes are truly and faithfully Italian-inspired. 

Finally, top off your meal with an adult beverage and dessert. With a wine list almost as long as your desired stay at L’Ardente, you will surely be impressed. If you’re more of a cocktail person, no worries- they’ve got them too! All of which pair nicely with the dreamy Tiramisu, the Torta al Cioccolato or even just some traditional soft serve ice cream, all on the dessert menu for your tasting. 

So come and dine with us at L’Ardente and get a taste of Italian pleasure.
