Nice Italian Neighborhood restuarant – Walked in off the street on a Sunday afternoon and had a great dinner. Not a large menu but everything we had was very godd and notably fresh.

Great dinner spot across the street from the White House – Potenza is bustling with a fun crowd after work and offers a great dinner menu. Although it leans on the pricier side, it's worth it. Service was attentive and the meal was delicious. Try the chocolate hazelnut dessert - it's fantastic. Potenza also has a cafe attached for to-go orders and carry-out which is ideal for the lunch crowd. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. Plus, you can't beat the location adjacent to the White House. A perfect spot for staffers and tourists alike.

I really did want to like this place – Went for happy hour today and was subjected to an insanely long line, the slowest waitress one earth, warm beer, luke warm pizza and awful happy hour deals.

SIiiigh I will try again but its not lookin good.
