DeCarlo’s Restaurant

4822 Yuma Street, N.W.

Washington, DC 20016


DeCarlo’s Italian Restaurant is the ultimate expression of a charming neighborhood restaurant! It is considered a local secret, where you can almost always hear Sinatra or Bocelli playing in the background. DeCarlo's represents a dining experience where you can relax, talk, and enjoy a wonderful meal. The ambiance is a timeless feel of elegance – yet casual.  DeCarlo’s is devoted to providing you personal attention with the highest standards of quality.

Lucy DeCarlo created DeCarlo’s Restaurant 33 years ago bringing the warmth and love of the Italian tradition to her restaurant.  A wonderful retreat from the demands of the city, you can dine in a cozy booth, table or alfresco on our patio.  DeCarlo’s is the perfect setting to join friends, family or colleagues for lunch, dinner or a special occasion.

The menu features a diverse selection of Italian favorites and daily specials, from a splendid array of homemade pasta to Mediterranean inspired seafood. DeCarlo’s feeds the body and soul.
