Who We Are

After 41 years, DeCarlo’s Italian Restaurant is known as a local institution that has stood the test of time—where the charm of yesterday still exists. DeCarlo’s menu features a well-balanced mix of homemade pastas and breadsticks, Mediterranean-inspired seafood and daily specials. 

Lucy DeCarlo, owner and local Washingtonian,  and her staff, all of whom are dedicated to Italian tradition, are devoted to providing you with excellent service and quality.

Our intimate seating and quiet, upscale ambience make a perfect setting for you to catch up with friends, enjoy the company of family, entertain colleagues, or celebrate special occasions.  You can even dine al fresco on our covered patio. When you leave DeCarlo’s, you'll see why we're a true favorite with locals and long-time regulars; it's more than food, it's a true Italian experience.
