Georgetown Restaurant Attracts High Caliber of Diners
With a spectacular venue that reminds one of the seaside on the coasts of the Mediterranean, you enjoy gorgeous views of Georgetown Harbor and the Potomac River as you sit on the outdoor patio or see through the restaurant’s large windows. Fiola Mare is especially attractive to a star-studded crowd of celebrities, politicos, and to anyone who wants to have a private romantic dinner, host a family or business event, or for any other special occasion that will result in unforgettable memories.
At Fiola Mare you will find the highest-quality and freshest seafood and other delectable delicacies that are exquisitely prepared and can be paired with the finest wines by a staff that is attentive and friendly.
Part of the menu changes daily based on the availability of seasonal ingredients, and those dishes are added to the favorites. Some of the specialties are the Fiola Maine Lobster Ravioli filled with a large helping of lobster meat and a robust sauce, the Risotto with Truffle, the Seafood Tower with its amazing variety of seafood and special sauces, a cappuccino with a pretty heart floating on top, and scrumptious desserts. You really must try the fabulous Bomboloni (ricotto doughnuts) that are warm, airy, soft on the inside, and with a bit of crunch outside. They come with ice cream and a super yummy sauce. You can also indulge in a top-notch brunch with a glass of bubbly, three courses, and a warm pastry basket.
The talent and passion of the hands-on owners, Maria and Fabio Trabocchi, is evident in their third fascinating restaurant, which is now added to the well-known and well-appreciated Fiola and Casa Luca. They deserve the title they have been given as “the Nation Capital’s most dynamic culinary couple.”
The trio thrives in the world-class Washington DC market of global dignitaries, heads of State, and other politicians. Some notable guests include UAE ambassador, Yousef Al Otaiba, Vice President Joe Biden, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
President Obama celebrated his 55th birthday on August 4 of this year and spent over three hours enjoying the cuisine and the atmosphere. A crowd gathered and sang “Happy Birthday” to the President outside the restaurant. Those lucky people were out for an evening stroll, discovered that part of the Georgetown waterfront was blocked off for that birthday dinner, so waited until the dinner was finished. Oprah has also been seen dining there as well as frequent political figures.
