I haven't had good luck with Extra Virgin, although I really wanted to like it (I want to like everything in walking distance). I've been there twice, and it wasn't very busy either time. The papa al pomodoro (tomato and bread soup) wasn't very good, nor were the salads I tried. The soup was nothing like what I had in Italy, and that might be okay, but it just wasn't very good on its own. The salads were just boring. The pastas aren't bad, and the desserts are pretty good. The service was slow, and they brought my husband the wrong pasta dish the second time we went. Oh, and the first time we went, they gave us the wrong dessert menu. The first menu had several things on it that sounded great, but I didn't get to have them. Anyhow, I don't have any plans to return. For something similar in the suburbs, I'll keep going to Ristorante Murali at Pentagon Row (best pumpkin ravioli EVER). For eating out in Shirlington, I'll stick with Luna Grill and Diner.

Any insight on January's restaurant week? I'm anxious for a participants list!
