Pulcinella Ristorante in McLean
On Old Dominion Drive in McLean, Virginia is Pulcinella Ristorante. We are always on the lookout for a reasonably decent Italian place because we love pizza and all things pasta. In Milwaukee we always went to Palermo Villa. In fact we had a surprise fiftieth birthday party for my husband there all those years ago! There are several italian restaurants on Capitol Hill, but they are typically needlessly expensive, and sometimes we prefer taking the short drive to McLean along the George Washington Parkway. We noticed the place several times when we drive that way, which is quite often. We go to McLean Family Restauarnt every Saturday for brunch. So we finally tried it out the other day and liked it. It's obviously been around for quite some time. The decor shows it. But the wait staff and food was worth having again. We took home some of the lasagna and chicken Parmesan, and a half loaf of delicious bread was thrown in. We will go back and try the pizza. So glad we found it!
