Bibiana is one of those places that will stay in the District many, many years. The number one reason for this staying power is consistency. I recently returned to the restaurant, which specializes in Italian cuisine, and am happy to report not much has changed since my last visit some odd years ago. The ability to maintain service and a menu that is still pleasing since the day you opened your doors is what some restaurants lack in the District, which eventually leads to their demise. Every course from the creamy burrata to the ravioli at Bibiana were filled with fresh, robust ingredients that left me with the longing craving for tomatoes the entire week. Needless to say I look forward to my next visit and this time I’ll try to keep the visit within a years span.
