Savor Italy's flavorful fare in Dupont Circle

Urbana tantalizes all the senses. Inside our socially buzzing culinary hub, the energy is dynamic and the aromas decadent. Our menu lists a bounty of handcrafted pastas and other fresh flavors, often coming from our own rooftop garden, while the beverage menu offers craft cocktails and a wide variety of wines (with a special focus on sustainability) that further delight the palate. Guests gather regularly in the expansive bar that features plush Mediterranean-toned seating plus small plates, a unique array of Amaro, cordials, and cocktails. Those arriving with a bigger appetite head to the dining room to indulge in Chef’s latest creations during festive meals, where highlights range from catching up with old friends to relishing Italian coastal cooking you won’t soon forget.
