From the folks behind BLT Steak comes Casa Nonna, an Italian restaurant opening this September. Located south of Dupont Circle, the restaurant will have a Roman influence both in the food and the decor. Think terra cotta floors, oak in the bar and lounge, tables built using reclaimed white oak and trattoria-style chairs that will make you think you’re lounging in the Piazza Navona.

At the helm will be Executive Chef Amy Brandwein, a Roberto Donna protege most recently of Fyve in Pentagon City. Her menu will focus on local and seasonal ingredients, but will be all Italian, all the time. Dishes will be served both a la carte and family style and will include house-made pasta and Neopolitan-style pizza fired in their mosaic-tiled pizza oven.

They plan to open in the next few weeks in the former California Pizza Kitchen space at 1250 Connecticut Ave., NW.
